Searching for a dry constructed facade main wall (096)

An exciting challenge by Mecanotubo.

Building construction in the second half of the twentieth century, up to the start of the twenty-first century in Spain due to restrictions on inventiveness imposed by regulations, is characterized by a proliferation of systems for the blind area of façade. All of them are supported as systems by the industry and tend to be prefabricated, dry assembled and fixed.

Mecanotubo took on this challenge with several very stimulating experiences that went no further. Maybe it was not the time or place, but the proposals are unquestionably interesting conceptually and technologically. Just have a look to the one shown here: an evolution of the system tested in Piera.
