Where do I begin with this one? Mic Patterson is a name in the facade, architecture, cladding, and innovation space, that needs no introduction to many. Mic and I go on a fun little journey here into a variety of topics including his background, education, growth, starting a business, transitioning a business, sustainability, book writing, glass, glazing, opaque walls, and Facade Tectonics formation. We land at some hot and relevant topics related to facade performance, sustainability, 2030 mandates, innovation, and more. 

Some topics covered include:

  • Listening to Buckminster Fuller lectures at Univ of Illinois (visiting lecturer)
  • Starting in Architecture and graduating in Industrial Design.
  • Being a student of architect, forms, functional structures, process.
  • Sustainability
  • Book writing and publishing
  • PhD work
  • Facade Plus formation
  • Facade Tectonics
  • Energy 
  • Line item cost myopia
  • Facade "Geekdom"
  • Biosphere II project
  • and more
