This paper is the first in a series of three which discusses some theoretical and practical aspect of a feedback finite element method for solving systems of linear second order elliptic partial differential equations with particular interest in classical linear elasticity. This first part introduces some nonstandard finite element spaces, though based on the usual square bilinear elements, permit local mesh refinement. The algebraic structure of these spaces and their approximation properties are analysed. An equivalent estimator for the H1 finite element error is developed.
