Workshop Schedule – 120 minutes total

In groups of two, select one of the following campus buildings:

  1. Rettaliata Engineering Center.
  2. Wishnick Hall.
  3. Siegel Hall.
  4. Carr Memorial Chapel.
  5. Minerals and Metals Research Building.

What specifically is a building envelope?  For this workshop you must think beyond your traditional understandings, and investigate your selection as a cohesive series of assemblies, some quite obvious, some not.  For instance, a “roof assembly” is considered a part of the building envelope.  In order to be successful during this workshop you will be required to make some assumptions.

Record the envelope of your campus building incorporating elevation (interior & exterior), plan, section, and/or axonometric diagrams.  Exhaustively catalogue the elements and materials that make up each of the envelopes assemblies.  Record the actors and actions of those who experience the envelope.

Review your findings with your sections professor.
