Architectonics refers to the principles, as well as the study or character, of various types of architectural structure. The term is used to describe a structure that is organised and unified in a way that suggests an architectural design.
It has its origin in Aristotelian philosophy where it concerns the structure of different types of knowledge and the relationships that exist between their classifications.
