Nothing in architecture combines issues of appearance and performance like the building skin.

The Facade Tectonics Institute is an international member organization with the mission of carrying out progressive and broad-based research in building facade technology. The intent is to catalyze and foster a deep dialogue of collaborative research activity that bridges the fragmented market segments of the building industry, pairing industry, government, academia, the profession, and ownership.
