Art Gallery of Ontario - Advanced Use of CNC Technology & Connection Design by David Moses

A significant feature of the AGO is the front facade glass curtain. Creating the curtain's complex geometry where no two pieces are alike, with thousands of unique connections, in wood members with slender cross sections and significant forces was made possible by the use of CNC machines and the 3D CAD systems (BIM) that feed them. Learn More or Register - Login

Durability of Wood in Exterior Applications by Paul Morris

Wood design, construction and maintenance are rarely perfect. Where there is the potential for moisture accumulation we must ensure durability by nature or by treatment. This presentation is a technical discussion of wood's durability, both its naturally occurring properties as well as durability that can be created through treatment. Learn More or Register - Login
