This gallery looks at innovative steel building construction and was created to support the project galleries of the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction and Steel Structures Education Foundation, as well as for use in teaching at the School of Architecture at the University of Waterloo.
The buildings represent a wide array of Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel applications, as well as steel that will eventually be concealed in the finished architecture.
This project has been awarded an SSEF Education Resources Grant to be developed into an interactive study entitled "Morphing Connections". The resource will assist students in both understanding the functionality of basic steel to steel connections, as well as how to modify these to create the more innovative details that are being used in contemporary Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel applications. The work is being carried out by Professors Terri Boake and Vincent Hui of the School of Architecture at the University of Waterloo.
