FAÇADE DETAILING: A MATERIAL UNDERSTANDING

The subject of this course is the detailed design of building cladding through an understanding of materials and their physical properties. Students will learn what the consequences and opportunities are of their design choices for the exterior cladding of a building at a construction document level of resolution.  There will be an emphasis on sketching details at large scales (often 1:1) by hand to facilitate a proper understanding of everything involved at the interface between the interior and exterior environments and the other necessary building systems. Upon completion of the course the students will have a deep understanding of many different cladding materials and what it takes to remain in command of the entire building process from design concept to constructed work.
