Rigidized® Metals Presents at Facade Tectonics #14 



Rigidized presents at the Facade Tectonics #14:

"FACADE T E C T O N I C S was established as a research focus group of the doctoral program in the School of Architecture at the University of Southern California in 2008. The group held workshops, conferences and Ph.D. seminars examining a range of issues related to the “outside six feet” of a building. Students and faculty were interested in materials, assemblies, sustainability, daylighting, structures, and many other topics. Our enthusiasm quickly outgrew our group. Strong professional and academic interest in the building envelope resulted in sold-out conferences, and FACADE T E C T O N I C S has emerged as a global collaborative community of professionals and scholars. We welcome the participation of everyone involved in the design, delivery, maintenance and use of the building envelope."

Our presentation focused on the advantages added by deep texturing metal to parametrically designed facade components.
