John Doherty and Matthew Manis Discuss Environmentally Responsible Building Envelope Design at AIA24

Every year, the AIA Conference on Architecture and Design brings together the AEC industry to network, share knowledge, gain exposure, and find multidisciplinary solutions to today’s most pressing issues. MG Partner John Doherty and Matthew Manis, Technical Director of AKRF, delivered their presentation titled “Bronx Tale: A Study in Environmentally Responsible Building Envelope Design.” They discussed innovative building envelope considerations, including acoustics, thermal and moisture control, varying rainscreen systems, and structural backup options. The pair shared their experience designing PS347 and essential insights into synthesizing technical and aesthetic considerations to create contemporary learning environments.
