“People think that design is styling. Design is not style. It’s not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts. Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need and beauty to produce something that the world didn’t know it was missing.”
The act of creating and evaluating the architectural spaces in which we spend more than 90% of our lives, is a mixture of design and science. With emerging global challenges of social and environmental equity that arise from resource scarcity and public health emergencies, novel approaches to making buildings more resource-efficient, comfortable, and affordable for all, are critical.
To this end, the Core and Elective courses at the Building Science and Technology sequence provide students with thinking tools and strategies for actualizing their design ideas. The sequence covers a range of topics, from fabrication technologies and innovative healthy assemblies, through supply chain analysis of low-carbon and readily available building materials, to energy modeling and environmental simulations. The sequence not only provides tools for performance analysis, but also crafts new ways of understanding and imagining socially equitable and environmentally sound futures. It supports the current approaches of student-based pedagogy by converging scientific knowledge on building materials, envelope systems, and fabrication technologies, with the complex act of design.
The selection of student projects below represents the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 courses in the Building Science and Technology sequence. The sequence proudly equips the next generation graduates of GSAPP with critical skill sets for the field. This work selection represents the explorative, experimental, yet pragmatic nature of the sequence. It recognizes that grand design should be rationalized and actualized within an interdisciplinary and collaborative discourse.

This course investigates tiling and modular fabrications, from two simultaneous motivations. First, to explore the organizational, experiential, and aesthetic performance of units and repetition in architectural composition. Second, to develop the skill sets involved fabricating the units: through mold-making, casting substances, and other shop-based materials and methods. This course trajectory looks at mold-making craft as an analog to construction logics writ large, efficiencies and economies of modular fabrication, and the development of fabrication systems that apply the lessons of the first trajectory in new and innovative ways.

The architectural history of tension and compression surfaces is the beginning point for the course Tensile/Compression Surfaces in Architecture: Tactile Methods for Architects. Research is conducted through continuous analogous modeling methods. Surfaces are determined through the interactions of forces and materials and a methodology for surface generation is determined. The semester research project proposes a shell structure re-covering of the transept of Santa Maria del Fiore, the Cathedral of Florence, as a modern-day response to Brunelleschi’s famed dome.
Human and environmental health are central to the architectural design process. This course addresses how to overcome the negative health outcomes that are caused by toxics in building products. Students will explore the relationships between building materials, chemical toxicity, and environmental exposures and how they directly impact human health and particularly vulnerable populations.
We will look at current practice to see how leading firms are designing and constructing healthier buildings using these lessons learned to inform design decisions and develop methodologies to select healthier products. Student groups will choose one of eight common building product categories, comparing and analyzing currently available options for health and environmental impacts. Each group will make a recommendation for the healthiest option to be installed on a given project.
The goal is to empower students to transform architectural practice with the knowledge that healthier buildings lead to healthier lives.

Our research looks to critique the use of translucent panels, a material and lighting quality often included in many architectural designs. Although these products are touted for being sustainable due to their daylighting qualities and thermal insulation, we argue that healthier, more affordable, and more sustainable options should be considered for designing low-income housing.
Through the comparison between different recently emerging insulation materials, we analyzed the structure and elements during the lifecycle of these materials and speculated on their impact on human health, both during their production and after they are in use, and identified where the problematic phases are in their life span. Hempcrete is eventually recommended due to its high environmental performance and relatively low affordability. Our study also exposed the issue that these materials have been used at a relatively small scale due to their prevalence and high cost. We look forward to seeing these materials being used more widely and that people would switch their thinking behind material choices.
We began by looking at the different categories of ceramic tiles which consist of Glazed Porcelain tiles (usually made from refined clays and glazed), Mosaic Tiles (usually of porcelain with color), Quarry Tiles (typically unglazed and made from common clays and shale), and Pavers (similar to quarry tiles but thicker and used in heavy wear areas, needs resealing once or twice a year). Tiles can then be glazed or left unglazed. Glazed tiles are nearly impervious to water and thus more resistant to mold, but the grout needs to be resealed as cracks form. Unglazed tiles require a sealant to keep clean and stain-free. There are sealants of different particle sizes which include penetrating sealants that soak into the tile itself and surface sealants that lay a thin coating on top of the ceramic and alter its appearance. One example of this tile sealer has a hazard statement saying it may cause eye damage, skin irritation, and damage fertility or an unborn child.
Studying composite wood products led us to understand health through different scales of the production, installation, and use cycle. A healthy wood product starts with sustainable tree farming and harvesting, sourcing locally-grown wood for a lesser carbon footprint, and the use of as many parts of the tree as is possible.
