Facades+ Performance Symposium
April 24, 2014 @ CUNY Graduate Center

Facades+, presented to you by The Architect’s Newspaper in collaboration with Enclos, is the seventh 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 Performance.

In February 2012, the first Facades+ conference kicked off in New York City. After receiving positive feedback and great responses from our speakers, attendees, and sponsors, we are thrilled to begin our third sequence with this New York conference. And in 2014 we introduce a new city: Dallas!

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.
