Imagine No 01 Facades


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Looking at the development of facade technology, after 60 years of curtain wall systems, 30 years of element-facade systems and ten years of experience with the integration of environmental services in double facades, it is clear that the peak of optimization has been reached. No further technical developments can be expected by continuing to apply extra layers for each additional technical function. By understanding facades (or envelopes) as part of an integral building, we can see that creating the future envelope has to be done on a 'network' basis: employing systems and methods of thinking that provide the possibility to develop different aspects simultaneously, and to combine them as required. The envelope has to be seen as a functional part of the entire building, serving a part of the demand by providing the necessary technologies and qualities. In this regard, we must withdraw from material and structure-orientated thinking and construction, instead developing the envelope as a hybrid system. Materials, technologies and production processes have to be integrated in the summation and combined into an all-encompassing result. "Facades" comprises various themes covering strategic, material and technological developments. Aspects such as function integration, networking of elements, new structures and materials as well as the addition of functions to existing structures are investigated and explained in 85 examples.

Intelligente Glasfassaden Intelligent Glass Fa Ades


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

"Intelligente Glasfassaden" zeigt die massgebenden Entwicklungen bei verglasten Gebäudehüllen, von Ganzglaskonstruktionen aus Einzelscheiben bis zu komplexen Zweite-Haut-Fassadensystemen. Eigenschaften und Behandlung des Materials Glas, Befestigungssysteme sowie die verschiedenen Fassadentypen werden detailliert beschrieben und anhand von architektonisch überzeugenden Realisierungen vorgestellt. Intelligente Glasfassaden basieren auf ganzheitlichen Konzepten, die eine natürliche Belüftung, Nachtauskühlung, optimale Tageslichtausnutzung, Schaffung von Pufferzonen etc. als energiesparende Maßnahmen vorsehen. Die Publikation ist ein unentbehrliches Arbeitsinstrument für alle Fachleute; für Architekten wie auch für Ingenieure, Fassadenplaner und Gebäudetechniker, die sich für die Entwicklung und Konstruktion von intelligenten Glasfassaden interessieren. "Zahlreiche Schaubilder und Darstellungen machen die komplexe Materie verständlich." (BauNetz-Infoline, 08.05.01)

Product Development And Architecture


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

From idea to product In the construction sector, demand is steadily increasing for innovative products. Product Development and Architecture presents selected examples that illustrate how the planning disciplines can contribute to such innovations in building. Introductory essays comprehensively explain the thematic and methodological framework. Case studies exemplify the transformation of ideas into prototypes or products. Creating dynamics, shifting boundaries, building and expanding networks, conserving resources, developing and optimizing planning tools, as well as implementing use-additive processes — all these processes are discussed in order to clarify the necessary collaboration between various actors in the construction industry. Groundbreaking solutions clearly explain the role applied sciences play in the active collaboration between university and industry, as well as the interdisciplinary integration of disciplines and experts. This publication presents interdisciplinary collaborative projects such as the “Seaweed Facade,” which resulted in the realization of a building with a bioreactor facade at the International Building Exhibition in Hamburg in 2012, or the "Printed Envelope,” the result of a collaborative research project in which free forms for the facade design were generated from 3D computer-generated processes.

Deflateables


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Pneumatic structures were developed during the 1960s. However, the energy crisis and aesthetic developments impeded the use of these structures as a mainstream construction method. Nowadays, they are typically used in special areas of architecture and design. "Deflateables" concentrates on the limited knowledge of vacuum constructions and develops a range of aesthetic, technical and functional design possibilities. Very few designs that use pressurized constructions have actually been realized, even today, despite the fact that this technology offers simple, positive aspects: the air pressure of the earth can be used as a stabilizing and form-giving parameter, creating a specific and inspiring shape. In addition, the very nature of this technology provides varying degrees of thermal and acoustic insulation. Of course, it has its weaknesses, such as potential leakage and the need for high pressurization of the construction; but new material technologies and specific structural concepts can bring solutions to such issues. Exploiting the possibilities of extremely light and energetically active constructions, deflateables are one of the promising fields of architectural and design developments. The chance to create structures that can move and react to requests such as user and climate requirements as well as formative demands lifts this topic onto the level of a realistic and usable technology for as-yet-unknown design possibilities.
