At a fundamental level, how is the wall connected to the roof and how does the wall meet the floor? And how does a cladding membrane join the structure? How do we achieve a satisfactory junction between solid and void, opaque and transparent elements within the building’s ‘skin’? The outcome of all of these questions will have a powerful effect upon the building’s appearance and therefore upon how we ‘read’ the building. We have already discussed how a clear ‘diagram’ involving the functional plan and structural expression allows us to ‘read’ and assimilate a building’s organisation.

Although this represents an over-simplification, nevertheless, there are several modernist icons which clearly express a similar range of structural forms apparently facilitated by a burgeoning technology. 3). 1 Framed form. 3 Planar form.

Whereas these examples demonstrate an adherence to one formal type, most buildings embody all three simultaneously. 7). 4 Mies van der Rhe, Farnsworth House, Plano, Illinois, 1950.

Ding’s performance and decisions regarding lightweight versus heavyweight, or permeable versus impermeable which applied to the roof likewise need to be considered. But in the case of walls these decisions assume a greater degree of complexity for, much more than roofs, walls tend to be punctuated by openings to provide access, daylighting, views out, or ventilation, all of which have to be accommodated within the strategy for construction. Should traditional loadbearing structure be employed, then the wall membrane will be ‘heavy’ and most likely permeable.
