Resulta interesante pararnos a reflexionar sobre cual es y ha sido estos últimos años el papel en la arquitectura del recurso estructural más recurrente en aeronáutica: el voladizo.

Una de les tècniques de la construcció més recorrents durant algunes dècades a España, va ser el que es coneix com a 'envanets de sostremort', que servia per donar inclinació a les cobertes de la gran majoría de construccions.

Yesterday we were talking about 'smart cities - Barcelona' with our friends from the FINEP, in Rio de Janeiro. The event started with a review of the Barcelona case in which we offered a big picture of what is happening in the catalan capital, a successful case taken as an example for cities aiming to become 'smarter'. Our experience in the implementation of smart solutions was in the Barbastro Urban De...
