  • Harmonizing with History: Window Solutions for Historically Sensitive Settings

    This learning unit will present common challenges that architects face for projects requiring historically accurate window design or the replacement of historic windows -- or both. Using case studies drawn from U.S. universities, K-12 schools and municipalities with issues of historic sensitivity, the course reviews a number of considerations for both matching historic styles as well as ensuring efficient, modern-day performance. Solutions to the typical window challenges are detailed through the case study projects and their technical resolution. Using real-life case studies, the course will show how to: match existing window profiles and materials; ensure energy-efficient performance; support sustainability goals or LEED certification in new buildings or in existing building upgrades in historic settings. We’ll also examine methods for reducing costs and scheduling needs Take the course.
