In groups of two, select one of the following campus buildings:
Rettaliata Engineering Center.
Carr Memorial Chapel.
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.
During the beginning of Wednesday studio we will be utilizing room 216 to photograph some of the models presented during our last Crown Hall review. Please see your studio professor prior to bringing your model over to room 216.
