The building facade system combines attributes of both performance and appearance like nothing else in architecture. Navigating the implementation of a contemporary facade system program is the single most challenging component of building design and construction. Yet, the outcome largely determines the ultimate success of a new building project or deep green renovation. Escalating code requirements, increasingly complex facade system technology, emerging novel delivery strategies, convoluted supply chains and a constantly morphing risk environment combine to challenge the most savvy and experienced building owner/developer. Facade Tectonics Forum: NYC! explores these issues with the aim of improving the facade system implementation process from the unique perspective of building ownership.
