Facades+, presented to you by The Architect’s Newspaper and Enclos, is the eighth event in an ongoing series of conferences that have unfolded in cities across the nation, including New York City, San Francisco, and Chicago. Each year the event is designed to address a new theme. This year we have selected Resilience.
In February 2012, the first Facades+ conference kicked off in New York City. After receiving positive feedback from our speakers, attendees, and sponsors, we continue our third sequence with this Chicago conference. We are adding two new cities: Dallas – October 30 + 31, 2014 and Los Angeles in 2015.
In an era where climate change and global warming is directly transforming the urban planning of our cities, architects are faced with the challenging task of designing buildings that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also environmentally sustainable. The conference, symposium, and workshops will trace the history and evolution of facade design over the past five years, answer your questions about the performance, delivery and maintenance of sustainably built facades, and propose innovative design solutions to the dynamically changing environmental conditions we face today. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to form valuable professional connections, converse with your peers, and learn from leading industry experts.
We welcome architects, engineers, developers, consultants, and anyone professionally involved in the design industry to participate in this event.
