Abstract
Good architecture is innovative use of engineering principles along with satisfying use of design in a pleasing and aesthetically acceptable manner. The majority of current window expressions are characterized/affected by a dominant frame. In this report alternative construction solutions will be presented and examined. The expression that the investigation strives for is a window in a wall-sandwich element of concrete and isolation with a minimal window frame or a non-visible attachment frame of the window. Specific material is chosen; glass and concrete. To give the reader full comprehension of the attempt, the expression is shown in illustrations.
Interesting practical solutions are introduced with pictures and blueprints. The reader... (More)
Good architecture is innovative use of engineering principles along with satisfying use of design in a pleasing and aesthetically acceptable manner. The majority of current window expressions are characterized/affected by a dominant frame. In this report alternative construction solutions will be presented and examined. The expression that the investigation strives for is a window in a wall-sandwich element of concrete and isolation with a minimal window frame or a non-visible attachment frame of the window. Specific material is chosen; glass and concrete. To give the reader full comprehension of the attempt, the expression is shown in illustrations.
Interesting practical solutions are introduced with pictures and blueprints. The reader will get an insight in the demands and standards that have to be fulfilled for a good result. The window must fulfill the demands regarding a comfortable indoor climate, limit energy usage, decent light through put, etc. The materials and their characteristics that are utilized in the window and its framing are presented.
Two construction proposals are presented and possible problems that may occur during their life-cycle are discussed further at the end of the report. (Less)
