Facades+ Los Angeles
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 Austin, Texas for the first time ever.

1. Digital Design and Fabrication Frontiers
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? Hear about new techniques for fabrication that are just hitting the market and what is coming on the horizon.

3. Austin’s Changing Skyline
Austin has rapidly gained a reputation as a forward-looking city, in part due to a vibrant approach to growth, density, and urbanization. Listen to three leading architects talk about their projects that have contributed the changing face and skyline of Austin as a truly global city.

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.
7:30 – 8:15: REGISTRATION AND BREAKFAST
8:30 – 9:35: 1. BREAKING THE BOX: THE CHANGING DC AESTHETIC
In a city where rectangular volumes of concrete and glass have been the standard, structures in the DC area are experiencing a renaissance in massing, materials, and function. Explore the building types being reconsidered and a glimpse of what’s to come in the nation’s capitol.
9:50 – 10:55: 2. TRANSFORMATIVE RESKINS: ATTRACTING NEW OCCUPANTS
Can repositioning, reprogramming, and adaptive re-use transform under-performing real estate assets in Washington into something that feels completely new but is built on existing structures? Discover how facade replacements and strategic additions help achieve this.

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?
