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

Aesthetic Nuance: Blending Systems for an Optimized High Performance Facade

Innovation comes in many forms, and the most successful ones have a subtly transformative effect on the beholder. Three factors characterize high performance facades: the materials, the system (sustainable fabrication and installation), and the design. This panel will explore the subtleties of OFFICE 52 Architecture’s Tykeson Hall and Hacker Architects's Berwick Hall.

Hybrid Timber Construction: Facades and High-Rise Enclosures

The use of timber for both structural and facade systems is growing rapidly in North America. The Pacific Northwest is a leader of this trend, both in completed projects and research. This panel will focus on Lever Architecture’s Nature Conservancy HQ, built of glulam columns and CLT roof panels and clad in perforated weathering steel panels, and RDH’s research on panelized timber as demonstrated by Brock Commons.

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.
