Event Description

“What’s next?” What developments in the area of façade engineering are expected in the
next years? How do energy-efficient building envelopes work in the future? Will they be the
adaptive high-tech component? Does the use of digital planning and manufacturing
methods have an impact on the realization of our building envelopes? These questions and
more will be part of interesting discussions at the international conference Façade2016.
Renowned engineers and architects will introduce newest trends, developments and
technologies related to the building envelope.
The conference is conducted within the framework of the European Facade Network (EFN)
and the European research project COST TU1403 “Adaptive Facades Network”. The last
conference at the KKL Lucerne in 2014 attracted some 200 engineers, architects and façade
planners, who were treated to some highly relevant presentations and took part in
lively discussions.
After the presentations, we will meet for networking and refreshments on the Rooftop
Terrace of the KKL.
