AIA Education at SOM

Chicago, IL – Building Blocks will host a Lunch & Learn session at the Chicago offices of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill next week. The session focuses on the high-performance capabilities of glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC). It defines the manufacturing, system capabilities, and design. The session also illustrates the value of GFRC for complex facade skins. Similarly, it discusses the role of GFRC in facade innovation. We look at some of today’s best architecture and how it uses GFRC.


Building Blocks is an American Institute of Architects (AIA) approved provider of continuing education. As a result, we give Lunch & Learn presentations for practicing architects. We teach sessions about GFRC and terra cotta. See more information about the AIA CEU courses we offer here.
