    Wednesday Shadow Visit Experience:
    2:00 pm - 4:45 pm: ARCH 535 - Construction Materials & Assemblies II
    This continuation of Construction Materials and Assemblies I provides students with the awareness and understanding necessary for the selection of materials, components and assemblies for the design and construction of buildings. The course explores traditional and non-traditional building techniques, methods and materials selection with particular emphasis on steel, concrete, and glass in relation to fabrication and assembly methods, historical influences, function, sustainability, and architectural expression. Issues of materials' embodied energy as well as recyclability and disassembly are also considered. The course also dedicates a substantial portion of its time to the examination of building envelope concepts as the locus of design resolution between technical and architectural design realms. Detailing issue includes optimization of the building's thermal performance.
