The program includes three sessions covering issues unique to the region, including innovative building skins, high performance facades, and the future face of Atlanta. These well-rounded, expert dialogues will inform and inspire.

The Facades+ conference series is a robust dialogue encompassing all things building skin—bridging the profession, industry, academia, operations, and ownership. We’ve distilled the best of the Facades+ 2-day event into a quick-take morning forum with a strong local flair. Facades+AM returns to Atlanta this January 16.

Program

The rapidly developing technology of high-performance facades has emerged as the key to building integration, and central to the realization of resilient buildings and a sustainable built environment. The building skin combines attributes of appearance and performance like nothing else in architecture. There is much to discuss. We invite you to join the conversation as we bring this forum to Atlanta, GA.

1. Giant Skins: Developments of Midtown Atlanta

This panel focuses on innovations in building envelopes of two important projects in midtown Atlanta’s urban sprawl; Star Metals Project and the NCR World Headquarters. The aim is to address questions of development and economy through these important and impactful case studies that define and influence the city’s growing infrastructure and neighborhoods. While addressing shifting paradigms of what institutes and facilitates sustainable mixed use developments, specifically their facades, the panel will talk about performance of the said projects.

2. Buckhead Rising: Complexities of Commercial Facades

Experts from the design and construction teams of the Phipps Plaza and Three Alliance will share details about strategies, performance, material and execution complexities. This panel will expound on these projects with a special focus on their facade design and technology. The architecture of Buckhead, the financial center and the affluent urban core of the city of Atlanta, is a manifestation of its wealthy demography, comprising mansions, luxury retail and commercial opulence and reflects in its phenomenal facades which will be discussed at this symposium.

3. Atlanta Repurposed: Adaptive Re-use and Preservation of Facades

Multiple historic projects in Downtown Atlanta adopt a route that eliminates the act of demolishing and embraces preservation and adaptive reuse. For a city with an architectural footprint that spans over a century, thoughtful, feasible and advanced treatment of its structures has been crucial. With these buildings marking the city’s identity, their facade treatment takes a position of priority in all design interventions. This panel will focus on architectural endeavors that use unconventional methods with the objective of respectfully resuscitating structures of significance and their skins across downtown Atlanta—for example: Flatiron City and the Hurt Building renovation.
