Session 6E: Façades

31 October 2017

As the major building element directly exposed to the elements, façades are increasingly designed with an eye towards resiliency in the face of major wind or seismic events. These advances in façade design will be profiled and considered, along with technical innovations that are allowing facades to be built with greater complexity at larger scales.
