Facades+ attendees take a break.

We just wrapped up the latest installment of our Facades+ conference series. It was our most successful event yet! The response was overwhelmingly positive as hundreds of eager professionals converged on Chicago to discuss the most exciting breakthroughs in facade technologies. With sold-out workshops, standing-room-only panels, and sponsors already signing up for next year, Facades+ PERFORMANCE surpassed our greatest expectations!

“The Facades+ conference hits the sweet spot between design, engineering, the industry, and the academy, so there’s really something for everyone,” said AN executive editor Alan G. Brake. “The Chicago conference, at the beautiful IIT campus ablaze with fall color, was one of the most successful to date. It was two days full of inspiring, behind the scenes stories of how great buildings are made and the important technical knowledge that is advancing the profession.”

Facades+ PERFORMANCE, presented by AN and Enclos, marked the sixth event in our expanding legacy of conferences. Focusing on the most pressing issues in design, construction, and fabrication of cutting-edge facades, Facades+ has traversed the nation to bring critical dialogs on the building skin to the innovative processionals at the heart of the AEC industry. This year, the crowds went wild as keynote speakers Stefan Behnisch (Behnisch Architekten) and Gerardo Salinas (Rojkind Arquitectos) discussed the rapidly evolving role of the building skin amidst emerging technologies, and the architects’ struggle to maintain sustainability while making the most of these radical innovations.

As the theme of the conference changes with each season, a few familiar faces continue to return for more. Repeat attendees tell us that they keep coming back to Facades+ because it continues to bring the fresh perspectives, exciting case studies, and breakthrough ideas that allow them to push their professional practices forward.

If you missed this one, don’t worry – we are already gearing up for the next electrifying installment of the Facades+ conference series, returning to New York City this April! And stay tuned, Dallas, because Facades+ will be breaking ground in your city next fall! Be prepared for more fascinating speakers, hands-on workshops, and more of the unparallel networking experience that you have come to expect from our signature events.
