Read e-book online Smart Materials and Technologies in Architecture PDF

By Michelle Addington,Daniel Schodek

at the present time, architects and architects are commencing to glance towards advancements in new
"smart" or "intelligent" fabrics and applied sciences for options to long-standing problems
in development layout. besides the fact that, those new fabrics have to this point been utilized in a diverse
but principally idiosyncratic nature, simply because fairly few architects have entry to
information in regards to the varieties or homes of those new fabrics or technologies.
Two of the major specialists during this box - Addington and Schodek - have solved this
problem by means of incorporating all of the proper details of all of the newest technologies
available to architects and architects during this one quantity. They current fabrics by
describing their primary features, and cross directly to establish and recommend how
these related features should be exploited by means of execs to accomplish their design
goals. the following, the wealth of technical figuring out already on hand within the materials
science and engineering literature is ultimately made available to a layout audience.
