WELCOME TO FACADES+ ONLINE ABOUT FACADES+ ONLINE We’re taking Facades+ online to virtually connect some of the world’s most productive building professionals. Much like the national event series we have developed over the past decade, the conference will comprise panels, keynote addresses, and afternoon workshops, as well as networking breaks for both our attendees and sponsors. Facade design always has to strike the right balance between aesthetics and technical detailing—no easy feat. Indeed, architects and designers are expected to satisfy the demands of the client while also meeting performance standards and local building regulations. Facades+ panelists will talk through their process by highlighting exemplary case studies, innovative materials, and strategies for overcoming facade challenges.
