THREE SESSIONS — NINE SPEAKERS
Join Us in Washington DC
The program includes three sessions covering issues unique to the region, including innovative building skins, high performance facades, and the future face of DC. 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. Facades+AM is returning to DC on March 15, 2018.

- Transparency: Innovative Glazing Systems in our Nation’s Capital
- Opacity: Beyond the Bricks and Mortar
- Connectivity: Where Transparency and Opacity Meet
The rapidly developing technology of high-performance facades has emerged as the key to building integration, and central to the realization of resilient buildings and a sustainable built environment. The building skin combines attributes of appearance and performance like nothing else in architecture. There is much to discuss. We invite you to join the conversation as we bring this forum back to Washington DC in 2018.

1. Transparency: Innovative Glazing Systems in Our Nation’s CapitalGlass and glazing systems have come a long way in DC, from punched windows and stick-built curtain walls of the past to contemporary unitized all-glass curtain walls and specialty custom glazing systems. This panel will explore the many facets of architectural design, engineering, and construction of modern glazing systems in the Washington, DC market.

2. Opacity: Beyond the Bricks and Mortar—Envelope Performance in ContextWhat makes a modern exterior wall system unique and stand out amongst the concrete boxes and mass masonry walls of Washington, DC’s past? This panel will take a fresh look at opaque facade systems, from barrier walls to rainscreen cavity walls and everything in between, and how these systems are designed for performance in the local climate and help to achieve the overall design aspirations of the building facade.

3.Connectivity: Where Transparency and Opacity MeetThe transition between transparent and opaque is a cornerstone of modern facade design and inextricably link one system to the other. This panel will discuss the critical interface between these systems and the careful attention to detail required not only to ensure air, water, vapor, and thermal continuity, but to allow for differential movement, tolerances of the construction trades, and to meet the architectural design intent where cladding meets glazing.
