Change is inevitable, and that holds true for the dynamic nature of architecture. Buildings move over time, and all the elements that touch the building are in movement, too — air, sun, earth, fire, water, and people. Structural engineers study it. Architects plan for it. Construction Specialties is taking it head on leading first with education. The Mastering Movement™ Academy looks at the range of environmental events that impact buildings and the variety of issues buildings deal with in any given environment. From louvers that provide for ventilation, light, and design enhancements to modular stair systems and climate-related equity issues across the globe, we will explore the parameters-based building product engineering that solves these building movement issues, all while supporting the desired design aesthetic and building function.
