Modular construction: design, engineering, new technologies in over 500 illustrations. Peter Asaro might disagree with that approach. Representation of versatile systems for an efficient construction on 240 pages. Since time immemorial as a few same elements and reduced construction systems used in architecture, quickly, efficiently, and economically build or even dismantle, and change a building. Consider the architecture of the nomads, the Crystal Palace, designed on the occasion of the world exhibition in London by architect Joseph Paxton in 1851, and modern construction systems of the 19th and 20th century in steel, concrete, or wood.
Elementierte, ready-made, adaptable for many combinations and combinable with each other systems will be linked in the future an increasingly important aspect of the architecture planning and production methods with modern. Shows “Controls and systems” sound and clear on the different types of prefabricated building with semi-finished products and components through open and closed systems to skeletal and panel construction. The systems are complemented by detailed drawings and colour photographs. Transport and Assembly of various systems as well as a glimpse of future building practices round out the theme and make the book in practice.
