European first grip fixing façade – Recyclable façade system with reclosable fastener fixation

S.ARCH International Conference on Architecture & Built Environment 2018
22.-24.05.2018, Venice, Italy


Speech:
Exterior Insulation Finishing Systems (EIFS) has a gap in sustainability assessment of the entire life-cycle (including profitable separation, disposal and recycling) and positive recycling behavior of building components at the end of the period of use (recovery of resources). The aim of the research project facade4zeroWaste was the idea of a recyclable facade insulation system that can easily be dismantled after its lifetime and reused thanks to an innovative grip fixing system – Grip fixing instead of adhesive. The project facade4zeroWaste includes the development, architectural design relevance, grants of patents, results of pre-certification testing’s and the product publication. In January 2017 the façade system was presented from Sto SE & Co. KGaA Germany as the product StoSystain R on the building fair BAU 2017 in Munich. There the façade system was getting the prize: Innovation Award for Architecture and Building. The first 6 building projects with the StoSystain R system are realized already in year 2017 and 2018 and in the near future more objects with StoSystain are planned.

Content

The course discusses the interrelations of structure, form and space with the aid of actual architecture projects. The aim is also to evaluate the final design by assessing structure, form or space. Is there truth in construction? How much fake can the viewer stand?

Objective
The aim of the course is to use this knowledge in order to be able to carry out a personal evaluation when viewing projects, but also in one’s own design work. Students will broaden their discursive ability so as to be able to substantiate their own position as a designer and as a judge with expert arguments.

Course details


Content

This course will concentrate on studying concepts and construction philosophies that consciously do without technology in architecture and in which architectural formulations are developed from technology. New relationships are sought that will allow for easy functionality, manufacture, operation and maintenance as well as robustness. This seemingly simple technology is the result of a complex thinking process that embraces all phases of a project. Based on examples that will be elaborated, awareness is raised for the complexity of architecture in comparison to low-tech concepts, which will also be conceptualised.

Objective
This course will give students a valuable insight into the complexity of contemporary architecture. They should then be able to apply low-tech construction philosophy appropriately and resolve architecturally relevant decisions by means of complex theoretical concepts.

Content

The decision to use a certain material in architecture is greatly dependent on the respective properties of the material and their advantages (and disadvantages) in view of their planned use. Here, the interaction between material and technology is a central issue. Based on examples to be analysed, awareness will be raised as to what may influence material choice and which technologies are used in the process. The aim is to seek alternatives both in terms of the material and applied technologies.

Obective
After successfully completing this course, students should be keenly aware of the fact that material choice is a matter of careful consideration and should neither be made spontaneously nor left to the preference of the designer. This decision is highly dependent on the development of the state of technology. Students will be capable of analysing and justifying a material choice from different viewpoints.
