Type: Architecture, Modular House
Status: Concept, 2014
Collaborator: Sebastian Ursuta
Theme, context:The construction technologies currently being implemented around the world consist in a high number of specialized parts and layers which are working together and the trend is towards further sophistication of construction detailing. In our opinion, this direction leads to a high amount of energy required for designing, manufacturing and implementing details. There are important studies showing the paradox of putting more energy into the production of a well insulated building, than the amount that would ever be saved during its lifetime.
Concept:What we are looking to develop, is an alternative concept of construction system. The proposed modular panel would incorporate the characteristics of conventional layers combination but with the advantage of a short and inexpensive manufacturing process followed by a straight forward implementation. Module 01 unites the aluminum structure, efficient and adjustable thickness thermal insulation and waterproofing into one ready-made panel that would further be transported, assembled, re-assembled and finally recycled at low costs.
