IMMERSION - Vermont Masters Class
Sunday, August 03, 2014 8:00:00 AM
The format for the course will be an mixture of tours, site visits, studio work, lectures and critique. Students and tutors will live and work on-site for the week, sleeping, meeting and eating in the farmhouse and barn.

Over the course of the week, students will work to develop a response to an architectural problem. Significant time will be spent exploring, drawing, and developing an understanding of the context for the project. Response will be developed in model and graphic form, with an emphasis on analog representation methods. The week will culminate in a formal presentation and critique of the work.

It promises to be an equally rewarding and challenging experience in a truly unforgettable setting.

This year’s studio will be held at the Woodstock farm house and barn by Rick Joy Architects in Wooodstock, Vermont. The project was select by Architectural Record for its 2010 Record Houses Issue, and has been featured in numerous other publications.

The house is sited at the base of a hill next to a spring-fed pond which forms the center of family activiy on the 210-acre homestead. Woodstock displays so much of what makes this part of new england unique, with the rollling hills and everchanging forest backdrop serving as a constant marker of place and time. This will be our laboratory and canvas for the workshop.

The program will be led by Immersion staff and three award winning architects: Rick Joy, Tom Kundig and Marlon Blackwell.

AIA Colorado West (Aspen) CE Seminar: Skins
Friday, August 22, 2014 1:00:00 PM

AIA Colorado West invites all of its members to attend a seminar about façades presented by Studio NYL|The SKINS Group. This program will take place on Friday, Aug. 22, from 1 - 4 p.m., at Colorado Mountain College in the Art Gallery, Room 126 (0255 Sage Way, Aspen, CO 81611) preceding the gala.

High-Performance Façades – Deviation from the Norm
This presentation will explore the multiple stakeholders and variables affecting achievement of high-performance envelopes. The discussion will cover various conventional and emerging materials and assemblies. Moreover, the conversation will also speak to how the appropriateness of such assemblies are evaluated and implemented towards the goal of creating a high-performance façade.

God is in the DETAILS: A Detailed Case Study Review of Non-Traditional Facade Detailing
The session is a case study driven review of facade details and will review the atypical conditions that do not occur in the idealized conditions. The course is crucial to those designing the enclosure of buildings that do not fit the mold of a common box. The case studies will include both transparent and opaque facade systems and the junction of the transparent and opaque assemblies, where most facade failures occur. Important topics will include continuous insulation, mitigation of thermal bridges, condensation, waterproofing and structure.

Attendees will receive 3.0 HSW AIA continuing education learning units (LU). Under the state of Colorado's rules for continuing education for state licensure renewal, this program should meet the requirements for 3.0 HSW CEH.

The seminar is $25 for members to attend and $45 for non-members to attend.

Register online by noon on Friday, Aug. 15.

Universal Design/Build
Wednesday, August 27, 2014 8:00:00 AM
Universal Design/Build presents a shift in the approach to residential design and construction. Comfort and convenience regardless of age, stature or ability is the hallmark of inclusive design. Designers suppliers, builders, remodelers, social and health service providers will benefit from the creative design concepts and practices presented to develop market-driven projects that have broad aesthetic appeal as well as the necessary functional attributes. Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) courses are not a pre-requisite and CAPS will find benefit by expanding into the broader spectrum of universal design that offers a much wider target audience. As a graduate of this course, you will be able to: 
  • Describe the significance of integrating UD concepts in residential construction 
  • Distinguish between accessibility solutions and UD solutions 
  • Describe ways that design can be both functional and attractive 
  • Identify and implement solutions for simple and complex scenarios that address various household compositions, budgets and changing needs of clients 
  • Use effective marketing and communication strategies throughout the process 
  • Locate resources, products, materials and services 
While CAPS I and CAPS II are not prerequisites for this course, it is helpful if students have taken the courses sequentially. 
The Universal Design/Build course counts as 12 CE hours for the following designations: CAPS, CGA, CGB, CGP, CGR, GMB, GMR, and Master CGP. It also counts as 6 CE hours for the CMP, CSP, Master CSP, and MIRM designations.

Wednesday, September 03, 2014 3:30:00 PM

ASHRAE 90.1 2007 vs 2010

The imminent launch of LEED V 4 will bring a infrequently-used energy standard to the forefront, ASHRAE 90.1-2010. What's the big deal about this?This session will delve into the details of the differences between ASHRAE 90.1-2007 and ASHRAE 90.1-2010. It will also provide the differences in savings between these two standards through the use of case studies.

Learning Objectives:

Compare ASHRAE 90.1-2007 and ASHRAE 90.1-2010 to understand the differences between the two standards with respect to envelope, HVAC, and lighting considerations

Describe the impact on energy savings when using ASHRAE 90.1-2010 as a baseline instead of ASHRAE 90.1-2007

Identify the differing energy savings impacts between varying building types, through the use of case studies, for application in building design
