Titanium-Zinc, as a building material, is consistently chosen as a green alternative to many other materials. It is efficient to produce, has almost no waste, lends itself to a variety of design styles, and requires little to no maintenance once installed.

This course will provide an overview of the Titanium-Zinc alloy used in sustainable architectural applications; a study of the metal’s properties, aesthetics, technical aspects, manufacturing process, and appropriate design applications. An overview of the environmental aspects of zinc and how to choose a manufacturer completes the agenda.
