WE ARE LIVE IN
September 15, 2021
We are back in person!
Facades+ Portland will be The Architect’s Newspaper’s first in-person event of 2021. The full day conference is co-chaired by Dallas-based firm Omniplan and will feature a morning of panel dialogue and presentations, and an afternoon of manufacturer led workshops. The program is curated by The Architect’s Newspaper, and strives to include a breadth of facade design topics; ranging from residential facades to the community impact of monumental projects. Stay tuned as we finalize the impressive roster of project leaders hailing from near and far.
Vice President Sales & Marketing
Senior Project Director
Principal & Senior Building Science Specialist
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 its uniquely sustainable achievements.
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.
This panel includes a joint presentation by Ennead Architects and Thorntom Tomasetti on their open-jointed fritted glass double skin for the Knight Campus. Allied Works will dive into the design and engineering of the UHPC brise-soleil of the U.S. Embassy Mozambique.
AFTERNOON LUNCH & LEARN

This course is designed to eliminate the confusion associated with the basics of perimeter fire containment systems. Fully understanding the role and value of tested perimeter fire barrier systems in today’s ever-changing and complex designs cannot be overstated and understanding the unique challenges of these designs present are critical in the design phase to eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements prior to construction.
- Fully understand the basics of curtain walls and how they perform in a fire
- Understand the development of the IBC and State building codes in North America regarding the requirements for perimeter fire barrier systems
- Fully understand the impact of the ASTM E 2307 test standard on actual test that have been run. This easily documents the impact and severity of the new code requirement
- Design for success: Understanding the basics of all non backpan perimeter fire containment tested system
- To make understanding of curtain wall basics fun and easily understood

This presentation will focus on the need for security glazing to protect people and property from human attacks and severe weather. Laminated glass can provide intrusion resistance, as well as protection from flying glass that occurs after a bomb blast. Bullet resistant laminates are designed specifically to stop bullet penetration and fragmentation. Industry standards for testing and specifying security glazing will be reviewed, including standards for physical attack, bomb blast, ballistics and wind-borne debris protection.
- Recognize the growing concern for terrorist attacks, including shootings in schools
- Understand how laminated glass provides intrusion, blast, ballistics, and wind-borne debris protection
- Identify test standards and requirements for security applications
- Identify architectural applications where security glazing is required, including courthouses and embassies

Topics discussed include daylighting strategies available through the integration of structural sandwich panels, energy conservation, enhancements, options, form and aesthetics. The many benefits to health, productivity, safety and sustainable design will be discussed, as well as specialty applications including explosion venting, blast resistance, OSHA fall through protection and hurricane resistance.
- Effective and versatile Daylighting strategies and techniques.
- Special performance options and benefits.
- Applications for sustainable design.
- Diffused daylighting for security, health and safety and inviting interior spaces.
