The graduate Building Science program at the USC School of Architecture will be adding two additional courses covering building enclosure design and analysis.  USC is well known as the founding home of the Facade Tectonics Institute (which is now based in New York City).

ARCH572 will cover building enclosure physics and analysis, and ARCH672 will cover facade innovation, design, and retrofit.

The survey seminar ARCH472 is already offered, covering the breadth of facade design, fabrication, construction and operation.

Facade design is also key in the building science materials/methods/assembly courses and well integrated into required and elective studios for all students.

I am proud to have been part of the team establishing USC ARCHITECTURE as a leader in building enclosure research and education.
