Iron & Steel
But Materials are advancing....
and the options are becoming endless
Top Materials Iconic Architects like to use...
Oscar Neimyer + Concrete
Zaha Hadd + Composite
Kengo Kuma + Wood
Frank Gehry + Metal
Alvar Aalto + Brick
SANAA + Glass
Eco Friendly Cost Efficient Materials
six scrapped cars for 2,000 sqft house
75 percent less steel produced
Insulating Concrete Forms
The technology is used in freestanding walls and building blocks
Save 20% over the energy consumed in wood structures
Plant-based Polyurethane Rigid Foam
Foam material that comes from plants
Used for insulation, wind turbine blades, furniture, & Surfboards
Higher R-value than fiberglass or polystyrene
bond well to stucco and plaster
300 medium-sized straw for 2000 sqft house
ultimate insulation panel.. in the future
Vacuum Insulation Panel
how people apply
it is evolving every day..
Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) create a material so strong in both tension and compression Rebar is no longer needed.
lightest materials available
Believed to have R-40 per inch
lowest bulk density of a Solid
"radiant barriers because radiation is the only way they can transfer heat from them to other spatial bodies" - John Straube Building Scientist
a special sweating polymer mat
made of conventional polymer, and PNIPAM
The mat can fill with water when it rains
and when it is hot it shrinks, pushing the water out.
Stronger than steel, weight-for-weight, the super-fine material has the added bonus of being super-flexible
