As building envelopes become more complex, it is imperative that AEC professionals exit their specialist silos and come together to share lessons learned. Facades+, the premier conference on high-performance building enclosures, offers a unique opportunity to interact with the movers and shakers of the AEC industry. Fresh off successful runs in Los Angeles, Dallas, and Chicago, Facades+ is coming next to New York, April 16-17, 2015.

Facades+ brings architects, fabricators, and contractors together to share experiences and learn about advances in facade design and construction.

Day 1 of the conference features a symposium packed with thought-provoking keynotes and panels. Past keynote speakers have included the biggest names in cutting-edge facade design and fabrication, like Gordon Gill, Antoine Predock, and James Timberlake. Panels draw experts from across the AEC industry to puzzle over issues such as resilience, sustainability, preservation, and collaborative design.

On the second day of Facades+, attendees choose from a selection of dialog and tech workshops for hands-on exposure to new concepts and tools. Taught by leaders in their respective fields, and grounded in real-world examples, the workshops provide an unparalleled opportunity to translate the thoughts generated during the symposium into action. Throughout the conference, networking breaks encourage participants to continue the conversation over food and drink.
