Join Us in Washington DC

The program includes three sessions covering issues unique to the region, including innovative building skins, high performance facades, and the future face of Washington DC. 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.

Placemaking and Monumentality: Opaque Facade Strategies

The capital region is no stranger to monuments and museums; two projects, the Kennedy Center’s REACH expansion and the Glenstone Museum, exemplify the power of place facades can achieve. Both case studies are demonstrations in opacity and volume and the ability of surfaces to register and heighten their surroundings.

High Performance Facades and Materials Research

In January 2019 Washington D.C.’s city council passed the ambitious Clean Energy Act DC, an ambitious piece of legislation enacting strict building performance energy standards by 2021. Complying with the new standard will require innovative facade solutions as well as the application of high-performing materials. Join Transsolar and UC Berkeley’s Center for the Built Environment in a discussion-led panel focused on their sustainability process and materials research.

Designing sustainable building envelopes by thinking outside the box

As the built environment becomes more complex, so too are the systems are used to create them. During this afternoon’s topics we will learn from industry experts on how these systems can contribute to a sustainable building envelope, such as firestop systems that ensure occupant’s safety, self-cleaning facade panels and smart tinting glass technologies to ensure occupant comfort.
