WELCOME

Miami September 10 + 11 2015 A Message from the Facades+ Partners Welcome to Facades+ Miami! Since the inaugural event in New York City in 2012, the Facades+ series has cemented its reputation as the premier conference on high-performance building envelopes. We are delighted to be bringing the conversation about facade design and fabrication to South Florida for the very first time. Miami is the perfect place to talk about facades. The local AEC industry is booming, with dozens of projects under construction and nearly 100 more in pre-construction. Moreover, because of South Florida’s hot, humid weather and its vulnerability to hurricanes and symptoms of climate change including rising sea levels, the area’s academics, policymakers, architects, and builders have become experts on some of the toughest challenges that envelope designers and fabricators are likely to face. Expect a day of stimulating commentary and discussion on contemporary issues ranging from grappling with climate change to interacting with the local regulatory structure, all grounded in real-world examples. We also encourage you to reach out to our sponsors, without whom this event would not be possible. Visit these industry-leaders during our breaks, knowing that they are another resource for staying abreast of cutting-edge developments in the world of facades. The conversations don’t stop here. We’re poised for upcoming Facades+ events in cities across the U.S. Connect with Facades+ weekly newsletters and on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to stay up-to-date on conference locations and dates. Also visit The Architect’s Newspaper at archpaper.com.
