Bizarre Buildings Part 1 - Animal Crackers

Bizarre Buildings Part 1 - Animal Crackers

Animal shaped buildings are nothing new - take the Sphinx for example.聽 聽I come across new zoomorphic architecture (buildings made to look like animals) regularly and decided to put together a list of my favourites.Lucy the Elephant is a six...

Franci馃悵Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador - the basket case building was on my list of buildings to add to my list of my bizarre buildings series. Perhaps I should do one on endangered odd buildings now!

Thank you, Debasish for reading (and sharing, too). I also found the post about ethics in construction very relevant. It's a timely topic applicable not only to civil engineering.

Ah, Lada, now I understand even better. The WCC is not a significant structural contributor, but essential a surfacing layer and fire-spread resistant barrier. The high admisture of wood sawdust not only lightens the material but probably helps to minimize differential in coefficients of thermal expansion re the GLULAM and surfacing later. BTW, my share of your buzz on LinkedIn has already racked up nearly 1,400 views and significant engagement. Not bad at all in comparison to the reaction here -- especially when you factor in, what I call, the Reality Conversion Coefficient. Cheers!

Sorry for the late response. I'm in the process of relocation. My office is moving to a different location in the city, and there is a lot of work to do. Phil, all such research activities are focused on the ecological aspects and finding alternatives to concrete. This method significantly reduces the quantity of concrete. The image in the post shows the testing process of the specimen consisting of glulam beams on the bottom and the WCC layer over. Also, very interesting is how two different materials are connected together to ensure distribution of loads but also a solid connection between WCC and timber. Placing WCC as the secondary (non-structural) layer met all requirements for fire resistance, acoustic and thermal insulation. As for the lack of the interest, I have nothing more to say. If I had a time, I'd share this myself with my community on LI. Thanks for doing so.
