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 San Francisco. 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.

California is no stranger to natural disasters, ranging from significant earthquakes to climate-change induced wildfires. This panel will bring together the firm’s behind 181 Fremont and The Exchange, in a presentation and discussion of the design measures taken to boost long-term resiliency and environmental performance. Moderator: Lynne Riesselman
Downtown San Francisco is undergoing an impressive phase of development, which includes the construction of ground-up buildings shifting from the paradigm of flat-glass facades to hybrid opaque projects with complex facade geometries. This panel brings together the architects and facade consultants of two recent projects; Studio Gang and Heintges for the twisting and metal-clad Mira Tower; and Handel Architects and WJE’s GFRC-mounted 950 Market Street. Moderator: Ivan Chabra
Architectural heritage is often characterized as an impediment to the architectural development of urban areas. However, ongoing criticism lodged at the carbon footprint associated with demolition and reconstruction, and the reappraisal of historic structures, is fostering a profound movement towards restoration and adaptive re-use. The projects on this panel provide two in-depth perspectives on this phenomenon; Simpson Gumpertz & Heger’s facade restoration campaign of the sprawling Pacific Gas & Electric Building, and the ongoing re-clad of 633 Folsom Street by Gensler, Atelier Ten, and the Swig Company. Moderator: Katherine Miller

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.
