Architectural Mesh Systems - Design Freedom & Functionality
The course explores woven metal fabric as an architecturalmaterial that provides valuable functionality in addition to stunningly unique aesthetics.Included are: the key functions mesh performs; specification steps to require maximumfunctionality; an explanation of how mesh contributes to sustainable designand LEED certification; and a comparison of mesh characteristics and costs vs. otherbuilding materials. The course is suited for all levels of design and project architects andinterior design professionals.
Explore how woven metal fabric (mesh) has expanded its original use as an industrial
product into an architectural product with significant utility.
List four functions that architectural mesh may perform
Understand the three specification steps required to ensure maximum functionality
from mesh and to achieve your design intent
Identify at least three ways in which architectural mesh systems contribute to
principles of sustainable design
Compare and contrast characteristics and costs of other building materials that
architectural mesh may replace in building design
