    Abstract

    A historical overview with specific examples of challenges presented by architects and architectural designers for building owners, contractors, suppliers, manufacturers, and formulators of design standards for seals and sealants and glazing systems. A historical trace of technological responses and product solutions to field challenges and problems. Specific examples of developments in applications technology as it relates to various materials used to seal the building exterior. Reflective hindsights, insights, and foresights on the needs for quality performance and design standards in the construction industry. Brief references to the applicable building codes and standards and their development in the area of building seals and sealants.

    An illustrated slide lecture presentation of completed successful works of architecture, and product useage misapplication problems. Creative and innovative design challenges presented by architects making an “expressive statement”. Inventive technological responses to these challenges by manufacturers of seals and building sealants and glazing systems. Examples of innovative products produced by research and design teams within industry which have advanced architectural design technology. Certain examples of water leakage problems on highrise construction in Hawaii regarding glazing systems for window walls and curtain walls.
