- Diagrids - Tragwerke aus diagonalen Stahlfachwerkgittern, die zuerst bei spektakulären Großbauten wie dem Swiss Re Tower in London ( die Gurke ) eingesetzt wurden - verbinden atemberaubende Ästhetik mit handfesten Vorteilen: einer massiven Materialersparnis, einem Gewinn an frei nutzbarer Geschossfläche und mehr Flexibilität. Dieses Buch erklärt erstmals umfassend alle Aspekte dieses neuen Tragwerkssystems.Steel diagrid structures are establishing themselves as a full option for load-bearing systems of mid to high-rise-buildings, providing a wide range of functional and economic advantages. The author, an experienced teacher, skillful photographer and relentless traveler, has documented many diagrid structures world-wide. The author deepens her approach from Understanding Steel Design to encompass more detailed textual and visual information. 184 pp. Englisch. Codice inventario libreria 9783038215646

Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

Diagrids are load-bearing structures made of steel diagonal grids. They were first used in the great buildings of the turn of the millennium, such as the Swiss Re Tower in London ("The Gherkin") and the Hearst Magazine Tower in New York City. Diagrids owe their ensuing popularity not only to their stunning aesthetic value, but also to their very tangible benefits: a massive saving of material, a significant gain in open, usable floor area, and increased flexibility. The book looks at contemporary diagrid buildings such as Capital Gate (Abu Dhabi), Guangzhou IFC (China), Bow Encana (Calgary), CCTV (China) and the Doha Tower (Qatar) to establish an understanding of the methodology of the design of this innovative type. At its opening in 2014, The Leadenhall Building in London will be the first skyscraper without a bearing inner core--thanks to a diagrid structure. This book explains comprehensively for the first time all of the aspects involved in this new bearing structure. The author, experienced in teaching, research, and practice (recent publication: Understanding Steel Design: An Architectural Design Manual, 2011), has tracked the development of this technology from its beginnings and employs thorough photographic documentation of the construction phases of many diagrid structures.

From the Author:

Diagrid Structures is the result of several years of research and site visits to key diagrid buildings around the world such as Capital Gate (Abu Dhabi), Guangzhou International Finance Center (China) and most recently The Leadenhall Building (London). The book covers the development of the diagrid from the initial work of Shukhov to its remarkable re-emergence in the work of Foster+Partners with Swiss Re and the Hearst Magazine Tower. Although the diagrid projects constructed to date are all curiously different and unique, I have worked to establish a methodology that others may use to design with diagrids. Additional buildings included: Aldar HQ (Abu Dhabi), Al Bahar Towers (Abu Dhabi), Doha Tower (Qatar), Canton Tower (Guangzhou), Royal Ontario Museum (Toronto), London City Hall (London), One Shelley Street (Sydney), Manukau Institute of Technology (Auckland), CCTV (Beijing).
