Abstract

"Over the last 30 years, interest has grown in using clay as an environmentally friendly building material that has proved its ideal sustainability for centuries. Light earth constructions, where a wooden framework or timber-framed walls are infilled with clay and fiber material, have extraordinarily solid, structural characteristics. Earth constructions are no longer considered exotic today, which, in part, is due to this standard work. The publication presents the use of this 'old' building material comprehensively and modernly, and contains many practical tips about simplifying designs as well as using prefabricated clay materials in the contemporary construction process. The selected project examples show the diversity of this building material, and the self-build projects demonstrate the beauty of working with lightweight earth using your own hands. The book is aimed at builders, architects and engineers, producers and artisans, as well as self-builders."

Abstract

Tall Wood buildings have been at the foreground of innovative building practice in urban contexts for a number of years. From London to Stockholm, from Vancouver to Melbourne timber buildings of up to 20 storeys have been built, are under construction or being considered. This dynamic trend was enabled by developments in the material itself, prefabrication and more flexibility in fire regulations. The low CO2 footprint of wood - often regionally sourced - is another strong argument in its favour. This publication explains the typical construction types such as panel systems, frame and hybrid systems. An international selection of 13 case studies is documented in detail with many specially prepared construction drawings, demonstrating the range of the technology.

Abstract

Since it is now clear that in the future many raw materials will only be available to us in limited quantities, scientists have for some time been conducting intensive research into possible alternatives. Sustainability is the order of the day and the magic word for a better future in politics and industry. Moreover, environmental consciousness and a penchant for thinking in terms of material cycles have caught on with consumers: the use of environmentally compatible materials and production methods is desired, even taken for granted by the client. Designers and architects thus have a special

Abstract

Multi-layered, multi-faceted and malleable like no other building material – concrete offers enormous potential for the future. Depending on its composition, the uses for concrete range from simple furnishings to impressive interior designs, from fascinating façades to wide-spanning support structures. Love it or hate it, concrete is part of the building culture and – whether filigree, sculptural or massive – it’s here to stay thanks to the wealth of construction and design possibilities it offers our urbanised environment. Best of DETAIL Concrete brings together highlights from DETAIL magazine from the past few years about this expressive building material. In addition to interesting professional insights and articles, the publication provides a comprehensive section of case studies – from train stations to family homes to churches – that offer inspiration for individual design work.
