GCSC Seminar: Ryan Smith – “Building systems: ecological design and construction”
September 5, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm MDT
“Building Systems: ecological design and construction” – Ryan Smith, Assoc. Dean for Research, College of Architecture + Planning, U of Utah. 4pm, 210 asb
Building systems is a noun – the built infrastructure systems that constitute our physical world. Building systems is also a verb – the daily design decisions of architects, planners, engineers, contractors and owners often have unintentional consequences on society, environment and economies that have long term effects. This talk will illustrate research and teaching by Professor Smith that seeks for resilient solutions to construction by utilizing the efficiencies and savings associated with low carbon wood production and factory produced buildings.
