DEEP DIVEThinking Outside the Box: Detailing and Fabrication Considerations for Advanced Building Geometries

The advance of computational design and material developments has furthered the complexity of facade systems across building scales. The successful execution of such projects requires an integrated approach to design and fabrication. This panel will present and discuss British Columbia’s Temple of Light and the GNW Pavilion, and the faceted exoskeleton facade of ZGF’s The Mark.

RESIDENTIAL Optimizing Residential Design: Pursuing a Housing Model for the Seattle Area

Over the last decade, Su Development and Bohlin Cywinski Jackson have collaborated on a series of residential towers in Bellevue, Washington. What renders the projects so unique is the vertically integrated approach established by Su Development; the development firm, founded by engineer John Su, designs and fabricates its own custom facade systems. This panel will explore both the relationship between the stakeholders of the projects, and present a dive into the customized window wall modules of the towers.
