PROGRAM The Facades+ conference series is a dynamic innovation in building skins—bridging the profession, industry, academia, building operations, and ownership. We’ve condensed the best of the Facades+ two-day event into an intensive morning forum with a strong local focus—Facades+AM—this time specific to the opportunities and challenges in Washington D.C. The rapidly developing field of high-performance facades has emerged as essential to building integration, and central to the realization of resilient buildings and a sustainable built environment. The building envelope combines attributes of aesthetics and performance like nothing else in architecture. Washington D.C. has its own special facade conditions and requirements, including addressing security concerns, working within the city’s height limit, and representing institutions and cultural values through architectural form. We invite you to join the dynamic exchange of ideas as we bring this unique event to the nation’s capital for the first time.
