If you haven’t been following the Sweet Sixteen this year it’s probably because you thought basketball games were all cancelled due to the global pandemic. You’d be right about that, but you’d also be missing out on the fantastic educational opportunity afforded you by the architects, builders, designers, and tradesmen who submitted their wall sections for comparison in the #WallAssemblySweet16 competition on Instagram, and here on GBA.
Beginning in April, our BS* + Beer discussion group in Kansas City hosted a tournament of sixteen wall assemblies in head-to-head competition for the sake of fun and education. On April 28th Christine Williamson presented her thoughts on the “perfect wall” assembly and then moderated a discussion with finalists Mike Maines and Ben Bogie before awarding the championship belt to the winner. The discussion was fantastic and the results were surprising so grab a cold one, sit back and enjoy the Wall Assembly Sweet 16 Finale.
