Preservation Bay Area Heritage: Restoration and Reinvention

Architectural heritage is often characterized as an impediment to the architectural development of urban areas. However, on going criticism lodged at the carbon footprint associated with demolition and reconstruction, and the reappraisal of historic structures, is fostering a profound movement towards restoration and adaptive re-use. The projects on this panel provide two in-depth perspectives on this phenomenon; Simpson Gumpertz & Heger’s facade restoration campaign of the sprawling Pacific Gas & Electric Building, and the ongoing re-clad of 633 Folsom Street by Gensler, Atelier 10, and the Swig Company.

Designing sustainable building envelopes by thinking outside the box

As the built environment becomes more complex, so too are the systems are used to create them. During this afternoon’s topics we will learn from industry experts on how these systems can contribute to a sustainable building envelope, such as firestop systems that ensure occupant’s safety, self-cleaning facade panels and smart tinting glass technologies to ensure occupant comfort.
