This publication is the first to give a comprehensive treatment of the subject, providing both a theoretical framework for the use of this type of construction and numerous illustrations of practical examples.The book provides an in-depth study not only of issues such as acoustic and thermal insulation, aerophysics and facade construction, but also of the question of economic viability. Numerous illustrations and plans offer clear and precise insights into the construction of this new development in building design.Up to now double-skin facades have been used mainly for large buildings such as the debis headquarters on Potsdamer Platz in Berlin. They can be used, however, with equal success for smaller buildings as a means of reducing the ingress of external noise and improving ventilation.
