2 DAYS AWAY—
Register today!

8 AIA/CES  LU or LU/HSW CREDITS PER DAY—SEE WORKSHOPS BELOW

New this year!

A unique opportunity to have a daylong, in-depth dialog with with leading architects, fabricators, developers and engineers after they present their current projects as real-world case studies. You will select from morning and afternoon sessions to custom-make a daylong schedule which suits your professional goals. The Workshops will have an intimate class size, creating an environment conducive to innovation and creative problem-solving.

WORKSHOPS A – F

MORNING SESSIONS (choose 1 from the following 3)

A.  DESIGNING & BUILDING PERFORMING FACADES: No Performance – Poor Performance – High Performance?   4 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS
Markus Schulte, Arup, Coordinator; Panel: Scott Bondi, Mark Mathey, Tali Mejicovsky & Jonathan Wilson, Arup
This workshop will present a holistic view of the design and construction of high performance façade systems utilizing a first principles approach.

The discussion will be divided into 3 main topics:
- “The Ten Commandments of Building Physics” – a guide to understanding the basic principles of thermal performance in facades,
- “Unitized Systems:  The good, the bad, and the ugly” – an overview of different unitized façade systems in today’s market and how they compare,
- “Re-clad and Restore” – a look into the process or refurbishing existing façade systems.

B.  DEVELOPMENT OF FACADE SYSTEMS FOR SUPER-TALL BUILDINGS   4 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS
Juan Betancur, , Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, Coordinator; Panel: Anthony Viola & Mostapha Roudsari, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill
This workshop focuses on the methodologies employed at Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture in developing high-performance facades systems for tall buildings. Two areas of focus that will be discussed are the curtain wall panelization for super-tall buildings with complex geometries and the investigation of overall building form as well as façade systems based on site specific environmental performance.

C.  IMPLEMENTING EMERGING MATERIALS TECHNOLOGIES   4 LU AIA CE CREDITS
Jeff Vaglio, Enclos; Bill Kreysler, Kreysler & Associates, Coordinators; Panel:
Michael Ludvik, M.Ludvik Consulting Engineers; Valerie Block, DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions; Javier Torner, Onyx Solar
Bringing together an array of material technology experts, this session will explore both the unique advantages associated with each material, as well as the challenges of introducing innovative façade technologies into architectural applications.  The discussion will include an emphasis on performance metrics for each technology and case study applications of successful implementation. The topics covered will include:
- Composites and Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP), Bill Kreysler, Kreysler Associates
- Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), Javier Torner, Onyx Solar USA
- Green Façade Technology, Dean Hill, greenscreen
- Ionoplast Interlayers, Valerie Block, DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions
- Bent Splice Plates in Glass Beams, Michael Ludvik, M. Ludvik & Co.

— PLUS —

AFTERNOON SESSIONS (choose 1 of the following 2)

E. THERMAL/ENERGY/DAYLIGHTING   4 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS
Chris Stutzki & Matt Kuba, Stutzki Engineering, Coordinators

Panel: James Carpenter & Reid Freeman AIA, JCDA& Architecture Operations D.P.C; Robert Matthew Noblett, Behnisch Architekten; Brandon Coates & Frank Fralick, The Beck Group – Dallas; Erik Olsen, Transsolar Climate Engineering
The three keywords THERMAL, ENERGY, DAYLIGHTING describe the expectation that a new façade directly utilizes the effects of the sun for the goal of an energy efficient building and, simultaneously, use light as an active part of the architecture. Architects and building technology experts will present and discuss their paragon buildings and methodologies of this emerging field of architecture and technology.

F.  MULTILAYERED FACADES  4 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS
Areta Pawlynsky, Heintges & Associates & Jessica Zofchak, Atelier Ten, Coordinators
Panel: Pavel Getov, Studio Antares A + E; Peter Simmonds, IBE Consulting Engineers; Leanora Paniccia, Atelier Ten; Michael Rantilla, Freelon
Exploring the design potentials of the building envelope as a factor controlling occupant thermal comfort is the subject of this presentation. Architects are increasingly exploring the possibilities of different materials in the context of multi-layered facades.  Projects are now incorporating layers of perforated, translucent, and opaque elements to enhance the building envelope.  What are the drivers behind these projects and what is the measurable impact of an additional layer?  What strategies have been used successfully to reduce energy use and create balanced daylit environments?  What analysis tools are available to mitigate glare and improve visual comfort?  This workshop will investigate these topics in detail by focusing on the layers of several facade case studies.

 

Daylong Special Session + On-site Visit

NOTE: Meets at Advanced Technology Studio of Enclos, then travels to Javits Center

G. FACADE RETROFIT:
The Challenge and Opportunity Presented by an Aging Building Stock     8 LU/HSW AIA CE CREDITS
Mic Patterson, Enclos, Coordinator; Robert Heintges & Robert Golda, Heintges & Assoc.; William Paxson & Mayin Yu, Davis Brody Bond;  Hamid Vossoughi, Halsall Associates; Leslie Jabs, Gensler; Alex Terzich, SHoP Architects; Carol Loewenson & Steven Dietz, Mitchell/Giurgola Architects; Risa Honig, CUNY;  Timothy McGee, StructureTone
What better place to explore this topic than Manhattan, surrounded by aging buildings badly in need of facade renovation both to improve performance and appearance. But these buildings and their facades present unique challenges. This full-day workshop will delve deeply into the various issues comprising the renovation of large commercial facades in the urban environment, particularly the retrofit of old curtainwall facades, and also the use of contemporary curtainwall technology to renovate old masonry buildings. A team of local experts will first establish context by defining the scope of the problem, then follow with a discussion of design strategies, and means and methods for implementing facade retrofit projects. A series of exemplary case studies will be presented, among them will be the recently completed recladding of the Javits Convention Center. The workshop program will conclude with a mid afternoon tour of the Convention Center.
