WELCOME CONFERENCE ORGANIZERS

A MESSAGE FROM THE FACADES+ DIRECTOR

Welcome to Facades+ Los Angeles! The Architect’s Newspaper is nearing the end our seventh year of the Facades+ conference program. We are pleased to welcome new attendees and longtime supporters to the program’s dynamic dialogue. We strive to bring fresh and relevant programming to each city, and have enjoyed the loyalty of our “facade geeks” who attend every event and come from around the globe to attend Facades+. Los Angeles is a center of innovation across the AEC industry, from experiments with high-performing materials to resiliency strategies. Facades+ Los Angeles brings together top professionals from the worlds of design, fabrication, and construction to consider how high-performance envelopes contribute to Los Angeles’ distinctive character and meet the city’s growing needs.

Diana Darling The Architect’s Newspaper Publisher, Conference Director

Thursday’s symposium features keynote addresses by Thom Mayne and Heather Roberge, plus exciting work by Jenny Wu. You’ll be treated to panel discussions on topics ranging from DTLA’s new developments, Amazon’s spheres in Seattle, opportunities and risks involved in facade delivery, and design of the Academy Museum among leading researchers from LA’s top design programs and firms. On Friday, we delve into hands-on labs and deep-dive workshops with expert practitioners across the industry. We’d like to thank our conference co-chair, Stan Su from Morphosis, who has helped curate this program of innovators 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 these industry-leading sponsors in the Methods+Materials Gallery and learn how they shape the future of building-facade technology.

Dionne Darling The Architect’s Newspaper Associate Publisher

Has Facades+ struck a chord with you? Have a look at our upcoming 2019 events, and Facades+AM, a quick-take version of Facades+ held in cities across the country. We’ll next be headed to Seattle on December 7th. Also, mark February 8th in your calendar for the 1st edition of TECH+ Forum and Expo in San Francisco, showcasing the future of technology in the AEC industry. You won’t want to miss it. Later in the spring, TECH+ also returns to NYC on May 21st for the 3rd edition. We are eager to hear from you about how we might improve the Facades+ experience. Talk to us. And please spread the word—help us to continue to grow the Facades+ dialogue and community.
