The Facade Tectonics 2016 World Congress
October 10th – 11th, 2016


The Sheraton Grand Los Angeles
711 South Hope Street
Los Angeles, CA 90017

Due to LA rush hour traffic congestion and high parking rates in Downtown LA, we strongly encourage attendees to take advantage of the LA Metro Rail. The hotel is very conveniently located across the street from the 7th Street/Metro Center station serving several major Metro Rail lines including the RedPurple and Expo lines. For more information on schedules and fares, please visit the Metro website.


The Sheraton Grand Los Angeles offers valet parking at a discounted group rate of $15.00 per vehicle per day. However, they cannot accommodate oversized vehicles – the height restriction for valet parking is 6’ 2”. There are also several other self and valet parking structures within walking distance of the hotel starting at $10/day. If you plan to drive, it’s a good idea to plan ahead using the Downtown LA Parking website.


Registration will open at 7:30am. Please bring a photo ID to present at the registration desk. You do not need to print your confirmation email. After checking in, you will receive a name badge that we request you wear for the duration of the conference. The first session will begin promptly at 8:30am, so please plan your arrival accordingly.

A buffet lunch will be provided each day. In addition, there will be a coffee and tea service with light snacks available during the breaks.


In order to receive AIA:CES credits for attending the congress, you will need to revisit the registration table after the final session each day to fill out a short registration form. Please make sure you have your AIA number available, without this information your credits may not be processed.
