Day 1 Symposium Thursday, October 24, 2013 Day 2 Workshops Friday, October 25, 2013 Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago




welcome! A Message from the Facades+ Partners We are very excited to welcome you to our Facades+ Chicago conference, symposium, and workshops. Our 2013 theme is Performance, and we have a stellar lineup of speakers converging on the campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology, a most fitting venue for this exciting event. Our 2013 conference series has been the best yet, with sold out venues in New York City in April and San Francisco in July. The attendees span the AEC industry, with many façade luminaries among both speakers and audience. With every event, Facades+ has become increasingly anticipated, better attended, and more engaging. There is good reason for this. Building facade technology and design practices are in the midst of a transformation that is bringing a profusion of new materials, processes, and design strategies to the realm of the building skin. One need only review the facade designs of five years ago in comparison to those on the boards and under construction today to observe this phenomenon. And the evolution of the field is accelerating, driven by the escalating performance and aesthetic demands on building envelope systems. Building energy consumption and related carbon emissions are now widely acknowledged problems, and broad-based performance enhancements are the only solution. We have no choice but to innovate our way to a sustainable built environment, and the facade is pivotal in this pursuit. Facades+ is a strategic response to these emerging conditions and how they impact the building skin; a learning opportunity intended to facilitate a dialogue that spans the profession, the industry, and the academy. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, the attendees. We recognize that your participation here represents an expenditure of resources, time, and money. The AEC industry has long been deficient in investing in its future. Many of us are working to change that. This conference is intended to give voice to these efforts. We especially want to thank our sponsors, and hope that all of you will recognize and acknowledge the importance of their support. We also encourage your organization to consider future sponsorship and participation in Facades+ events. Even as we share in the enthusiasm for this Chicago event, we are planning our upcoming conferences. We will soon be announcing the series theme for 2014 and the event dates through the year. We are excited to add Texas to the tour; in October of 2014 we will be hosting a Facades+ conference in Dallas in partnership with Tex-Fab. We are very much interested in your thoughts on how we might improve the experience. Please join the Facades+ dialogue!
