A high-performance building must address four major environmental loads: water, air, vapor, and thermal. The location of the required control layers is critical to effective envelope design. This course explores perfect/universal wall design and the use of single-component insulated metal panels (IMPs) to provide all four control layers. Presented here are discussions on the building envelope, rainscreens, perfect wall design, and IMPs, and more specifically, how to incorporate IMPs into engineered façade systems.
