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 Director (Boston)
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.
Michael Joyce Senior Architect
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, across a multitude of activities that included presentations, panel discussions, workshops, good food and informal conversation.

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.
