Building Science is a relatively new topic in the field of building construction and architecture that seeks to understand some of the more complex issues such as climate control, indoor air quality, and one of the least-understood topics: moisture. Not many people in the building field really understand what happens when water goes someplace undesired, such as when rain gets behind exterior siding. There is an interesting article in Fine Homebuilding about the controversies surrounding the subject of Building Science... it's worth reading.
Few people understand it. Nobody agrees what it is, how to learn about it, or who's responsible for it. It has never been more important
