2017 PCI Foundation Professor Seminar

Charles Jones, along with Emily Baker, will attend this exciting seminar in a continued effort to establish a long-term educational partnership between Tulane School of Architecture and the Precast Concrete Institute

Seminar Summary:

The PCI Foundation offers a program for architecture professors who wish to learn more about precast concrete design and how it can be taught in the university classroom or studio. The program will be a three-day intensive workshop that will include instruction from college professors already teaching precast as part of grants received from the PCI Foundation, precast industry experts, and architects with precast design experience.

The program will take place May 16-18 in Denver, Colorado with portions of the program taking place at the University of Colorado, Denver. Professors will learn the basics of precast concrete design for buildings and will be given tools that will assist them in teaching precast concepts to students. Additionally, the topics of integrated programs and partner relationships will be covered. At the end of the program, professors will receive “Precast in a Box” — a special resource designed to offer professors a selection of teaching tools that he or she can select to use in the classroom. During the field day, we will visit a precast fabricator, Denver architecture firm and several precast projects.

Content provided to professors interested in teaching precast design will include videos, books, case studies, precast details, and other useful materials. Many of the PCI Foundation-sponsored programs have offered integrated courses with either engineering or construction management departments. If professors from either of those departments wish to attend, it can be arranged.

Panel Discussion Topic : Open Source Architecture

Description:

Open-source sharing is commonly practiced within the world of software, tech and a burgeoning group of progressive disciplines.  Architecture has been slow to develop a network of openness towards others. However, a handful of firms have publicly published items from construction details to downloadable plans.  In this session, attendees will learn how architects are sharing successfully, how they are furthering their firm and the profession in the process, and the associated risks.
