From Forest to Frame: Innovations in Wood Architecture

Presented by Uli Dangel of the UT School of Architecture
Recent technological innovations in engineered wood products and building systems have enabled the construction of tall, multi-story structures, turning buildings into carbon sinks rather than sources for CO2 emissions. This session presents compelling arguments for the increased use of wood as a renewable and sustainable building material.

Evolution of Water-Resistive and Air Barriers in Commercial Building Envelope Construction

This program’s goal is to inform the design community of the evolutionary process of water and air barriers in commercial construction since their inception while examining the benefits and purposes of each method. In addition, the program will look extensively at newly-developed methods of incorporating these barriers with the exterior sheathing to for an integrated system.
