THE PREMIER CONFERENCE ON HIGH-PERFORMANCE BUILDING ENCLOSURES
The program includes three sessions covering issues unique to the region, including innovative building skins, high performance facades, and the future face of Charlotte. 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.

From airports to hospitals, this panel will dive into large-scale projects led by Charlotte-based architects and facade consultants both regionally and nationally. Case studies for the panel include Perkins & Will’s ongoing expansion of the Charlotte Douglas International Airport and Walter P Moore’s expertise in healthcare facade engineering.
The use of mass timber is proliferating across North America; regions such as the Pacific Northwest and Ontario are leading the way in both complexity and scale. However, the American Southeast, home to Southern Yellow Pine, could be a leading player in this growing sector. This panel will examine the potential for timber construction in the region and current roadblocks to its implementation.
The design and construction of single-family residential properties, although conducted at a small scale, is a complex task conducted within relatively tight budget constraints. This panel with bring together two North Carolina firms, Tonic Design + Construction and Cluck Design Collaborative, in a robust discussion of material choice and project delivery. Projects to be presented include Tonic’s collaboration with Brooks + Scarpa on the STEEPLEchase house and Cluck’s GreyFriars Residence, the latter of which received the 2019 AIA North Carolina Merit Award.
