Diverse and progressing is what modern architecture is all about. And you might have heard about Metal Architecture too but not sure it’s possibilities in the coming era. Well, to start with, Metal Architecture is going to be the future of modern architecture! Here is why….
Through years, the usage of Metal as both main material and accent material has been increasing. It’s the new trend and it’s happening all around. And what makes it different from other materials? It’s nature that allows us to custom fabricate is what makes it a big deal. It can be folded, stamped, perforated, etched and coated in a lot of ways for a long list of purposes. To put it simple, it’s a creative material when it comes to construction.
Initially Metal was being considered as functional but now it has also become aesthetic in the architecture field. It’s cost efficient as well. Even the colors have been turning heads recently. It sounds strange but the truth is that, the colors are almost unlimited. And sunlight, moonlight and daylight are bringing the looks. The texture and the color and the reflection of light brings the richness on to the metal architectural fractals.
That was about the “good looks” of the metal architecture. Now we shall discuss the performance and its consistency. Let us talk about recyclability and weight of Metal Construction. This also becomes an advantage when convincing a client of using metal as the main material. Coming to the weight, it gains extra points over bricks and concrete. Its lighter nature will make transportation easier and will be costing less. And the taller metals are going to help you build taller and stronger buildings. These metal panels, usually with various perforations, can be fabricated as a well in front of glass curtain walls. This helps the building to meet current energy codes with large expanses of glazing.
The metals have opened a world full of possibilities. Complicated is the new simple. Complicated designs are unlocked with the metal panels and they are just beautiful. The era is going to be glazing in Metal Architecture and you better be catching up with the trend. Because it is worth it!
