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 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.

The Spy Museum and 2050 M Street are two recent interventions within the center of Washington D.C. demonstrating advanced fabrication and applications of glass facades. This panel will bring together Hickok Cole, Front Inc., and Tishman Speyer in a presentation and discussion of the projects’ designs and technical intricacies. Moderator: Elba Morales
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. Moderator: Sophia Lau
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. Moderator: Holly Lennihan
