Liquid Stone: New Architecture in Concrete

Produced at a cost of five billion cubic yards in keeping with yr, concrete is the second one most generally ate up substance in the world, after water. it's ubiquitous and simply taken with no consideration because the stuff of sidewalks and roads, energy vegetation and parking garages.

Sample text

The following terms describe the arrangement of the masonry units: - stretcher bond – a half-brick wall with the masonry units laid lengthwise along the wall - header bond – a one-brick wall with the masonry units laid across the wall - header bond with brick-on-edge courses a) b) c) d) e) Fig. 34: Examples of jointing a) Bucket handle b) Flush c) Weathered (non-facing side of masonry partially exposed to weather) d) Recessed (non-facing side of masonry partially exposed to weather) e) Protruding (joint material severely exposed to weather) 36 Bonded masonry The width of the thickness of the wall is greater than the length of one masonry unit.

The surface finish of facing bricks can be smooth, granular or rough. Facing bricks with three good faces (one stretcher and two headers) or even four good faces (two stretchers and two headers) can also be supplied. The facing side makes the brick frost resistant and hence suitable for exposure to the weather. We can deduce from this that standard bricks are less suitable for exposed situations. Calcium silicate Calcium silicate masonry units are produced from lime and quartz sand and are hardened autoclaves.

And the straight or right-angled plate permits user-defined elements right up to intervention in the external spaces. Schinkel’s Academy of Architecture: an example of a grid layout A close study of the plan layouts of the (no longer existent) Academy of Architecture in Berlin reveals how Schinkel was tied to the column grid when trying to realise the actual internal layout requirements. The possibility of creating interiors without intervening columns, as he had seen and marvelled at on his trip to England in 1826, was not available to him for reasons of cost.
