Upcoming Webinar: FEVE Architectural Coatings: High Performance Coatings for Expansive, Sustainable Design

Chase Center, San Francisco, Gensler, Manica Architecture, Kendall Heaton Associates, LUMIFLON USA, Jason O Rear Photography
In this one-hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats. We will evaluate coating performance tests including accelerated weathering and real-time weathering and what the implications are for the life of different coatings. We will explore the many design possibilities that FEVE technology provides and assess the sustainability benefits of FEVE topcoats despite their higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.

Architects Transform Concrete Structure Into Modern Office Complex In Watertown

The Linx, Watertown, MA, SGA Arch, Callahan, Boylston Properties, Commercial, CEI Materials
The Linx is a modern office complex in Watertown, Massachusetts, adapted from a concrete warehouse. The stunning adaptive reuse project, designed by Spagnolo, Gisness & Associates (SGA Arch), replaced the heavily concrete exterior with glass and modern metal materials. The combination of perforated metal and glass allows for a substantial influx of natural light while the use of iridescent metal playfully changes the exterior throughout the day.
