My name is William Rose. I made a career of building science at the University of Illinois. Now I’m wrapping up, and finding a public home for work I’ve done and work that until now has been incomplete. I hope you find it interesting, entertaining and useful.
There are several themes in the posts to come
- Challenging legacy building practices
- Math and physics
- Historical and archaeological building practices
- Architecture / construction interplay, and architecture education
- Managing rainwater
- Making things better
I do not consult, except for historic public buildings. I no longer travel to teach or present. If you have questions about your particular building, I suggest you consult any of the many fine sources out there, beginning with greenbuildingadvisor.com. I can be reached at email@example.com (I will soon have an address at watersmiths.com). I am new to blogging, so please excuse inevitable upcoming formatting changes. Comments on how to make this blog better are most welcome.
In 2005, I authored this book Water in Buildings, published by Wiley.
Happy new year.
