Review of Architecture and Structural Engineering.

With this annual package you will receive the DETAIL structure 01/2016 and the DETAIL structure 02/2016.


DETAIL structure 01/2016

Bridges are among an engineer’s most fascinating projects, even when they are not major items of transport infrastructure. As an engineer and architect, Marc Mimram has completed a great many large and small bridges as well as other projects with complex loadbearing structures. In the interview, the trained mathematician, engineer, architect and philosopher explains his approach and stresses the importance he sees in responsible engagement with the existing situation.

All the projects in this issue make clear how structural engineering has a considerable ­influence on the architecture and the urban design impact of buildings. In the case of the stadium in Nice, the undulating form of its ­hybrid structure in glued laminated timber and steel makes reference to the surrounding hilly countryside. The reserved appearance of the steel structure in the Netherlands, on the other hand, creates a spacious, well-lit, column-free hall to act as the communicative heart of the building.

With the office high-rise in Turin by Renzo Piano, the engineering structure shimmers as a defining design element through the transparent facade. In the final case study, the designers of the Collier Memorial at MIT in Cambridge, USA, explain why the keystone was place first ­before any of the other massive granite blocks.


DETAIL structure 02/2016

This edition of DETAILstructure describes ­international projects to which structural ­engineers have made significant contributions. For the access bridge to a new island in ­Nijmegen, Ney-Poulissen engineers designed a highly sculptural, integral, prestressed ­post-tensioned reinforced concrete bridge. With the extension to the European Southern Observatory in Garching, the engineers at Mayr Ludescher Partner ensured the light, floating effect of the cantilevering building was achieved by providing an efficient loadbearing structure. In the elegant, bright, naturally lit interior of the Factory Hall in Landsberg am Lech by ­Ackermann Architekten and Christoph Ackermann Ingenieure, a clearly defined, carefully detailed structure fabricated from standard rolled sections adds to the high quality of the architecture and the working environment.

The background article about ArtEngineering shows that the engineer’s skills are also appreciated in this special field of work. This group of structural engineers operates at the interface of construction and art, often undertaking the complete realisation of art objects. In the interview, Herwig Bretis explains their close involvement from the initial concept and how they strive to implement the essence of the design.
