Young designers and architects studying "the 13th element" Breaking news 23.03.2020 at 10:49

Aluminium – the 13th element of the periodic table – is today one of the world's most popular building materials: it is lightweight, durable, eco-friendly, durable, does not burn and retains its properties during processing. The best domestic practice for the treatment of aluminium and the unique qualities of its alloys presented to future architects and designers in the framework of the scientific-practical seminar "All about aluminium. Architecture, construction, design" at the Central House of architect. The event was organized by the Aluminum Association, the Union of architects of Russia, Institute of lightweight materials and technologies (ILIT).

Experts told the students MGHPA them. S. G. Stroganov and the Institute of business and design about the unique characteristics of the item No. 13, which allows the use of aluminium in modern architecture for the construction of buildings and infrastructure facilities, as well as the finishing material, creating the illusion of wood, stone, mirror or mimic a variety of metals: steel, copper, brass, bronze.

Over the past 30 years, the use of aluminum products in the world increased more than threefold in 2019 exceeded 90 million tons. In the last 5 years the growth rate of 5-7% annually, and in countries such as India, China exceeded 9%. The Russian market accounts for just over 1.5% of the total global volume of use of aluminum products. Talking about the trends and prospects of the aluminum industry, Snezana ravliuc, an expert of the Aluminum Association's market research, said: "In today's world the use of aluminum and aluminum alloys is primarily due to the development of the most technologically advanced industries: automotive, aviation, robotics and electronics... in addition, a variety of properties of various aluminum alloys creates almost limitless possibilities for its use."

the Growth of demand for aluminum, according to experts, is largely due to the compliance of its properties the requirements for modern materials. The popularity of aluminium consumers contribute to current trends in environmental, economic, resource and energy efficiency.

Environmental friendliness. Aluminium can be recycled repeatedly without losing its consumer properties and volume. The use of aluminum structures reduce the environmental load on the Foundation in building structures, and the durability of aluminium and its high corrosion resistance eliminates the need for additional processing and regular updates.

the Efficiency of aluminium is expressed primarily in its effectiveness. The combination of lightness and strength of aluminium makes it possible to use significantly smaller volumes compared to other materials, and high corrosion resistance and durability of the aluminum construction saves costs of operation throughout the life cycle.

the Presence of aluminium in architecture and construction projects not only strengthens their technical and operational benefits, but also contributes to a project's unique aesthetics, the iconic component. "If you don't know, something to be proud of in our country – just look at the complex construction engineering solutions with the use of aluminium in Moscow and large Russian cities – charge, "Lakhta Center", Technopark "SKOLKOVO" and others. Aluminium today is the mainstream of engineering" – commented on the role of aluminium in contemporary building and architecture, one of the participants of the seminar.

the Design and architectural decisions in most construction projects today are implemented with the use of aluminum. Within AlumForum 2020 will be held the contest "Aluminium in architecture" – the only in Russia review of planned and implemented projects using aluminum. During the forum also will be held a competition of Aluminium Design, which will feature interior design, furniture, lamps, small architectural forms of Russian and foreign designers with the use of aluminium.
