Review of Architecture and Structural Engineering.

With this annual package you will receive the DETAIL structure 01/2015 and the DETAIL structure 02/2015.


DETAIL structure 01/2015

In order to achieve this, understanding and trust needs to exist between them as well as intensive and professional cooperation. DETAIL structure shows how such collaborations lead to the creation of exceptional architecture. Planning and construction processes are illuminated in detail. Both sides provide their insight. The in-depth project documentations include the major construction details and, most of all, the structurally relevant elements.

This edition includes a modern single family home in Ticino based on a prestressed bridge construction, an expressively designed concert hall in Lower Bavaria’s Blaibach, the filigree space frame covering an archery range in Japan and a new roof structure for the Messe Frankfurt – asymmetrical, yet efficient in terms of material usage. And, the most important design principles for pedestrian bridges are discussed thoroughly: there hardly exists any other building type that displays such a tight connection between design, structure and detail.


DETAIL structure 02/2015

In high-rise construction, the engineer Bill Baker‘s innovative structural engineering concept for the Burj Khalifa in Dubai opened up an entire new dimension. In his background article he shows that designing tall buildings can be both simple and complex. A tower, however tall it is, remains a vertical cantilever, and as such a statically determinate system. On the other hand, it can be very d­emanding to design a suitable structure for that purpose.

An exceptional feat of engineering was also required for the nearly one and a half kilo­metres long, doubly curved highway bridge in Sundsvall in Sweden, where the bridge ­elegantly spans across the bay. It ­also required a very strong performance from the involved firms in terms of construction technology and logistics – not only due to the tight schedule, but also because none of the steel components, prefabricated in southern Germany and weighing up to 100 tons, have the exact same shape.

In contrast, the new subway stations Szent Gellért tér and Fővám tér with their high design quality are located deeply underground. Here, we illustrate the related architecture and structural design as well as the construction processes, based on the cut-and-cover method. The further projects presented in this issue complement the broad range of structures. As diverse as the featured examples are, aside from their exciting structural solutions and construction processes they share high demands in terms of architectural design. Thus, they ­represent the basic idea of DETAIL structure: the successful interplay between design, structure, and construction.
