PROGRAM
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 Seattle.

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 novel forum into the heart of the Pacific Northwest.

Moderator: Kerry Hegedus (NBBJ)

Presenters: Carsten Stinn (Perkins+Will), Jim Cutler (Cutler Anderson Architects), Kerry Hegedus (NBBJ)

Bullitt Center is a much lauded milestone in green building evolution, but what message does it bring to the broader construction marketplace? Here, this Living Building is used as a vehicle to explore sustainability opportunities presented by buildings and their skins.

2. BRIGHT LIGHTS BIG CITY: DAYLIGHT AND GLARE IN THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT

Moderator: Kerry Hegedus (NBBJ)

Presenters: Kjell Anderson (LMN Tech Studio), Michael Gilbride (University of Washington)

Daylighting is often seen as the low-hanging fruit of building energy efficiency gains, but the practice is a delicate balance of often competing considerations that mandates a holistic, integrated approach to facade design.
