Design Solutions - Spring 2020 - 12

A generation is
generally thought of as
a span of time lasting
between 25 and 30 years.
We gain perspective as
we call to mind what has
passed as we enter this
new decade. A generation
ago, we were
amazed
that
we had
offices that
had fax machines
and perhaps a
computer sitting on a
desk. Today, computers have
evolved into tiny handheld
devices that are practically
the heartbeat of our lives
and we operate them
wirelessly. Nearly everyone
has one. Thirty years ago,
we could not have imagined
cloud computing.
We operate vehicles that
not only run on alternative
fuels but, park themselves,
close, lock and start
themselves, and have such
advanced features that they
can analyze the air in the
car and purify it for asthma
sufferers on the go. We talk
to our dashboards.

development, and testing
with advanced technology
have all made this possible.
The enormous size
of these advances has
in some ways made our
world smaller. An AWI
manufacturing member
may be anywhere in the
United States, but efficiently
managing a project on
the opposite side of the
planet in real time with an
internationally coordinated
team of design and
construction professionals.

Advances in
Woodworking
As you'll see in this issue's
technical feature on page
48, we now have highly
engineered wood panels
that can control the quality
of the sound of a space
when properly planned
and installed. Computer
acoustic modeling and
human acoustic expertise
now join together to make
this an important part of a
woodwork project. Human
ingenuity, research, product

New Generation of
Standards
AWI's new generations
of woodwork standards
has been designed to
meet the needs of global
use. The greater global
workplace is served by
developing woodwork
standards in AWI's ANSI
approved process in which
we recognize that much of
the world uses metric and/
or SI decimal dimensions and
tolerances.
