The façade is one of the most complex and expensive parts of the building. Not only, but particularly during a financial crisis it is thus important to rethink its role for the value of the entire building.
There are a number of questions we have to address: What is preferable - a low investment façade or an expensive high performance solution? Will sustainable façade concepts and systems pay off? How important is a user orientation approach with high comfort and high quality? Are there business models in other disciplines we can learn from or even adopt? What will be the effect
on architectural design?
The conference will sketch a picture of the current market situation and will explore new business models and product concepts.
During the seventh edition of the annual conference speakers from the disciplines of project development, material technology, façade design, and architecture will share their experience and vision of the future building envelope.
Façade Value is organized by the Facade Research Group, TU Delft in cooperation with the Center for Window and Cladding Technology (CWCT), University of Bath and the European Façade Network (EFN).
