Evolution of rainscreens: Managing moisture in cladding assemblies
 
One of the most reliable ways of keeping the exterior walls dry or allowing them to dry out when they do get wet is to construct an assembly with an outer protective shell, also known as a rainscreen. The assembly comprises, at minimum, an outer layer, a protected inner layer, and a cavity between them sufficient for the passive removal of liquid and water vapor.

Color play: How to use hues and neutrals in architectural design
 
Architects and designers have discovered the benefits of using laminated glass with colored interlayers to achieve a specific objective. Whether daylighting, wayfinding, area-defining, or simply transforming the space to bring joy, color is being used increasingly and creatively in interior and exterior design. The widespread use of glass in architecture is possible because glass has been made stronger and more versatile with built-in performance features through the use of plastic interlayers.

EXISTING BUILDING SURVEY DATABASE
I'm once again on the ever-elusive unicorn database. I would love to hear any suggestions on what people have used. Here are the things I'm looking for: an app that can cross desktop/mobile/tablets, affordable - free would be awesome, but I'm looking right now for something for me to experiment with, so nothing expensive. The goal is to use this as an existing building survey in place of paper sheets.

HOW MANY FIRMS ARE USING FULL-TIME SPECIFIERS?
We see frequent reference to how architecture firms are using fewer full-time specifiers, but does anyone know a source of actual data? Where can I find how many or what percentage firms have in-house full-time specifiers. How many use outside contractors? In how many firms does the architect do their own specs? In how many firms does no one produce specs? How much has that changed over the years?
