A blind peer review process is currently underway for the Facade Tectonics Institute 2016 Annual Conference and inaugural World Congress. “The response to our call for papers exceeded all expectations,” says Doug Noble, the Institute’s managing director. “We received hundreds of abstract submissions addressing a remarkable range of building facade topics. We anticipate a truly extraordinary conference.” The two-day summit will include speaking and poster presentations, panel discussions, exhibitors and workshops addressing the theme Face Time: The Emergence of Facade as the Integrative Factor in Holistic Building Design. The event is scheduled for October 10-11 in Los Angeles.
