Dasparkhotel – hotel from the sewer

Austrian designer Andreas Strauss (Andreas Strauss) conceived and organized a small network of hotels under the name of the original Dasparkhotel, consisting of several stand-alone “numbers”, which is essentially a former sewer pipe. Massive concrete pipes are fitted with a door with combination lock, a double bed, jack and the small window, and may be used as one more place to hide in case of apocalypse.

However, these hotels – this is more camping, because they do not have their own service infrastructure (except the common toilets, showers and a Read the rest of this entry »

Use of micro-piles in the foundations.

Micropiles are piles of small diameter below 35 cm, perforated “in situ”, vertical or inclined, used for the foundation and serve to transmit the load from one structure to deeper soil layers. They are resistant to tension and compression, and are composed of a steel tube that is placed inside a hole drilled into the ground and get a grout injected.

They have the same common use piles, but its function differs according to the materials section and the efforts can bear.

The foundation with micropiles processes include, implementation and monitoring of the piles, the location of the machinery at the implant site. This procedure is used when the soil layers do not have the capacity to absorb the Read the rest of this entry »


Industrial uses of structural laminated wood beams specially for warehouses, factories, railway structures, docks and warehouses.


Typical uses of laminated timber beams

Industrial uses of structural laminated wood beams specially for warehouses, factories, railway structures, docks and warehouses.

Commercial: Shopping malls, hotels and restaurants.
Recreation: Tennis courts, swimming pool covers, gyms and pedestrian bridges.
Institutional: Schools, universities and hospitals.
Residential: Houses and multi room.
Agricultural: barns, bridges, barns and sheds.


Industrial: Warehouses, factories, railway structures, docks and warehouses.

Plywood is made up of planks of wood glued together and attached to pressure

The manufacture of laminated beams is a conceptually simple process. That is to produce increased resistance of solid elements, consisting of boards glued severally reduced thickness so that you can not separate or identify the work of each sheet. To do this you must use dry wood, suitable adhesive, apply the appropriate pressure and perform the operation in a workshop with Read the rest of this entry »


The structural glulam beams are pieces of rectangular cross-section of fixed width and height constant or variable and straight or curved axis

Incredible modern structural laminated wood beams work

Structural laminated wood beams

What is a plywood beam?
The structural glulam beams are pieces of rectangular cross-section of fixed width and height constant or variable and straight or curved axis, consisting of sheets or tables in an irreversible with a strong adhesive or glue and bonded under pressure. The glulam beams do not, under any circumstances, nails or staples as binding elements of the tables.

The adhesive bonding is more effective, carries no decrease in the effectiveness section and in some cases increases the nominal resistance of the sections.

Such beams have greater strength and rigidity than dimensional lumber, this means that large gaps can be achieved with minimal need for intermediate supports.

It also means that builders, engineers and architects are endless design using laminated beams, either in construction applications for housing, commercial roofs for storage or bridges.

Characteristics of Structural Glulam
Currently, the plywood is a material that has achieved a dramatic technical development and its benefits far outweigh those offered by other building materials. This new product has a Read the rest of this entry »


How they maintain “Todaiji Temple”, the greatest edification of Wood Temple in the World

Todaiji Temple, the greatest edification of Wood in the World

The great temple Todaiji East is an impressive Buddhist temple made from wood found in Nara, Japan. A pagoda that houses a giant statue of Buddha and the temple also currently serves as Kegon school of Buddhism. This structure holds the world record as the largest wooden building in the world, but is 33% smaller than the original monument.

This type of building in wood called Pagodas, striking five-story buildings up and, despite its antiquity and simplicity in extructura are able to withstand earthquakes much more modern buildings collapse because wood tends to warp when you put a lot of strength, but is also flexible enough to absorb the seismic stress.

The building of this architectural complex, located in the city of Nara, was started around the year 743. Inside, they worshiped the Daibutsu, a colossal statue of Buddha 15 meters tall and made of bronze gilt., Completed in 751. Since its inception the main buildings have been restored several times due to earthquakes and wars suffered in this area, the first of these restorations took place in 1180 when they were destroyed during a war. Were restored by the Buddhist priest Choge using a new architectural style called Daibutsu-yo. However, war again, destroyed the main buildings of the complex in 1567, preserved at present, Read the rest of this entry »


Bamboo is used in areas where the wood grows, where the climate allows the use of lightweight materials

The Bamboo Construction

Bamboo is one of the most interesting materials that exist today. Tough, durable and sustainable raw material is used as flooring, paneling and furniture. The most important thing is that they increasingly used in home construction. Is so strong and flexible steel is called the plant is five times stronger than concrete.

Bamboo is used in light construction, in areas where the wood grows, where the climate allows the use of lightweight materials. The flexibility of the wood gives seismic characteristics. . Here are some of the great advantages for use in building homes that have become the favorite material of architects and builders.

Characteristics of bamboo:
Bamboo is lightweight, flexible, low cost. It is not very durable. It requires skilled labor for use in buildings. It has good resistance to earthquakes, but very bad with the rains, hurricanes, insects. It is suitable for hot and humid climates.

Is possible to use bamboo in many sectors of construction, which is not exposed to water or excessive heat, but usually it is used in combination with other materials such as other wood, clay, lime, cement, galvanized iron, palm leaves.

Deconstruction is to free the architecture of the modern rules, constraining its followers judged as “form follows function”

The architecture decontructivismo

The decontructivismo is an architectural movement that began in the 80’s. Their bases are leaving the straight line, the plane (called Euclidean geometry), and work deformation, stretching, smoothness of surfaces, dislocations, curves, hyperbolas, parabolas, denying the structure and polarity as the coating. etc. Deconstructionist architecture is manifested not only in the aesthetics of the exterior form, but it alters, distorts, and joins the internal structure.

The basic characteristics of this movement consists in the use of seemingly complex geometries, but are a result, almost always, the deformation or displacement of base areas that make up the geometry.

The attempt of deconstruction is to free the architecture of the modern rules, constraining its followers judged as “form follows function” (“form follows function”), “the purity of form” and the “truth of the materials “(” truth on materials “).
The visual appearance of the buildings of this style is Read the rest of this entry »


A way to make the architectural design of a sustainable way, seeking to use natural resources so as to reduce the environmental impact

What is Sustainable Architecture and Sustainable


Subtend is defined as architecture or sustainable a way to make the architectural design of a sustainable way, seeking to use natural resources so as to reduce the environmental impact of buildings on the environment and inhabitants. Also called sustainable architecture, green architecture, eco-architecture, architecture and environmentally conscious, a major feature is the energy efficiency but not the only one.

Architects use various techniques to reduce the energy requirements of buildings through energy savings.

Sustainable architecture is born by the social and media concerns have generated climate change, the disappearance of natural resources, housing dissatisfaction and seeking a Read the rest of this entry »
