The practice of forensic architecture is an investigative process that involves the examination of issues or claims made during design, construction, and once the building is completed. Most problems a forensic architect are called upon to inspect are tied to the building envelope (walls, windows, curtain walls, roofing systems, etc.), waterproofing systems, fire resistive wall or ceiling assemblies, building materials, and sometimes basic structural assemblies.

Please join the AIANY Women in Architecture Committee in this architectural practice presentation and panel which will explore the problem-solving procedure that a forensic architect takes. The panel will discuss current methodology for gathering data, non-invasive testing, and how examining and evaluating situations will help generate solutions (repair design) and provide answers (in a court of law) for the problems at hand.
