Rethinking Building Skins: Transformative Technologies and Research Trajectories details the latest research, trends and solutions in the field. it is designed to guide the reader in translating research into practice, including guidance on the main regulations and available best practices that will help researchers and practitioners gain an overview of the most important literature. Sections define the performance requirements for a facade, discuss available solutions and performance criteria, and cover building regulation constraints, all with the help of case studies. In addition, users will find content on the advantages and disadvantages of current solutions, along with implementation and innovation tactics.
The book then considers various research trajectories with a clear reference to methods, findings, and impacts on practice. It also includes interviews with key figures in the field. This title offers a clear, objective, evidence-based view of the state-of-the-art in facade engineering.
- Gives an objective view of façade engineering from the perspectives of research and industry
- Provides analyses of different research trajectories and insights from leaders in the field
- Draws up a framework of available façade solutions ranked according to fixed criteria
- Connects specialist areas in façade design to one another and emphasizes practical applications
- Considers performance criteria, policy frameworks and market opportunities in façade engineering
Researchers in applied building physics, facade fabrication, architectural technology, and building engineering; Professionals working in facade engineering, facade consultancy, facade design, and building engineering.
