The New York Chapter AIA COTE/ ASHRAE Integration Series for 2012 focuses on design and technical issues related to the building enclosure.
In our third session of the 2012 Integration Series, we will explore some of the challenges of a sustainable façade renovation of a modernist building. Issues of historic preservation are considered alongside energy conservation, occupant comfort, project phasing, and previous renovations.
Case studies include Mies van der Rohe’s IIT’s Crown Hall and Yale's Rudolph Hall (Art and Architecture building). Project team members will present the analysis and decision-making process guiding the renovation.
• When renovating a modernist building enclosure and considering many aspirations (historic, sustainable, functional), where are there synergies and conflicts?
• What research or analysis informed design decisions?
• How do we deal with buildings that have been renovated once already, often without less regard for historic renovation principles?
• How does the enclosure renovation time frame affect the project, deliverables, or team involvement?
• Have the enclosure’s sustainability features changed over time (changed, added, or restored)?
