Early applications of reinforced concrete in “Modern Architecture”: Europe and UK

Branka Dimitrijevic

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    The research was funded by the “Call for Ideas” – Internationalisation Programmes – the first Triennial Programme for the Region of Basilicata/University, Italy. Along with a succinct overview of early use of iron and concrete in architecture in the UK and Scotland, the research provided examples of selected tall buildings on small plots designed in Glasgow at the end of 19th century and the Lion Chambers built in 1907 to highlight the innovative architectural design of the latter in comparison to its predecessors, achieved through the use of reinforced concrete for the building structure and envelope (external walls and roof). The research also included a previously unpublished photograph of the original interior, traced in archives, that contributes to better understanding of the original (now lost) interior design and will contribute to an adequate future restoration of the building interior.
