Building Envelope

Most residential building envelopes still uses wood framing, technology that is hundreds of years old, with insulation and interior drywall technology about 60 years old, while the exterior cladding is either siding or brick. I propose a new technology that eliminates the decay, fire hazard, and several other problems associated with that way of building, while lasting hundreds of years.


The "Building Envelope" category under "Current calls or Innovation" still has "coming soon", so is unusable, or I would go more into detail.
