Research + Development
First, a robust research and development agenda of facade related issues independent of commercial project work. The intent is to promote collaborative R&D and product development initiatives involving industry, profession and academy.
The work process of the Advanced Technology Studios is integrated with rapid visualization technologies that bring design concepts to physical form at record speed.
The intent is to weave the Studios into the fabric of their local design communities, thereby providing a top-level technical resource devoted to the building skin for our many clients located within these communities.

Industry media has described the Advanced Technology Studios as “a facade think tank” and a “facade-centric, creative universe where teams of diverse professionals address the top concerns of the rapidly changing facade industry.”1 We invite you to visit us at either Studio location at your earliest convenience.
