Advanced Curtain Walls

Building Science + Technology

Spring 2013

Robert Heintges, instructor

This course offered an intense exposure to the custom curtain wall in a lecture/seminar and technical studio format. It was the intent of the course to provide graduating students with a comprehensive understanding of the technical concepts and specific skills necessary to undertake in the actual practice of designing, detailing, specifying, and administrating the custom curtain wall. Although the course emphasized current and emerging technologies of the curtain wall, discussion of specific technical issues and methodologies focused on those aspects that directly inform contemporary architectural design. Case studies of contemporary examples were used throughout to illustrate the technical content of the course.
