Expanded mesh and perforated metal are increasingly being used in design-forward and award-winning architectural projects. In this course, we will cover the many different benefits of these materials, both aesthetic and functional, as well as key design considerations to ensure a successful project and safe installation. Finally, you will explore a wide breadth of growing applications of these materials and how they are used to contribute to LEED, encourage social interaction, and help to create beautiful environments. Throughout the course, you will be met with inspiration and ideas that will grow your perspective of design with expanded mesh and perforated metal as well as discover how these materials can be used to elevate the human experience and well-being of occupants.
