There are many factors to consider when designing a building's façade. How does it relate to context and the activities within? Can a solid enclosure be both outwardly expressive and inwardly responsive to its environment? This session examines the architectural possibilities of façades as both creative canvas and lynchpin of a comprehensive sustainable design. Presented case studies will feature technological innovations transforming the role of façades as instruments of energy generation and eye-catching display. Even low-tech solutions can play a role in animating the face of a building. This session provides insight into the latest practices and potential of façade design for the intermediate and advanced professional. The right façade design is critical in architecture because you only get one chance to make a first impression.
