    Affordable, energy efficient, and healthy housing is a key component of individual, community, and planetary resilience and is increasingly scarce in both rural and urban regions on the West Coast of the US and many other ...
  • Sheine, Judith; Fretz, Mark; O'Halloran, Simone; Gershfeld, Mikhail; Stenson, Jason (Institute for Health in the Built Environment, University of Oregon, 2023)
    Mass timber panel production came to the United States after developments in Europe and Canada; the first domestic structural cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels were manufactured by DR Johnson Wood Innovations in Riddle, ...
  • Mhuireach, Gwynne A.; Dietz, Leslie; Griffiths, Willem; Horve, Patrick Finn; Laguerre, Aurelie; Northcutt, Dale; Vandegrift, Roo; Gall, Elliott; Van Den Wymelenberg, Kevin (Elsevier, 2021)
    Indoor environmental quality is a paramount concern among architects. Exposure to VOCs and microorganisms impacts occupant health, yet the role of materials on these exposures remains poorly understood. In this study, we ...
  • Brown, G. Z.; Peffer, Therese (Center for Housing Innovation, University of Oregon, 1997)
    The construction of single family housing in the United States is growing increasingly industrialized with panelization emerging as the dominant form of industrialization. Will this trend mean that housing construction, ...
  • Brown, G. Z.; Meacham, Matthew (Center for Housing Innovation, University of Oregon, 1995-03)
    This paper describes the logic testing for an expert system module that looks at an inprocess CAD drawing, identifies the plan type and recommends an alternative plan that is consistent with the designer's preferences, but ...
