Overview

  • Covers the development of constructional solutions from first design idea to call for bids
  • Provides the necessary information for design, construction, and implementation
  • Detail drawings highlight constructional solutions for design ideas

Aims and Scope

Designing and constructing load-bearing building elements

Columns, walls and floors make up the skeleton of nearly every building. This third volume in the series SCALE, Support| Materialise, takes an in-depth look at these load-bearing structures, covering the development and realization of appropriate constructions from idea and design intention all the way to constructional implementation. Following the traditional building methods of massive, cross-wall, and skeleton construction, it points the way toward a material-appropriate constructional approach to these defining structural elements – columns, walls,and floors. Special attention is given to how constructional and technical considerations can be harmonized with spatial and formal commitments. The load-bearing elements are organized, described, and explored in detail from a material as well as a formal and constructional perspective. Their practical implementation is illustrated by a series of international examples.
