Unique Brick Architecture
Current trends in architecture include the desire to reintroduce traditional articulated detailing concepts in a modern way. This course discusses the various types of features that can be incorporated into anchored brick veneer, the limits of the prescriptive limits presented in the Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (TMS 402), and general detailing concepts to adapt these types of details to anchored brick veneer construction.
