Green Zip® was invented by W. Frank Little, AIA, NCARB, ASID emeritus. Frank studied under E. Fay Jones, an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright; has a Bachelor of Architecture from The University of Arkansas; and an MS in Architecture/Tax Law from Texas A&M where he earned a perfect 4.0 GPA.
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 Architects in Houston, Texas.
Frank excelled at Gensler and went on to become a Director 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/sustainable architecture principals.
With the invention of the Green Zip® Movable and Removable Partition and demountable drywall tape, Frank made it possible to remove, relocate and reuse standard commercial construction walls. Frank used this invention to forge the link between ESG/sustainable architecture and tax law, making sustainable building affordable and profitable.
