The Facade Tectonics Institute

Chicago, IL – Building Blocks is a supporting member of Facade Tectonics. The Facade Tectonics Institute is an international membership organization. The group carries out progressive, broad-based research in building facade technology. Likewise, they catalyze and foster a deep dialogue of collaborative research activity. Their goal is to bridge the fragmented building industry. Hence, they tie industry, government, academic, design, and building ownership professionals into one comprehensive conversation.

 

The Institute conducts one annual conference. They also host a series of half-day forums at national and international venues. Furthermore, they publish a journal and produce technical guides, research reports, and books addressing diverse areas of building facade technology.
