Architecturally EXPOSED! From High-Tech Architecture to Today's Best Practices in Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel [A5]

Architects want architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) to meet their expectations when it comes to appearance, budget, quality, and structural integrity. The category system in AISC's Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges effectively communicates expectations and should be used on any AESS project. Learn about the birthplace of AESS and its roots in high-tech architecture, where designers first took the bold approach of exposing the bones of our buildings. You'll take home today's best practices for AESS, including how and when to implement the category method to effectively communicate the desired appearance for AESS in a format that contractors can easily understand.
