Turner Exhibits has been designing and producing custom kinetic architecture systems for more than a decade, and has contributed to multiple AIA award-winning projects. Employing new and old technologies to create contemporary solutions, the firm has helped architects create dramatic transformation of building envelopes and interiors throughout the United States and Canada. Turner Exhibits’ co-owner Greg Cain will present an overview of the firm’s work in residential and commercial architectural applications and also focus on several recent projects in detail. The lecture will explore how to establish criteria that create the basis of system selection and design, discuss typical project development paths, and demonstrate how kinetic architecture systems are compatible with low-energy and off-grid architectural designs.

Greg Cain was Turner Exhibits’ founding employee – he launched the design-build firm with Phil Turner in 1987 – and today co-owns the company with Steve Groves. Cain’s work is as diverse as the architects, designers, and companies he serves. He has managed development of permanent exhibits for the National Park Service, The Museum of Flight, and The Boeing Company, and collaborates with many independent exhibit designers throughout the West Coast. Kinetic architecture collaborations with BOORA Architects, ZGF Architects, and Olson Kundig Architects have been Cain’s focus in recent years. His passion for quality equally informs Turner Exhibits’ design process and its high standards for craftsmanship.
