WELCOME WELCOME TO FACADES+ PHILADELPHIA! The Architect’s Newspaper is celebrating our 10th Anniversary Year of Facades+ conference program and, after 18 months of disruptions, we are thrilled to welcome new attendees and longtime supporters to the program’s dynamic dialogue. At every Facades+ conference, we strive to bring fresh and relevant programming to each city and are ecstatic to be able to do so again in person. We have taken advanced precautions to ensure that this event will be safe for all attendees. Facades+ Philadelphia brings together top professionals from the worlds of design, engineering, fabrication, and construction to consider how high-performance envelopes contribute to the region's distinctive character and meet the city’s changing needs. We’d like to thank our conference Co-Chairs, Mark Sanderson, Jeff Goldstein and Jules Dingle of DIGSAU, who have helped curate this excellent program of design leaders from a variety of fields. We invite you to connect with presenters and your peers during networking breaks in the Methods+Materials Gallery. Please get to know the industry-leading sponsors in the Methods+Materials Gallery and learn how they shape the future of building-facade technologies. Has Facades+ struck a chord with you? Have a look at our upcoming events held in cities across the country. Next Facades+ heads to New York City in April.
