The aluminium element was discovered 200 years ago. After an initial period of technological development, aluminium alloys were used in many structural applications. Aluminium is the second most widely specified metal in building after steel, and is used in all sectors from commercial building to domestic dwelling.
Aluminium, while it has a relatively high initial energy cost, offers unparalleled manufacturing flexibility, the broadest ranges of finishes, an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, unlimited recyclables and has a far better environmental profile than many specifiers believe. Above all, it offers architects the most elegant and satisfying design solutions.
For many contemporary designers there is simply no alternative to aluminium – the form dictates the material and the material facilitates the form. This fact alone will ensure the continued growth of Aluminium in construction.
