Place-Making At The Madeleine - H2o Architectes

Publisher Building Books

ISBN 9782956781561

Idea Code 21116

This is the first book of a monographic collection on the projects of h2o architectes. It showcases the construction of a residential building in Paris that features ashlar masonry facades. Requiring neither firing nor the addition of other products, stone material allows a 60% reduction in carbon emissions during the construction phase, in comparison to concrete, and a 35% reduction over a period of 50 years. The architects successfully demonstrate how load-bearing stone represents an economical alternative and lends a higher-quality standard of finish.
