Architectural Technologist – Shaped Timber Shingles

Shapes Timber Shingle

I saw this detail whilst on my trip to Norway, a shaped timber Shingle that is so pleasing to the eye. Look at the over all effect on the remaining photos on my Flickr account It obeys all the basic rules for a pitched roof tile, covering the underlying layers with the small pointy bits top and bottom. I have no idea what timber was used, but it looks reasonably old yet the timbers have not warped or shrunk out of place.

The CPD here links into both Pitched roofing and innovation, plus a little timber use, Nice

Architectural Technologist – CIAT – AT Magazine

CIAT AT Magazine June 2011

You have heard me many time promote the excelence of the CIAT AT magazine, well, hang onto your seat, I’m at it again, The current issue May-June is available on the CIAT site and for those members who have recieved it and not yet read it, shame on you.

This months edition again excells in information for the CIAT Architectural Technologist, from the opening letter from Barry Le Beuvant to the very excellent article on Home Technology, although some what an advert for the Home Technology event at Excel.

But its the very excelent article by Holly Willbourn on CPD that I think your attention should be pointed, rather strongly in my view. Deciding on just what to study and when, and perhaps how is not always on the tip of every ones thought process, I might say that CPD  in most people is left to the people like me who organise the office CPD events, so reading Holly’s excellent article might just stir you into planning some form of path, to achieving your 35 hours

Plus as we all struggle to find work or employers, the article on page 25 promoting the stars of the future is just great Alicia Munday is only 14 yet her design is great, But there is loads more on tech and legal, download it and keep current.
