Facade technologies are developing at a more dynamic rate than almost any other issue related to construction today with an impact on performance, sustainability, materials, fabrication, design, delivery and much more. What was once thought impossible is now an everyday reality, and the future promises accelerating change.
Presented by Enclos and The Architect’s Newspaper, COLLABORATION will bring together in a two-day event, the industry, the profession, and the academy to explore the evolution and the issues surrounding today’s high tech building envelope through case studies and lectures presented by foremost practitioners, as well as panel discussions, and workshops conducted by leaders in the AEC profession.
Aimed at architects, building owners and developers, general contractors, engineers, fabricators, material suppliers, educators, and students, the event’s panels and sessions address the transformative opportunities created by new technologies and resources. From using BIM for communicating effectively with fabricators, to energy modeling, to retrofitting practices and the latest design tools, the COLLABORATION conference offers an unprecedented opportunity to survey the possibilities of designing in the digital age.
