OUR STORY

Green Zip® was invented by W. Frank Little, AIA, NCARB, ASID.  Frank studied under E. Fay Jones, an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright.  Frank earned a BS in Architecture from The University of Arkansas and went on to earn a MS in Architecture / Tax Law from Texas A&M.

From an early age, Frank loved nature and wanted to do his part to help preserve it.  He believed that a change in architecture philosophy could make a big difference in the impact that the construction of buildings has on the natural environmental.  Frank’s career began as an architect and Project Director, for Gensler & Associates in Houston, Texas.

Frank excelled at Gensler and went on to work for a Big Four accounting firm.  Frank’s entrepreneurial spirit then led him to open his own boutique architecture firm, Tax Advantage Design, to focus on delivering his organic architecture principals.

With the invention of the Green Zip® Demountable Drywall Tape System, Frank made it possible to remove, relocate and reuse standard commercial construction walls.  Frank used this invention to forge the link between sustainable architecture and tax law, making sustainable building affordable and profitable.

“THE ARCHITECT MUST BE A PROPHET . . . A PROPHET IN THE TRUE SENSE OF THE TERM.
IF HE CAN’T SEE AT LEAST TEN YEARS AHEAD, DON’T CALL HIM AN ARCHITECT.”
— Frank Lloyd Wright
