Abstract

This book explores the ways in which new technologies are changing concrete and the ways in which it is used. Through a series of montages, drawings and photographs, it visually speculates on concretes capacity as an urban catalyst, its potential for defining cities and the many ways in which it is being applied in urban renewal. With thoughtful, informed contributions from experts such as Mark West, George Baird, Will Bruder and Charles Waldheim, among others, and specially taken photographs of concrete buildings around the world (although Toronto features heavily as an exemplar of a successful concrete city), this book is key reading for all architecture students and practitioners, and offers a seductive argument for the reconsideration and reclamation of this age-old building material.

Abstract

Exemples de réalisations architecturales avec des ardoises de la marque Eternit, en 3 volumes. La versatilité de l’ardoise en fibres-ciment et la multitude de ses applications architecturales sont illustrées de façon convaincante dans ‘Best of Slates’. Qu’il s’agisse de maisons uni- ou plurifamiliales, d’immeubles à appartements, de résidences gériatriques, de bâtiments pour commerces ou bureaux, de centres récréatifs, d’écoles ou de jardins d’enfants, le fibres-ciment est un matériau universel qui satisfait aux exigences constructives les plus variées tout en procurant un aspect original et contemporain aux réalisations pratiques. Le large éventail de couleurs et de formats proposés s’adapte avec aise et élégance aux idées architecturales les plus créatives. En outre, l’ardoise en fibres-ciment est capable de reprendre certaines traditions constructives locales ou régionales et de les transposer en un langage de formes moderne. Les exigences posées aux enveloppes constructives se font plus rigoureuses de jour en jour. Non seulement les revêtements de façade et de toiture doivent garantir étanchéité et confort, mais doivent aussi être durables, recyclables et efficaces du point de vue énergétique. Avec leur structure multicouches haut rendement – isolation, film d’étanchéité, structure porteuse et revêtement de toiture ou bardage de façade d’après le cas – les enveloppes constructives à base d’ardoises en fibres-ciment sont devenues des éléments incontournables dans l’accomplissement des normes environnementales actuelles. Leur format réduit permet à l’architecte inventif de négocier courbes, arêtes, projections et renfoncements de façade sans problème. Dans les exemples montrés ici, l’enveloppe constructive complète se compose d’ardoises en fibres-ciment. Ces revêtements uniformes, réalisés d’un trait, ont un effet sculptural indéniable et confèrent un aspect contemporain aux constructions les plus traditionnelles. Les nombreux exemples internationaux rassemblés ici – Belgique, Pays-Bas, Irlande, Grande-Bretagne, Luxembourg, France et Allemagne – sont agrémentés de dessins à l’échelle 1:10. Il ne s’agit pas de plans architecturaux mais bien d’exemples schématiques de solutions individualisées, adaptées aux contingences locales des différents pays. Formes, formats, motifs de pose et techniques de construction peuvent en effet varier d’un endroit à l’autre.

Abstract

Today, concrete experiences a renaissance; one could speak of a neo-concrete era. The advantages adjudicated to this material have fundamentally changed. Modern types of concrete are available on the market for a multitude of applications - ranging from light and insulating to filigree and high pressure resistant. Concrete fascinates as no other material does since in its fluid state it can be forced into any conceivable mould while becoming highly pressure resistant and massive when hardened. However, the advantage also becomes the material’s main disadvantage: concrete and formwork are closely interdependent. Only with formwork does concrete become a usable building material. Thus elaborate concrete parts require elaborate formwork. The book 'imagine 08. Concretable' illustrates what concrete is already capable of as well as what else is possible. Furthermore, it also shows future developments in the material - where concrete’s technological, constructive and - always a driving factor - aesthetic and design-related potential lie.

Abstract

Wood is suitable for use in multistorey building construction with barely any restrictions. This is new and requires creative rethinking of tried and tested practices in wood construction: classical categories can be replaced by mixed construction methods as necessary within a project, which yields completely new possibilities in designing wood structures. The Manual provides architects, engineers and wood specialists with the essential expertise on the new systematics and construction methodology, from the design to prefabrication to the implementation on site. It lays the grounds for mutual understanding among everyone involved in the project, to facilitate the necessary cooperation in the integral planning and construction process.

Abstract

Material in architecture is generally associated with its individual and distinctive main characteristic, a reduced description which often undermines the ambiguity and true meaning of materiality. Material is often employed based on or with fundamental focus on expressing this preconceived identity, leaving space and material devaluated of their opportunities and possibilities. This publication examines materials in architecture through the eyes of the architects themselves. Interviews with 33 practices from around the world – including OFIS arhitekti, UNStudio, Casanova + Hernandez, and CEBRA –shed light on current paradigm shifts in brick and tile, wood, and glass.

Abstract

Over the concluding decades of the twentieth century, the historic preservation community increasingly turned its attention to modern buildings, including bungalows from the 1930s, gas stations and diners from the 1940s, and office buildings and architectural homes from the 1950s. Conservation efforts, however, were often hampered by a lack of technical information about the products used in these structures, and to fill this gap Twentieth-Century Building Materials was developed by the U.S. Department of the Interior's National Park Service and first published in 1995. Now, this invaluable guide is being reissued—with a new preface by the book's original editor. With more than 250 illustrations, including a full-color photographic essay, the volume remains an indispensable reference on the history and conservation of modern building materials. Thirty-seven essays written by leading experts offer insights into the history, manufacturing processes, and uses of a wide range of materials, including glass block, aluminum, plywood, linoleum, and gypsum board. Readers will also learn about how these materials perform over time and discover valuable conservation and repair techniques. Bibliographies and sources for further research complete the volume.
