Event Type: conference
Organized By: TUM Department of Architecture
Latest Activity: Sep 27
The conference addresses creative and innovative professionals and researchers at the forefront of facade design. We will discuss tasks and issues in research, design and manufacturing of high-performance building envelopes. Participants will gain new perspectives on, and an enhanced insight into developments and research in design and engineering for tomorrow’s advanced building skins.
The ne-xt facades conference is setting the focus on adaptive facades: In the same way as natural organism adapt to their environment, adaptive facades are able to adapt to changing dynamic climatic conditions.
The COST Action TU1403 ‘Adaptive Facade Network’ is an international scientific network with the aim to harmonise, share and disseminate technological knowledge on adaptive facades on an European level.
The program is organised in 4 sessions, each comprising four short lectures followed by a discussion. Researchers of the COST Action will exchange their ideas with representatives from practice.
Session 1 – New Functionalities
Increase in adaptivity of facades leads to new facade functionalities such as shape changing or adapting material properties, function enlargement by integrating HVAC systems or photovoltaics. Session 1 aims at analysing the state of the art of adaptive facades and cast a view ahead of future possibilities.
Session 2 – Digital Environments
This second session targets new digital developments and tools for the design, testing and monitoring of facades. It explores new concepts control, self-organisation, IT and the internet of things.
Session 3 – Climate Response
An optimized interior comfort and savings in operational energy is one of the main drivers for adaptivity in building envelopes. The session looks at new means of achieving and evaluating the desired performance. One important aspect is how that is done technically: By using high-tech versus low-tech solutions.
Session 4 – The Architectural Challenge
The implementation of new adaptive materials, components and facades always falls in the context of architectural design. But how are design and technology geared towards holistic new built applications? What is the role of the different stakeholders and how can the process of creating new innovative adaptive facades be organised?
