The premier conference on high performance building enclosures
In its 10th year, Facades+ continues to bring together the world’s most talented building professionals.
Facades+ Seattle brings the latest technologies, ideas, and inspiration for building envelope design to the Pacific Northwest. With the help of NBBJ's Seattle leadership, you'll learn about the latest in daylighting research, energy modelling, facade design and technologies for both large scale and smaller scale projects.

What past attendees have said
The FACADES+ conference offers architectural participants at all levels of experience great opportunities. Recent graduates learn from experts and develop a basic understanding of facade issues to share with their colleagues. Seasoned professionals contribute to the development of a richer facade design vocabulary within the profession.

Over the past 10 years, Facades+ has grown and evolved into a vital voice of the facades industry. As someone who has grown with the conference, attending as a participant at the second ever NYC event, to host city co-chair, featured speaker, panelist, and co-leader of the wildly popular Enclosure Detailing Workshop series, Facades+ has provided a much needed forum for facade geeks, creating a vibrant community that we so desperately needed.
Bradford J. Prestbo, FAIA
I was challenged to be honest to the materials and essence of the facade and what it represents in the program behind it. I also came away feeling we can strive for higher quality facades in idea, form, and technology regardless of a market driven architectural environment.
What Facades+ did well was prepare thoughtful sequencing, integrating owners, educators, contractors, politicians, consultants, engineers, architects, and vendors into an overarching discussion which worked in parallel with one’s attention span for engaging, compelling ideas.
This event fosters idea generation and creative thinking. This is at the heart of 3M’s innovative culture so Facades+ is the perfect place for us to meet with like-minded people who look for new and better ways of doing things.
