Solid forms of construction signify permanence and secureness. And durability suggests a long life span Ð and low maintenance costs. An alpine chalet by meck architekten, for example, employs solid wood for everything from the load-bearing components to the tabletop. For the design of a residence with cyclopean stonework in Peru, Longhi Architects takes cues from Incan principles. At a new academic building at a university in Mittweida, Georg Bumiller stacks black prefabricated concrete units. The horizontal layering of the stone building envelope at a priory church in Leipzig by Ansgar and Benedikt Schulz emphasizes the materialÕs sensuous properties. And we also present an exception: the temporary structures at the Expo in Milan.
