Edition DETAIL – “Components and Systems”
– Modular Building: Design, Construction, New Technologies
Masser af bÃ¸ger handler om masser af ting – denne nyudgivelse fra Edition DETAIL er fyldt med projekter man sluger med glÃ¦de. FravÃ¦ret af ordet PREFAB er befriende, og selve titlen viser ogsÃ¥ en tilgang som hellere tager fat pÃ¥ bredden i de tankegange, metodikker og processor der ligger forud for dette begreb. Et tillÃ¦g er fx de nye produktions teknologier som giver mulighede forÂ noget der her ville hedde “unika prefabs”…. lyder helt bagvendt, haha!
Construction systems reduced to the smallest possible number of identical elements have long been used by architects to build structures as well as dismantle and change them as quickly, efficiently, and economically as possible. Think of the architecture of the nomads, the Crystal Palace designed by the architect John Paxton for the London Worldâ€™s Fair of 1851, or the modern construction systems of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in steel, concrete, and wood. Coupled with modern digital planning and production methods, modular precast construction systems that are adaptable for many combinations and capable of being combined with one other will play an increasingly important role in architecture in the future. Discussions of transporting and assembling the various systems round off the topic and make this book an indispensable practical companion.
