Facades+, presented to you by The Architect’s Newspaper and Enclos, is the ninth event in an ongoing series of conferences that have unfolded in cities across the nation, including New York City, San Francisco, and Chicago. We’ve recently added Los Angeles for winter 2015. Each year the event is designed to address a new theme. This year’s is Resilience.

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.

Facades+ is the leading conference on high performance and high design building skins. A robust dialogue encompassing all aspects of building envelopes, Facades+ bridges industry, academia, the profession, operations, and ownership. The developing technology of high-performance facades has emerged as the key to building systems integration, central to the realization of resilient buildings and a sustainable built environment. We invite you to join the exciting conversation that is Facades+.
