Die Renaissance leichter Betone in der Archite (DE)


This German article highlights how lightweight concrete combines lightness, strength, and thermal insulation. Due to its low bulk density and the resulting low weight, concrete made with expanded clay can be used in a variety of building applications, with the added bonus of resistance to extreme weather conditions, and an overall excellent level of insulation. The high quality and design of buildings made of lightweight concrete with expanded clay is shown through numerous examples, including private houses, but also public and industrial buildings such as the Land- und Amtsgericht in Frankfurt / Oder by Bumiller & Junkers Architekten.
