Vitreous Skins: Architectural Palette for Institutes

Envelopes for institutional buildings to be functional, transparent and enabling indoor comfort. For spaces that serve scholarly purposes, acoustic, daylight, energy efficiency, thermal function and comfort are one of the top priorities. Experts from Renzo Piano Building Workshop that have worked on Columbia Mahanttanville campus projects will present: The Jerome Greene Science Center, The Lenfest Center of the Arts and the Forum—where each facade reflects a specific functional need as well as a symbolic role.

Immortal Envelopes: The Lifespan of Iconic Mid-Century Buildings

New York City’s skyline is a constant layering of new and old. Where some facades once pushed the boundaries of engineering and design, many have lost efficiency and purpose. We examine how to increase the lifespan of these icons, through experimentation and innovation, by increasing resources, expertise, and utilizing innovative methods and materials. The panel will discuss retrofitting, re-cladding, and analytics of performance and feasibility, and includes case studies of the United Nations and the Ford Foundation.

Aiming for No Impact: Net Zero Building Enclosures

As we develop more advanced technology, design experimentation comes with adverse environmental impact. Climate change is one of the major concerns of the world today and architectural practices are actively working to reduce their buildings’ carbon footprint: from conception and planning to construction and performance.

Facade Syntax: Changing Context and International Regulations

Architecture is contextual and universal at the same time. While the language of design, material and construction techniques can be translated with ease, the physical location of a project poses multiple challenges for developing systems. With projects from New York to Frankfurt, 1100 Architect and their consultants will discuss vast disparity in codes and regulations in these locations that shape, inform and define their architecture and approach.
