A panel of three industry experts discuss how metal building products support the increasing demand for sustainable building practices. Often viewed as a glamour product because of its versatility, metal components can also bring high performance to any projects.
Two architects will discuss their selection process for metal building components on recently executed projects.

Hafsa Burt, studio head, hb+a Architects, San Francisco, will present her vision for a modular residential construction that can fit in any environment, which she calls the Box Factory.
