complicated concrete structures

Today i drove past the rest station of "Deitingen Süd"

(at a swiss motorway) and pointed out the filigrane concrete roof structure to show my wife what really was avantgarde in the 1950s. Swiss architect Heinz Isler made this design his signature in the second half of the last century. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinz_Isler

Funny enough, once back in office i receive an invite to this interesting blog.

I cant wait to see their ideas being built...
Come back soon to see some images of their work.


will be a challenge for www.emplica.com to design a repair kit for that kind of formwork.

  1. concrete repair is tough stuff, but even concrete cracks and crumbles. Eventually, nature has her way. Moisture and temperature extremes make their presence known through damage to concrete floors, walks and structures. Fortunately, you can make simple concrete repair's yourself. concrete repair requires few tools and no special skills, but it does require a strong back.
