GKD-USA’s newest CEU is an informative and engaging discussion that offers insights into the latest, most innovative applications of architectural metal mesh. The on-demand course, which was recorded during a live webinar event, is worth AIA continuing education credit, 1LU/HSW.
Architectural metal fabric is a versatile interior and exterior material used to create dynamic and functional façades, balustrades, ceilings, and screening for libraries, academic buildings, parking garages, stadiums, and other public and commercial buildings.
Architects who complete this course will establish expertise in metal fabrics for interior and exterior applications, including the performance benefits of semi-permeable metal membranes spanning safety, security, solar management, and sustainability. An exploration of coatings and graphics technologies illustrates how to use metal fabrics in establishing unique branding or a remarkable visual signature for a building.
Finally, several case studies coach architects to spot ideal exterior and interior applications for metal fabric. The projects illustrate exemplary specifications and installations, and how the material helps achieve top building performance.
