Constructive Technologies III
Institute of Architecture and Urbanism
National University of San Martín
In this workshop we work on the close link that exists between construction technique and architectural project, understanding the determining role of construction in defining the architectural form. We incorporate theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of problems of the three building envelopes (1). The watertight enclosure: Protection against bad weather, rain, wind, snow. The thermal envelope: Protection against temperature, limiting the flow of energy through its thickness. The stable envelope: The envelope must be stable offering a consistent and durable structure. Study the problems of structure and envelope in the three particular places of the building: the base, the flight of the building and the roof.
