Anthony Birchler leads the design-engineering team at Zahner. Since 1998, he has been responsible for designing many of the Zahner patented systems which are now used to complete bold architecture all over the world. For many architects, Mr. Birchler is the face of Zahner. He works directly with owners, engineers, architects, and general contractors, providing solutions for the production of complex facades.

Mr. Birchler shared responsibility for developing two out of the five patents held by Zahner, best known for the ongoing work that he put into developing the patented ZEPPS process, Zahner’s dual-curvature building system, which has been used to make complex buildings such as Emerson College at Los Angeles, the facade for Suzanne Roberts Theatre in Philadelphia, Pritzker Pavilion, as well as the KPF-designed Petersen Automotive Museum, currently under construction in Los Angeles.
