Designing dynamic facades with Troy Donovan
Manage episode 359119738 series 2323308
Facade Design doesn’t have the high profile of architecture, but its impact on how we experience our cities and buildings, as well as their environmental impact, is significant.
Troy Donovan is Principal Facade Designer at Prism Facades and is one of the foremost voices in façade design worldwide. He works closely with architects on public and commercial projects to design, detail and construct the faces of some of the most iconic buildings around the world. Case in point; he’s the Lead for the Sydney Opera House Trust Bronze Project to redesign the architectural bronzework for the interior and exterior of the entire precinct.
Thanks to his phenomenal technical drawings and knowledge sharing, some of which he does live, Donovan has amassed an impressive Instagram following. Although he doesn’t see himself as an academic, he uses the platform to educate and inspire.
Listen in as Vince and Troy discuss the niche industry of facade design, appropriating techniques from automotive production for architecture, and why the AMP building at Circular Quay is his favourite building in the world.
