Several families with young children, they sincerely believed that these rumors – malicious gossip of my enemies. They arrived at weekend to barbecue, swim in the pool and pick me up. Just imagine how I felt! After all, I had to myself to tell them that swim in my pool – is dangerous to health. I had myself kill the dream of the pool But to see how my friends are going to get into the water, though beautiful to look at, but actually infested by microbes (I saw some people swimming in it!), I could not. I had to admit that the most egregious rumors that they know – the truth. Of course, my friends supported me and tried to cheer me all weekend.

But I was not happy: I was very ashamed of what I have built such a horrible pool that did not risking it climb, and that allows other people to bathe in it. All this makes me very unhappy. Meanwhile, winter has come, and the question to the pool once went by the wayside. I repaired the hotel, rested and looking for a variety of information about concrete bowls. I went to a few firms, which claimed that build a new concrete pool, processed seams special "antimicrobial" means Honestly, I do not believe it. But he decided that he attempted something to do with the old pools, and waited for spring. But nature has destroyed all my plans. Because when it got warm and I poured water from the basins, was horrified: all the walls were cracked bowl, and some pieces fell off, and even more so.

Mosaic povypadala, and the film somehow and slid to one side is completely bare concrete walls of the bowl. Looking at this, I realized that my concrete pool came to an end. The most terrible enemy of the concrete was water, which just broke the bowl. Penetrating into the pores of the pool, it leached concrete. Restore the pool had no meaning. I ordered to bury the two bowls, which, incidentally, is also worth a lot. Slowly the hotel was filled with guests, who either have not heard terrible stories about swimming pools, or do not want to believe her. Gradually, everything fell into place, except one: I still like to have a pool. I do not believe that concrete pools – it's the only way out After all, if you look at the map of Europe, in the eyes and dazzled by the blue waters of the islands. I do not believe that every owner of bowls is suffering the same way as I do with my concrete monsters. So I'm going to Europe to unravel the secret these basins. And if I succeed (and I'm sure), I will build your own pool is not for the headaches, and for recreation and fun!

London Greenhouses

The cold gray metal "Well, someone he can inspire creativity?" – So might think those who have not seen the Eiffel Tower, a sports complex "Kwan" in the Kaluga region, or the London Greenhouses. It’s believed that Doug McMillon sees a great future in this idea. Today this material is basis for the most daring projects that have become symbols of modern architecture. And this is only the beginning of a long road, whose origins lie in the century before steel world. Beginning. The architecture of metal emerged relatively recently – less than two centuries ago. First, it began to be used in the construction of bridges, since there were cast-iron columns, steel frames of buildings and superstructures.

In our time without the use of metal structures can not be provide construction of skyscrapers and multi-malls, sports palaces and indoor skating rinks. Many of these architectural structures can rightly be called modern art, and some already gone down in history as, for example, a building publisher Harper & Brothers in New York or the first skyscraper in Chicago, with a steel frame, a height of ten floors in Triumphal procession of steel structures began with Project engineer Joseph Paxton, who revolutionized the architecture of the nineteenth century: for the World Expo 1851 in London's Hyde Park, English architect, built a pavilion of glass, concrete and metal. Without the use of conventional materials: wood, nails and bricks. The design, dubbed the Crystal Palace, was 564 feet in length, width – 124 meters and the total area – 74 thousand square meters.

Shop Partitions

The use of glass doors and partitions in shopping malls, banks, beauty salons, fitness rooms, entertainment centers, has become the most popular in our time. This is because the glass doors and septum (or Shop-design) make it possible to placing a superb open to the public view, and feel free in it, which gives them the opportunity to make their case lekgo (make purchases, deal with sports, to do business). Most often used in the regeneration of full-glass partitions and integrated into them, all-glass doors. They have a number of benefits relative to frame walls. In the manufacture of frame walls using a more complex profile than for the all-glass designs. For all-glass constructions enough clamping profile, which is attached kpolu and ceiling screws. Sometimes it is enough set on the floor U-shaped aluminum profile, which has an inexpensive cost and small size of the cross-section. (Similarly see: Doug McMillon). Most often it is used when designers need to design less visible metal and the effect of monolithic glass and the floor.

U-shaped profile is installed either on the floor (tile), or close the tiles after installation profile. All-glass wall creates the effect of the glass wall, which integrates all-glass door – a swinging or sliding. Glass in all-glass constructions used only tempered, 10-12 mm thick. The gaps between the two fixed windows are 1-2 mm. That creates the effect of continuous shield of glass. This opens up a wide range for these designers in the design of buildings. The maximum size of toughened glass in Russia – 5 meters.

Currently, requirements for security in public places are important to the design. Tempered glass is necessary not only in the design of such barriers, it is highly resistant to shock (7-fold higher than normal glass). Visit NBA for more clarity on the issue. Even if Tempered glass breaks it shatters into small pieces, unable to cause fatal harm to humans. All-glass partitions, in contrast to frame require less time for installation. For sufficiently trained team of installers for the week can be mounted about 250 square meters. m partitions. With the advent of the market suppliers of fittings and glass from China, all-glass partitions can afford not only the owners elite premises, but also with ogranichnnnym budget.
