Symposium on Facades: Manufacturing and Design

Symposium on Facades: Manufacturing and Design

February 9, 2017

On 27 August 2015, we organized  and moderated the symposium titled Skin New York at the Harvard Club of New York.

Our aim was to ignite a conversation among industry leaders from the engineering, fabrication and architectural sides about the importance of collaboration in an era of increased complexity of building facade systems, especially with the challenges of building in New York.

Our discussion has proven its timely importance and was left to be  be continued in a follow up symposium.

The presenters included: Bertram Beissel from Atelier Jean Nouvel, Robert Otani from Thornton Tomasetti, Mic Patterson from Enclos, and Eric Verboon from Buro Happold.

A full synopsis is available on the CTBUH website.
