Lunch & Learn After Facades+AM


The Great Outdoors: New Growth for Ceramics

Lunch will be served and CEU credits will be provided.
Directly follows the Facades+AM morning forum.



CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS

We often think ceramic tile when in the arenas of kitchen & baths, but exciting developments in the sector are positioning tile to be the go-to material choice for exterior cladding and paving solutions in 2017. From gauged thin porcelain panels to ½” thick pavers, ceramics now have the perfect formats and performance to tackle the external skin and landscape of your projects.

In this session we will discover together the basics of these new formats from every angle including; production methods, baseline performance details, industry standards present and future, systemic design applications, impacts to building performance as well as installation methods and contractor adoption rates. Ceramics have applications far beyond showers and backsplashes today, in fact with the proper application of these new innovations; tile can become an integral part of your next building’s functional systems while offering unified design across thresholds inside and out.

Program

The rapidly developing technology of high-performance facades has emerged as the key to building integration, and central to the realization of resilient buildings and a sustainable built environment. The building skin combines attributes of appearance and performance like nothing else in architecture. There is much to discuss. We invite you to join the conversation as we bring this forum to Austin, Texas for the first time ever.

1. Digital Design and Fabrication Frontiers

Building facades have evolved throughout the years from empirically-based, load-bearing, mass masonry facades, to modern, lightweight and with an immeasurable variety of geometric and material configurations. But how do we efficiently analyze and engineer these complex geometries to balance technical performance requirements with aesthetics, constructability, and cost? Hear about new techniques for fabrication that are just hitting the market and what is coming on the horizon.
