On August 22, the 10th “Skills achieve the architectural beauty” summit forum was held in Shaoxing, a Jiangnan watery town and a famous cultural city. The forum was rich and colorful, including academic exchanges, award ceremonies, case exhibitions, enterprise exhibitions, etc. Focusing on construction industry hotspot, Cui Kai, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering and honorary President / chief architect of China architectural design and research Group, Li Xinggang, master of National Engineering Exploration and Design Association and chief architect of China architectural design and research Group, Dong Danshen, chairman of Zhejiang university the architectural design and research institute of Zhejiang university and chief architect, and other 18 outstanding architects, scholars, heads of material production enterprises with rich practical experience shared and discussed the relation between skills and buildings.

Progress in technology brings about material change

As the representative of the co-organizer of the forum, Li Chunchao, the marketing director of NorthGlass, made a wonderful speech with the theme of “Design Materials Together · Create a Better Life”. He told the story between NorthGlass and Apple, in which the challenges made NorthGlass recognize the difference between art glass and architectural glass, and what is high-end glass, how to achieve humanized product design, low carbon construction, life cycle longevity, and the difficult process of making complex curved curtain wall glass and architectural bent tempered glass with a minimum radius of 175mm for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and the difficulty of lighting up the ice ribbon. He said that the successful completion of each breakthrough project cannot leave the owners’ support, designers’ creation and perfect combination of three parties, design and materials together, the birth of innovative technology, and 24 meters super large glass constantly refresh NorthGlass records, then the “bird's nest” National Stadium, Beijing Daxing International Airport, China National Convention CenterⅡ, Beijing Municipal Administrative Center Library, Chinese Culture & Cuisine Palace at EXPO 2020 Dubai, Tokyo first building TAP, Abu Dhabi International Airport were made from paper to the landmarks. Over the past three years of COVID-19, NorthGlass has also realized that only by refining its internal skills, accelerating innovation and adhering to the track of high-quality development can it better spread Chinese design, Chinese products and Chinese culture to the world.

Can you imagine a “brick” floating on the water? During the forum, the organizer also organized an enterprise exhibition, and a total of more than 10 enterprises in building materials, construction field with the latest products and technology appeared at the exhibition. Among them, NorthGlass brought a new type of wall material called “Lightweight microcrystalline stone”, which use wind sand, tailings, coal gangue and other silicon based solid waste as the main raw material, it is light with high strength, anti-water and fire, thermal insulation, sound insulation, corrosion resistance, outstanding anti-weathering effect.

Lightweight microcrystalline stone: veneer integration, lightweight and high strength

The surface layer of lightweight microcrystalline stone and the honeycomb structure are sintering at high temperature. One product integrates the excellent properties of the two materials simultaneously. The compressive strength with same density is more than 30% of foam ceramics, the folding strength is more than 50%; the wall thickness is only 1 / 5 of the brick or concrete wall with the same insulation effect, and the installation and construction are convenient, modular design can make it flexibly applied to prefabricated buildings, so that the traditional wall is simplified.

In addition, the whole process of “lightweight microcrystalline stone” from raw materials, production, application to recycling perfectly reflects “green”, contributing to the construction of “waste-free city” and the realization of the “double-carbon” goal. According to the characteristics and application scenarios of lightweight microcrystalline stone, it also designed and developed the whole production and processing line constructed from the raw material-forming-processing-integrated wall. The process equipment technology integrates multi-industry and multidisciplinary comprehensive technology elements, realizing the intelligent, green, and high-quality production mode.

“Skills achieve the architectural beauty” summit forum has been successfully held nine times since 2012 in Shanghai, Beijing, Xuzhou, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Changsha and other places, and widely recognized by the industry. It not only provides the communication stage for architects, designers, also opens a window for building materials production companies, it brings infinite possibilities for the future more green, environmental protection, beautiful buildings.
