Advanced Building Skins 2012 - Graz
"Building skins have rarely been as fascinating and challenging as they are today. They are the most interesting field in contemporary architecture. Façades and building envelopes are determining the visual identity, character and expression of architecture. The design of buildings’ skins shapes the urban environment.
The skin affects both appearance and performance in such a way that these diverse constitutive features promote new design concepts and spur technical developments for the architecture of the future.
This conference is addressed to creative and innovative professionals and researchers at the forefront of skin design. We will discuss tasks and issues in research, design and manufacturing of high-performance façades and 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."
