The course introduces a conceptual framework for the design of building assemblies, as informed by a clear understanding of construction technologies and of the properties of building materials. Building materials are presented and analyzed with emphasis on their physical and architectural properties, functions, and behavior in manufactured and installed assemblies. The design of building envelopes in various materials is examined as integrated subsystems of components in relation to the forces that shape their composition. The methodology and format of the design of building detailing are discussed, and the roles of the various participants in this process are reviewed.
