Together, we’ll take a tour of 20th century architectural history to explore one of the most defining technological developments of our time: Curtain Wall. In charting the evolution of non-structural glazed facades, we’ll explore materials science, product life-cycles, manufacturing processes, and how we can use this knowledge to improve our built environment. This understanding of the Past and Present will ultimately help us to predict the Future... by shaping it.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
- Compare early 20th century curtain wall technology with the latest 21st century technology
- Explain thermal bridging and its importance in 21st century building envelope design
- Identify the psychosocial value of transparent facades
- Describe Embodied Carbon (EC) impacts of curtain wall and related manufacturing processes
