Southeast

Breaking

Mold

June 24, 2021

6 AIA HSW CEUs

PRESENTED BY

This June The Architect's Newspaper will present Facades+ Southeast: Breaking the Georgian Mold. The conference, our first of the summer, is grounded in the city of Atlanta, and is co-chaired by HKS Director of Commercial, Atlanta, Shelby Morris. Although the Peach State will feature prominently within the program, the conference’s three panels will be relevant for the entire Southeast, and beyond. The topics respond to architecture’s increasing responsibility to address environmental and cladding conditions, all while maintaining aesthetic standards for both the client and general public. In particular, the panels will hone in on construction related to the exponentially expanding tech scene in Atlanta, innovative multi-material enclosures, and operable windows for facades. Attendees will be provided the opportunity to converse directly with the panelists throughout the day.

In the past two months, the tech behemoths Airbnb and Microsoft announced substantial expansions in the city of Atlanta. They are not alone, and it is no coincidence that the city continues to grow as an East Coast tech hub with an abundant skilled workforce and economic incentives. Companies are treating such expansions as flagships and are investing heavily in the facades of the new developments to establish an area-wide presence. This panel will examine how architects can harness the incredible potential of this trend and gear their buildings to the specifications of such particular clients.

The proliferation of advanced engineering and fabrication techniques is pushing the limits of facade design, specifically that of multi-material enclosures. This panel will feature Niel Prunier and Manzer Mirkar from HKS, and Dave Powell and Chris Davis from Hastings Architecture, who will explore the unique technical challenges and methods for designing and constructing large scale projects that use multiple cladding techniques or multiple interfaces. The projects they will present, Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles and the Bridge Building in Nashville, offer an opportunity to examine these techniques at different scales and place them in conversation. Such projects are increasingly prescient today with new standards for contemporary outdoor capacity demands and the call for materiality to speak to its contextual site.

It is no secret that architects and engineers often fail to see eye-to-eye, and nowhere is this potentially more pronounced than the design of operable windows for high-rise buildings. That dichotomy stems from mechanical engineers seeking, you guessed it, mechanical solutions; while architects emphasize the phycological and aesthetic benefits of operable wall systems. In the hot and muggy South, this issue takes further importance, and this panel will explore the successful design and installation of operable systems and their integration with smart electrochromic glass.

  • Credit type: 1 HSW AIA
  • Provider: STI Firestop
  • Presenter: Eric Lacroix

This course is designed to eliminate the confusion associated with the basics of perimeter fire containment systems. Fully understanding the role and value of tested perimeter fire barrier systems in today’s ever-changing and complex designs cannot be overstated and understanding the unique challenges of these designs present are critical in the design phase to eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements prior to construction.

Learning Objectives
  • Fully understand the basics of curtain walls and how they perform in a fire
  • North America regarding the requirements for perimeter fire barrier systems
  • Fully understand the impact of the ASTM E 2307 test standard on actual test that have been run. This easily documents the impact and severity of the new code requirement.
  • Design for success: Understanding the basics of all non backpan perimeter fire containment tested system
  • To make understanding of curtain wall basics fun and easily understood
