This course has four learning objectives:
- Identify and recognize the characteristics of architectural castings as an alternative to traditional concrete, stone, and gypsum materials.
- Investigate the design potential and innovative opportunities to incorporate architectural castings made from GRG, GFRC, FRP, and cast stone.
- Assess the functional contributions of architectural castings as they contribute to green and sustainable design.
- Formulate an assessment of the relevant cost saving considerations when specifying and designing with architectural castings.
