    QUIZ

    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

     

    Architecture Puzzler #443

    Why would you specify a photocatalytic coating on your new building's glazing?


     

    Question from Last Week:
    Architecture Puzzler #442

    The International Building Code requires you to provide one foot-candle of light at the ground surface along the path of egress from the building you are designing to the public way. In order to get a sense of how much light this is, you might compare it to moonlight. About how much light does a full moon provide on a clear night: one-half foot-candle, one foot-candle, or two foot-candles?
