In the Center for Architecture Gallery:
Evolution of Enclosure: The Anatomy of Building Performance

We now have the science and techniques to build for comfort, health, and revolutionary efficiency. At the center of it all is the advanced building envelope. Join AIA Portland and builder Hammer & Hand for this exhibit of building praxis, “Evolution of Enclosure: The Anatomy of Building Performance.” Drawing on built projects in Portland and Seattle designed by four leading NW architecture firms, the exhibit will explore the building science that guides high performance assemblies.

Four full-scale wall assembly cross sections, a suite of building science of illustrations, project photography, and an interactive set of high performance building animations will show how buildings can go from net consumers of energy to net producers: part of the climate solution.

The exhibit Opening Party will take place at AIA Portland on First Thursday, August 6, and will include the unveiling of the winning entries of the perFORM 2015 Building Design Competition. Evolution of Enclosure will run through September 10. Don’t miss it!

The exhibition will be on display August 6 to September 10.
