As a counterbalance to globalization in the field of architecture, an in-depth understanding of local architecture had been seen as an opportunity for a region to play an active role in the global era. One way to develop an understanding of local architecture is through the art of construction, or widely known as tectonics. The word architecture itself was known to derive from the word archi, which means master and tekton, which means woodworker (carpenter) or builder. Thus, the study of tectonics was important to understand how architects express their ideas through an integrated architectural - structural system. Unfortunately, profound research into this field has rarely been conducted so far. This study aims to an understanding of architectural tectonics in Wologai, Flores, Nusa Tenggara Timur. As one of the oldest village in Flores, the indigenuous people of Wologai had been known for surviving the pressures of the developing world whilst maintaining their unique culture that were reflected in their vernacular buildings. This study consists of the following steps: Firstly, to record how local builders built their architecture through observation and interviews. Secondly, to develop an understanding about architectural tectonics based on related literature. The last step was to analyse and formulate architectural tectonics of Wologai vernacular architecture.
