By H. Zijlstra

Know-how supplied the writer of this e-book with the muse to boost a extra finished examine solution to investigate constructions: Analysing structures from Context to element in time: ABCD examine strategy. know-how, at educational point, can be thought of within the research of a development. during this publication the focal point is on building engineering, the learn of the necessities linked to developing constructions. offering info on perform is a key point in building engineering, that's a studying method. alterations are made in the course of the lifetime of a development and they would be made otherwise if the heritage and technical points of the development have been studied in better element. either upkeep and alterations require us to appreciate the development involved. In essence, a development may be defined intimately utilizing the ABCD study process. event received with different structures can result in greater thought of options while designing and construction new structures or intervening in present structures. we will be able to realize layers the place adjustments could have ended in interventions in what existed at one time. The ABCD study technique is an tool to teach us how adjustments occurred and what the unique techniques for the development have been. we need to examine the background of the layout and development of a development to distil this essence.

But the discussions were not really steered, despite the impact of personalities such as Molière, Rietveld, Merkelbach and Van Embden. ’ Consequently, the discussions soon became less effective. However, we did get to know each other personally, especially the many young people. 121 Van Tijen saw a decline in the quality of residential building projects and he accused architects of a lack of both the drive to learn and an urge to obtain more knowledge: Designers too, still pick up too little of the available knowledge.

He derives it fromIJƿǒnjdž, similar to the concept ‘technology’, to eventually arrive at a comparison between ‘tectonic’ and ‘atectonic’. 75 Anne Beim (1964) developed the concept ‘tectonic’ further in her study Tectonic Visions in Architecture.
