Engineering Koolhaas

“Who says that structure should not be reinvented?. . . Who says that reinventing structure cannot be creative?”

(Rem Koolhaas, 2003)

ARUP Journal har siden 2005 udgivet 3 gode artikler om deres arbejde med OMA i forbindelse med CCTV. Og jeg synes det er super fedt at fÃ¥ historien fra ingeniørens tekniske vinkel. Læs alle 3 artikler nedenfor…

Structural engineering design and approvals – Issue 2/2005
“The winning design combines administration and offices, news and broadcasting, programme production and services – the entire process – in a single loop of interconnected activities. The specifics of the structure evolved in tandem with the specifics of the building as they in turn evolved, a notable example being the placement of doubleheight studios within the Towers and Base, which significantly influenced the structural form”.

Building the structure – issue 2/2008
“Erecting two massive leaning Towers, and connecting them with a 9-13 storey Overhang suspended 36 storeys in the air, presented the structural engineers and contractors with unprecedented design and construction challenges. This is the third Arup Journal article about the CCTV (China Central Television) building in Beijing; it covers the construction of this unique project”. (Download PDF)

Services engineering design – Issue 3/2005
“The CCTV Headquarters’ three-dimensional layout is designed to break down the ‘ghettoes’ that tend to form in the process of making TV programmes. The building’s ‘loop’ form encourages staff to mix, creating a better end-product more economically and efficiently”. (Download PDF)

Edition DETAIL – "Components and Systems"

Components and Systems

Edition DETAIL – “Components and Systems”

– Modular Building: Design, Construction, New Technologies

Masser af bøger handler om masser af ting – denne nyudgivelse fra Edition DETAIL er fyldt med projekter man sluger med glæde. Fraværet 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 tillæg er fx de nye produktions teknologier som giver mulighede for  noget der her ville hedde “unika prefabs”…. lyder helt bagvendt, haha!

Prisen kan føles i den høje ende, men alternativer til Details udgivelser skal man desværre kigge langt efter!

quote11Construction 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 World’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.
