Good answer above. The word is architectural, (it's also interesting that Solomon's temple had "ribs" of cedar. How cool is that?) but it also has to do with "knitting" things together in a miraculous fashion. Note that other words are used for this, but they are contained in the same pattern, which is one of tearing things apart (like Adam, like a sacrifice) and putting them back together in new ways.
We can see it in the construction of the body in the womb. We can see it in cooking a feast! We can see it in the Law, which divided Jew and Gentile, cutting humanity like a sacrifice. The Law was "elementary," that is, raw. Then the Spirit comes, who gives us all our amazing technology, and unites Jew and Gentile into one new Adam -- but only after He has constructed the Bride.
Of course, the "reassembling" of the sacrifice has to do with resurrection, a different kind of body, a transformation from natural to spiritual. All these things are prefigured in this single word in Genesis 2.
This also explains the weirdness of some of the holy things in Leviticus. Two fabrics could not be mixed. Two crops could not be mixed. Israel was to be "raw materials." The only person who could do holy miraculous mixings was the High Priest, who wore mixed fabrics, and animal, vegetable and mineral (the entire creation) and represented them before God. The holy oil and incense were also mixtures that were not be replicated.
Satan also mixes things, but they don't stay together. His first mixing was of a heavenly angel with an earthly one (an animal), a kinghood before God's time, a false "Shekinah" (note that the beasts in heaven are "mixtures" of earthly ones). Heaven and earth also prefigure man and wife, to be joined together by God. Satan "mixed" the sons of God (of Seth) with the daughters of Cain. Likewise, he attempted to mix Judah with the kingdom of Omri. The Herods also were "marrying and giving in marriage" with Gentiles (which is no sin) but with no reference to conversion or the Covenant. It is a yoking that cannot last. Where God joins man and wife, Satan proposes a one night stand - such as the friendship of harlot and beast, Herod and Pilate, Israel and Rome, against Christ and against the Church. This was a Jew-Gentile mixing that would fall apart like iron and clay. Where Paul was stitching Jew and Gentile together over 30-40 years by the Spirit's "technology," the Herods, as anti-Christ (worm-filled manna) were doing it through surgical butchery. They built a Temple on sand, instead of a living Temple, a new Bride.
Most of this stuff comes from James B. Jordan. If you interested, his amazing book "Through New Eyes" is a great start and is online for free at www.biblicalhorizons.com
