Episode 08: Reglazing Modernism

Special guests Uta Pottgiesser of TU Delft and Angel Ayón of AYON Studio Architecture and Preservation join us to talk about their recent book, Reglazing Modernism: Intervention Strategies for 20th-century Icons, where they explore facade intervention strategies on Modern-era buildings through international case studies. Glazed facades are recognized as a defining characteristic of Modern architecture and directly linked to the “poor performance and limited longevity” characteristic of these buildings.

Hosted by Mic Patterson, PhD, LEED AP+, Ambassador of Innovation and Collaboration at the Facade Tectonics Institute
