Registration Open: Facades+AM Morning Forum in D.C. is just a month away!


W&W Glass LLC will be attending and is officially sponsoring the Facades+AM Morning Forum in Washington D.C.! 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—this time tailor-made for the Washington, DC area.
  
PROGRAM
 
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 to Washington, DC for the third time.

9:50 – 10:55: 2. TRANSFORMATIVE RESKINS: ATTRACTING NEW OCCUPANTS

11:10 – 12:15: 3. COMPUTATIONAL FACADE DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE

Building facades have evolved throughout the years from empirically-based, load-bearing, mass masonry facades, to modern, lightweight and with an immeasurable variety of geometric and material configurations. But how do we efficiently analyze and engineer these complex geometries to balance technical performance requirements with aesthetics, constructability, and cost?
