The new trend in architecture – polycarbonate

A new trend in modern architecture is catching on: It’s about the polycarbonate sheets. Well-known architects and construction companies are currently working on it. Family houses, industrial buildings and garden facilities can be constructed entirely from this material. Polycarbonate sheets are even used in the field of monument protection.

Polycarbonate sheets are being used more and more in everyday life. They show similar qualities as the glass, but have many advantages over this. They withstand the blows of heavy objects. Intentional or accidental damage is more difficult. Polycarbonate sheets are about 200 times more durable. They allow 80% of the light and still offer privacy protection. Therefore, some buildings can be completely built from it. They can withstand a wide variety of climatic conditions and their manufacturers promise endurance at temperatures from minus 10 to plus 40 degrees C..

 The Internet magazine Dezeen has published a fascinating overview and we are happy to provide the information for you in German.

The Leff Art Studio in the USA

The next architectural work was designed and built by the company TBD. The polycarbonate sheets were used to build a secluded private home filled with natural light. After the lights are switched on in the evening, the building lights up and thus illuminates the entire area. You don’t think that’s a great approach that can mean more security in our cities when it comes to saving costs for the communities?

It is a private home that is filled with natural light
