Neues Bauen mit Carbonbeton

Das bundesweite „Zwanzig20“-Konsortium „C3“ entwickelt leichten, flexiblen und nachhaltigen Carbonbeton. Er kann für Neubauten sowie für Sanierungen – zum Beispiel von Brücken – eingesetzt werden und soll in Zukunft den schweren, rostanfälligen Stahlbeton ersetzen.

Are We Still Modern?

Was modernism the last important epoch in the history of architecture? Or is a similarly revolutionary, all-encompassing movement currently in the making? What is it that provokes discussion today? Modernism continues to cast its shadow over the present, regardless of whether we try to escape its influence or make a stand against it. Is it even possible to flee from this shadow? By means of postmodernism, as was once the case? By retreating to a new historicism like we do today? Or might the real interest be found in once again picking up modernism’s trail? Might this lead to undiscovered sources of inspiration or might the same apply to modernism as Frank Zappa once said about jazz: modernism isn’t dead, it just smells funny? Did modernism choke on its own dogmatism, or did it have the life sucked from it by all of the bloodless and spiritless copying? In this series of departmental lectures in the 2016 spring semester, three architects and one architectural theorist will specifically address what has happened to the traces modernism left behind. For them, modernism is not a dark shadow to be avoided but a source of inspiration as well as a potentially fruitful source of friction.

Future Cities Laboratory: Innovative Research for Sustainable Cities

We are delighted to announce the Sustainable Built Environment (SBE) Regional Conference 2016 as a platform for exchange between researchers and practitioners of the construction sector to foster system thinking in the built environment. Consuming over 40% of total primary energy, the built environment is in the centre of worldwide strategies and measures towards a more sustainable future. To provide resilient solutions, a simple optimisation of individual technologies will not be sufficient. In contrast, whole-system thinking reveals and exploits connections between parts. Each system interacts with others on different scales (materials, components, buildings, cities) and domains (ecology, economy and social). Whole-system designers optimize the performance of such systems by understanding interconnections and identifying synergies. The more complete the design integration, the better the result.
