    DesignED EP. 161 – Gene Faulkner

    DesignED EP. 161 – Gene Faulkner

    Greg Faulkner joins the podcast to discuss their approach to incorporating existing elements into design. Greg Faulkner formed Faulkner Architects in 1998 to pursue the making of highly crafted, site sensitive places. With a strong commitment to the quality of every project, Faulkner’s portfolio is an extensive collection of innovative and environmentally sensitive homes. This podcast explores the path Faulkner takes to be sensitive to client concerns while also incorporating the dreams and goals of the client. Respect and reputation allow Faulkner to enjoy repeat projects for clients that make up a third of the work. Evolution of the design through construction is an integral part of the process. From Ottawa to Noe Valley, Faulkner’s work speaks for itself. Learning Objectives:* Describe the overall philosophy that Faulkner follows to incorporate design with existing elements.* Explain the how building with fireproof and fire-resistant materials is part Faulkner’s “common sense” approach to resilient design.* Discuss the project goals and challenges associated with achieving Net Zero Energy status of the Miner Road Project.* List the challenges associated with the design and construction of Net Zero Energy homes, and how Faulkner successfully completed the Miner Road Project. Credits: 0.5 AIA LU/HSWSpeaker: Aaron Prinz

    Achieving Acoustic Excellence Design Strategies that Effect STC Ratings

    Achieving Acoustic Excellence Design Strategies that Effect STC Ratings

    In contemporary building design, the significance of sound control has never been more pronounced. A fundamental grasp of acoustical terminology and the principles of sound transmission is crucial for designing wall partitions to align with project specific performance goals adhere to code requirements and align with industry standards. This podcast, hosted by Alex Bachrach, welcomes Scott Hughes CSI, CDT, the Atlantic and northeast region construction design manager for National Gypsum Company, as well as Chad Goodman, FCSI, CDT, CCPR, and Lead Green Associate, and the Central and Midwest Region Construction Design Manager for National Gypsum Company. This conversation covers the basics managing and controlling sound through thoughtful partition design and explores key concepts and strategies for improving a walls sound transmission class (STC) rating. Learning Objectives:1.    Examine key acoustical concepts and terminology such as sound transmission class STC, decibels, Hertz, and frequency.2.    Explore how sound is transmitted through wall partitions.3.    Review code requirements and industry guidelines for sound transmission between adjacent spaces4.    Learn 6 concepts that can influence the STC rating of a wall assembly.5.    Investigate product options and formulate design strategies to achieve STC performance criteria. Credits: 1 AIA LU/HSWSpeaker: Alex Bachrach

    DesignED EP. 158 – Arlene Ellwood and Todd Ferry

    DesignED EP. 158 – Arlene Ellwood and Todd Ferry

    This podcast examines solutions to address the issue of homelessness in the urban environment. Todd Ferry, an architect and senior research associate at Portland State University’s Center for Public Interest Design, discusses building communities in Portland, Ore. Ferry was part of creating Dignity Village in 2004, a self-governed encampment, which has evolved over several years to a community of tiny homes built by residents and Americorps volunteers. Arlene Ellwood is the Architectural Design Coordinator at Mobile Loaves & Fishes, which operates Community First! Village, a 51-acre permanent location. Community First is poised to grow to nearly 2,000 homes across three locations, which would make it by far the nation’s largest project of this kind, big enough to permanently house about half of Austin’s chronically homeless population. Learning Objectives:* Describe the root causes of homelessness.* Explain the importance of architects physically visiting potential design sites.* Discuss the project goals and challenges associated with the Community First! Village.* Explain how community, autonomy, and security help create successful strategies for homeless encampments. Credits: 0.5 AIA LU/HSWSpeaker: Aaron Prinz
