New cardboard architecture e-book

'Cardboard in architecture: research in architectural engineering' is a new e-book now available to GSA staff and students which provides much-needed technical information on using this highly sustainable material in an architectural context. Topics covered include paper felting, the building of a cardboard pavilion and house, structural engineering in paper and cardboard, cardboard partitioning, the mechanical behaviour of cardboard in construction, and the cardboard dome.
