Architect and developer Alloy partnered with design studio Taller KEN to unveil Bright Stripes, an installation in Downtown Brooklyn that aims to enliven a construction site with simple artistic means.
Morphogenesis Lab, a team specialized in interactive architectural systems, developed Wisteria, an emotive intelligent installation that performs concurrent responses to people’s emotions based on biological and neurological data.
Displaced, cracked, and out-of-plane brick units were observed at the brick façade of a parking garage in a Midwestern city. The façade of the garage consisted of brick masonry veneer installed over a concrete masonry unit (CMU) backup wall. Openings made during an investigation revealed light-gauge, corrugated brick ties connected the brick veneer to the CMU back-up wall and concrete structure of the garage.
As noted in previous columns, successful long-term performance for repointing mortar joints in an existing masonry structure requires the development of an appropriate mortar mix, proper installation, and correct designation of the type and extent of work required.
When properly specified and executed, the preconstruction performance mockup of an enclosure assembly can offer several benefits to any project. Most notably, the mockup provides project teams the opportunity to observe, evaluate, and refine the design, fabrication, and installation sequencing of the enclosure assemblies and corresponding interface conditions.
