Abstract

Different approaches, construction systems and use for two case studies that share the same ambition and nature of being prestigious projects, asked to become key elements in the urban texture, in which the facades play a key role to ensure reaching aesthetic and performance objectives. Manhattan Center is a refurbishment project which takes us through the various phases of a façade project, from the concept of façade systems and identification of performance requirements to the most advanced steps related to the detailed design, the realization and then mock-up and testing, construction and installation. Brighton University offers an example of façades made using dry construction technology with a strong prefabrication requirement applied to a complex of tall buildings characterized by a complex geometry. Architectural requirements, such as chromatic variations along the vertical elevation of the building and the need to use traditional materials such as clay and terracotta, determine specific construction solutions that are also dictated by the ability of the market to respond to these personalized requests.
