Building Science is relatively new field of study, but the issues it addresses are age-old: How do buildings work and how can we design them to work better?

Jacob Deva Racusin is a leader among the new breed of building scientists who blend theory with natural building practice to revolutionize how we approach making the best buildings possible. He draws equally from the worlds of lab-based science and that of healthy, sustainable and natural building materials to create designs that combine the best of the past with the best of the future.

This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of building science, and will involve participants in the understanding of thermal and moisture dynamics through lecture, case study, hands-on testing, demonstration, design exercises, and design review. The course is focused on applying building science principles to inform best design and construction practices, and is suitable for both designers and builders.

The lessons learned in this workshop will help participants to design and build better buildings, providing a toolbox for understanding how to achieve high performance in a wide range of building scenarios.
