FACADE TRENDS AND INNOVATION 

\\ Performance driven façade features creating architectural icons 

 

Roman joined the engineering firm Knippers Helbig in 2007 and was the first employee trained as a façade specialist. As both an Architect and Certified Facades Engineer he leads the facades team in New York City and Stuttgart.

His association to structural engineering, environmental design and deep knowledge of the latest fabrication techniques allow him to transfer structural efficiency and thermal performance into facade design.

The center aspiration of this work is to create a balanced link between architectural motivated and performance-driven design.

His portfolio includes projects like the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (Steven Holl), Harvard Science Complex (Behnisch Architekten) or the Toronto Court House (Renzo Piano).
