Don't miss your chance to attend Facades+ in Chicago

Join us in Chicago at IIT on Thursday October 24 for the symposium and Friday for the workshops. Great keynote (Stefan Behnisch) and speaker lineup.

Facades+, presented to you by The Architect’s Newspaper in collaboration with Enclos, is the sixth 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 after this Chicago conference and to announce 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.
