Skins on Campus: Bridging Industry and Academia in Pursuit of Better Buildings and Urban Habitat, 12-13 March 2018 at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

The Facade Tectonics Institute will convene its second World Congress on March 12-13, 2018, in Los Angeles at the University of Southern California

The theme of this year’s conference, “Skins on Campus: Bridging Industry and Academia in Pursuit of Better Buildings and Urban Habitat,” focuses on the building facade as the integrative factor in holistic building design. For registration and conference information, go to facadetectonics.org/events.

Organizations and individuals are invited to join as members as the Institute moves beyond talk and into the realm of action and initiatives aimed at improving building performance and urban habitat through the art, science and technology of the building skin.

The SKINS ON CAMPUS theme combines networking with industry and academic leaders with a deep exploration of the building facade as the integrative factor in holistic building design. Program details and information about the Institute may be found at facadetectonics.org/events.

The Institute is an international member organization based at the University of Southern California School of Architecture.

The Institute acts as a building industry resource, conducting research, publishing in print and digital formats, providing educational programs, and organizing outreach events in the form of conferences, symposia, workshops and industry roundtables.

The intent is to provide an independent and neutral platform for information exchange free of hidden agendas and vested interests, acting to bridge the silos that comprise the building industry and fill the knowledge gaps between these silos. The vision/mission of the Facade Tectonics Institute can be found at facadetectonics.org/mission.
