About the event
The Facades+ Conference series, hosted by the Architect’s Newspaper, is hitting the windy city for a day full of tailor-made presentations, robust dialogue, and educational opportunities on all things building skin. Hear from leading specialists about the pioneering projects, products, and manufacturing techniques that are opening new doors for the facades industry. Cladding experts will cover a range of topics, including materials that convey solidity and permanence, the future of glazing in the context of Chicago’s famous high-rise cityscape, and adaptive facade designs for beloved cultural institutions. Considering the demanding thermal needs that the northern seasons require, the program will go beyond architectural design and explore the many variables that are relevant to improved performance standards and architectural design even beyond the region.
