A tour of the recently reclad Javits Center will be part of a special Facades + Performance Dialog Workshop.

Many conferences leave audiences sitting in a dark theater while speakers and panelists perform on stage. At Facades + PERFORMANCE, April 11-12 in NYC, attendees have the opportunity to have in-depth conversations with architects, fabricators, developers, and engineers. Day 2 Dialog workshops, a new feature at this year’s conference, offer participants an opportunity to interact with some of the industry’s top experts in an intimate, seminar-style setting with a goal of encouraging inquiry and problem-solving.

Participants can select one workshop each from morning and afternoon sessions to create a customized daylong schedule that best suits their professional goals. For those interested in the renovation of large commercial facades in the urban environment and the use of contemporary curtainwall technology to renovate old masonry buildings, a special full-day session, “The Challenge and Opportunity Presented by an Aging Building Stock” is being led by Mic Patterson, director of strategic development at the facade technology firm Enclos. The workshop meets at Enclos’ Advanced Technology Studio, but to discuss retrofitting there’s no better classroom than the city of Manhattan itself—the group will conclude the day with a visit the Javits Center for a tour of the recently reclad building. As part of the program, case studies will be presented by Robert Golda of Heintges; William Paxson & Mayin Yu from Davis Brody Bond, and Hamid Vossoughi of Halsall Associates.

Up to 8 AIA/CES  LU or LU/HSW credits available. Register here.

DIALOG WORKSHOPS MENU

MORNING SESSIONS (choose 1 from the following 3)

A.  DESIGNING & BUILDING PERFORMING FACADES:
No Performance – Poor Performance – High Performance?
4 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS

Markus Schulte, Arup, Coordinator; Panel: Scott Bondi, Mark Mathey, Tali Mejicovsky & Jonathan Wilson, Arup
This workshop will present a holistic view of the design and construction of high performance façade systems utilizing a first principles approach. The discussion will be divided into 3 main topics:
- The Ten Commandments of Building Physics – a guide to understanding the basic principles of thermal performance in facades,
- Unitized Systems:  The good, the bad, and the ugly – an overview of different unitized façade systems in today’s market and how they compare,
- Re-clad and Restore – a look into the process or refurbishing existing facade systems.

B. DEVELOPMENT OF FACADE SYSTEMS FOR SUPER-TALL BUILDINGS
4 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS

Juan Betancur, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, Coordinator; Panel: Anthony Viola & Mostapha Roudsari, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill
This workshop focuses on the methodologies employed at Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture in developing high-performance facades systems for tall buildings. Two areas of focus that will be discussed are the curtain wall panelization for super-tall buildings with complex geometries and the investigation of overall building form as well as facade systems based on site specific environmental performance.

C. IMPLEMENTING EMERGING MATERIALS TECHNOLOGIES
4 LU AIA CE CREDITS

Jeff Vaglio, Enclos; Bill Kreysler, Kreysler & Associates, Coordinators; Panel: Michael Ludvik, M.Ludvik Consulting Engineers; Valerie Block, DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions; Javier Torner, Onyx Solar
Bringing together an array of material technology experts, this session will explore both the unique advantages associated with each material, as well as the challenges of introducing innovative façade technologies into architectural applications.  The discussion will include an emphasis on performance metrics for each technology and case study applications of successful implementation. The topics covered will include:
- Composites and Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP), Bill Kreysler, Kreysler Associates
- Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), Javier Torner, Onyx Solar USA
- Green Façade Technology, Dean Hill, greenscreen
- Ionoplast Interlayers, Valerie Block, DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions
- Bent Splice Plates in Glass Beams, Michael Ludvik, M. Ludvik & Co.

AFTERNOON SESSIONS (choose 1 from the following 3)

D. THE CHALLENGES OF GLASS ARCHITECTURE:
Controlling the Appearance and Performance of Glass in the Building Facade
4 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS

Philip Vourvoulis, Vourvoulis Architectural Glass Consulting/Triview Glass Industries, Coordinator; Panel:Christoph Timm, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill;Bruce Milley, Guardian Industries;Nick Bagatelos, BISEM
No building material has evolved as quickly or dramatically as glass. It has become a ubiquitous architectural material in the process, with a huge impact on the built environment. Yet the proliferation of architectural glass products presents a challenge to the facade designer. Satisfying both performance and appearance goals through glass selection gets increasingly complex as the available options proliferate. This workshop explores the latest in architectural glass materials and processes, including art glass, new printing processes, electrochromic products, and other high-performance glazings. An expert panel, led by Philip Vourvoulis, will discuss these products and processes, the challenges they present, and strategies to optimize performance while maintaining aesthetic control. Exemplary case studies will be included.

E. THERMAL/ENERGY/DAYLIGHTING
4 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS

Chris Stutzki & Matt Kuba, Stutzki Engineering, Coordinators. Panel: James Carpenter & Reid Freeman AIA, JCDA& Architecture Operations D.P.C; Robert Matthew Noblett, Behnisch Architekten; Brandon Coates & Frank Fralick, The Beck Group – Dallas; Erik Olsen, Transsolar Climate Engineering
The three keywords THERMAL, ENERGY, DAYLIGHTING describe the expectation that a new façade directly utilizes the effects of the sun for the goal of an energy efficient building and, simultaneously, use light as an active part of the architecture. Architects and building technology experts will present and discuss their paragon buildings and methodologies of this emerging field of architecture and technology.

F. MULTILAYERED FACADES
4 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS

Areta Pawlynsky, Heintges & Associates & Jessica Zofchak, Atelier Ten, Coordinators. Panel: Pavel Getov, Studio Antares A + E; Peter Simmonds, IBE Consulting Engineers; Leanora Paniccia, Atelier Ten.
Architects are increasingly exploring the possibilities of different materials in the context of multi-layered facades. Projects are now incorporating layers of perforated, translucent, and opaque elements to enhance the building envelope. What are the drivers behind these projects and what is the measurable impact of an additional layer? What strategies have been used successfully to reduce energy use and create balanced daylit environments?  What analysis tools are available to mitigate glare and improve visual comfort? This workshop will investigate these topics in detail by focusing on the layers of several facade case studies.

Daylong Special Session + On-site Visit
NOTE: Meets at Advanced Technology Studio of Enclos, then travels to Javits Center

G. FACADE RETROFIT:
The Challenge and Opportunity Presented by an Aging Building Stock
4 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS

Mic Patterson, Enclos, Coordinator; Robert Golda, Heintges; William Paxson & Mayin Yu, Davis Brody Bond; Hamid Vossoughi, Halsall Associates
What better place to explore this topic than Manhattan, surrounded by aging buildings badly in need of facade renovation both to improve performance and appearance. But these buildings and their facades present unique challenges. This full-day workshop will delve deeply into the various issues comprising the renovation of large commercial facades in the urban environment, particularly the retrofit of old curtainwall facades, and also the use of contemporary curtainwall technology to renovate old masonry buildings. A team of local experts will first establish context by defining the scope of the problem, then follow with a discussion of design strategies, and means and methods for implementing facade retrofit projects. A series of exemplary case studies will be presented, among them will be the recently completed recladding of the Javits Convention Center. The workshop program will conclude with a mid afternoon tour of the Convention Center.
