Building Hugger, Practicing Historic Window Preservation In Downtown Detroit

ROYAL OAK – Amy Swift, founder of Building Hugger, who started her career as an architect doing sustainable designs. She left the corporate world to found a company that specializes in historic window restoration…and there are lot of old buildings downtown that can use her skills. Amy is interviewed on M2 TechCast by Tember Shea, Director of the InGAGE master class at Inforum, a training program for second stage women entrepreneurs.

Before windows, Swift used to teach architectural history/design/theory at LTU, and Albert Kahn is a centerpiece of her theories on the intersection of craft vs. production.
