Uta Pottgiesser; Ulrich Knaack; Holger Strauß (Hg.) Tagungsband zum Symposium 2009 in Detmold. Detmold: Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe - FB1, 2007 205 Seiten

The 5th symposium at Detmold School of Architecture and Inerior Desigen - a department of Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe, University of Applied Sciences in Detmold/Germany, deals with the technical construction of facades illustrated with case studies. Facades for office and comercial purposes are often very specialised and custom-made solutions that differ from standardised products. Planner and executing companies are developing it with simulations and prototypes until an efficient system is found. Creative, interdisciplinary and process-orientated operations are premises for optimised planning and producion processes.
This conference volume also gives an overview about the research activities that take place at the University especially within the reseach focus ConstrucionLab.
