Keynote Speaker, Ken Yeang’s vision for a green skyscraper.
Whatever your plans may be for this summer, be sure to check out this year’s second facades+ PERFORMANCE conference, symposium, and workshops in San Francisco on July 11th-12th, hosted by The Architect’s Newspaper in collaboration with Enclos. Registration is now open!
Facades+ is an ongoing series of conferences that has traveled to cities across the nation, including New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. Each year the event focuses on a new theme, this year we have selected Performance.
After receiving positive responses from our New York City conference attendees this past April we are thrilled to bring the event to San Francisco. For this two-day event we have recruited a few of the industry’s frontrunners in building skin technology to speak and lead workshops on the delivery, development, and maintenance of high-performance building skins that effectively respond to the rapidly changing environmental conditions we face today.
Featuring a Keynote Address by Ecoarchitect Ken Yeang of Hamzah & Yeang, Day 1 (Symposium Day) of the event will include a series of discussion-based panels and presentations presented by leading design professionals. Day 2 (Workshops Day) of the event will be dedicated to half-day Dialog Workshops that will take place in intimate seminar-style classrooms, and full-day Technology Workshops in which participants will work on hands-on assignments.
