Product description

Synopsis

Fiber cement - primarily known by the brand name Eternit in the German-speaking world - has been enjoying a renaissance for a decade. Structures by Gunter Behnisch, Bearth & Deplazes, Coop Himmelblau, MVRDV, Morphosis, and many others exploit its tremendous formal and chromatic versatility at a time when the free use of form and color is a highly prized commodity in architecture. Also, the new generation of fiber cement slabs has air and water permeability characteristics that make it unrivaled for certain purposes. In ever expanding realms of home and workplace, it is also used for individual aesthetic design (e.g. interior house walls, exhibition architecture, and functional and industrial structures). This book introduces the technology of fiber cement and its material and architectural history and presents more than twenty outstanding new and recent structures from Europe and the United States, practically organized by principal applications - roof, interior construction, and object design.
