Moisture Mitigation with Rainscreen Technologies (Print Course)

There is no such thing as a water-tight structure. Because water takes the path of least resistance, it will find even the smallest opening in the building envelope, allowing moisture to enter the wall system, no matter how many layers of protection are provided. Therefore, in addition to keeping water out with various weather resistive barriers (WRB), systems must be put in place to allow water to exit the envelope once it inevitably does get in.

Rethinking Wood as a Material of Choice: Costs Less, Delivers More (Print Course)

Designers today are finding new possibilities in one of the oldest building materials on earth. Wood has always been valued for its beauty, abundance and practicality, but many of wood’s inherent characteristics are rising to very current challenges. Wood’s traditional values and newest technologies meet in the projects presented in this course, illustrating the advantages of wood to in four areas: cost-effectiveness in a wide range of projects; adaptability for use in challenging, visionary new designs; lower environmental costs throughout its life cycle, from its source in renewable, carefully managed forests, through an energy-efficient service life, and often on to a new, recycled and reimagined use; and a unique human-nature connection that has always been intuitive, but is now being documented in research.
