Seattle’s upcoming Facades+ conference focuses on issues unique to the region and the future face of the city. Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Associate Principal Patreese Martin and Principal Robert Miller are co-hosting the morning’s conversations, drawing collaborators from the industry, our practice, and our body of work. We are honored to host a rigorous discussion encompassing all things building skin. Join us December 6 at The Motif Seattle.

Thinking 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.

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.

Futurist Forum:
Glass and Beyond, Influences Inside and Outside the Building Sciences
Phones, automobiles, and a myriad of consumer products are pushing the envelope of what we expect transparent materials to do. What innovations can we expect to see in the next 20 years or beyond?
