Balancing Lighting Needs (from Provider K356)

Lighting design can be a daunting process because it requires balancing conflicting needs. The installation, maintenance, aesthetics, and budget must all be considered before selecting the most appropriate lighting fixture. This course offers a step-by-step process to identify and prioritize your needs, and achieve your desired design.

Beautiful and Sustainable Buildings

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course explores a selection of specific materials and systems that can help architects create buildings designed to do a better job contributing to occupant health and comfort through improved indoor air quality, improved daylight harvesting, increased relative available space within a structure, and through meeting code-mandated thermal requirements.

Building Enclosure Design: Fundamentals, Components and Assemblies

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

Building enclosures are responsible for controlling heat flow, air flow, vapor flow and a number of other elements. Through a combination of building science fundamentals and current research, this presentation will explore design considerations associated with wood-frame building enclosures and the role of control layers. Discussion will focus on best practices for designing durable, energy-efficient enclosures using traditional light wood-frame construction.
