Eric Nulman is an architect and educator based in Los Angeles. Prior to teaching, Eric practiced architecture in Los Angeles, London and Paris at several design offices including Morphosis, Grimshaw, and Ateliers Jean Nouvel. Eric now leads the office END, whose work questions and exploits the domain of architecture. Eric was recently awarded the 2011-12 ACSA/AIAS New Faculty Teaching Award recognizing demonstrated excellence in teaching performance during the formative years of an architectural teaching career (national award with three recipients in 2012).

    Materials and Methods of Building Construction
    Materials and Methods of Building Construction

    Basic considerations and design implications of the problem of determination of the materials and the construction details and processes for buildings.

    Examine the critical role of materials and methods for the design and construction of buildings. The primary focus is on materials and systems, their properties and connections, and their intrinsic relationship to structural systems and environmental performance.

    Students will develop a fundamental understanding of: the relationship of materiality to construction systems and techniques, how building materials are manufactured, and how a material’s modular form, dimensions and intrinsic qualities influence the design process.

    Students will learn about various building systems, and how these systems assist in the expression of a design concept, through an examination of precedent projects whose design concepts were generated by material logics and systems. Students will work hands-on with building materials (concrete, wood, metal, etc.) to get an understanding of each material’s properties.
