Face Time 2020: Better Buildings through Better Skins

The Facade Tectonics Institute’s biennial World Congress gathers more than 400 of the built environment’s most influential players for two full days of blind, peer-reviewed paper presentations, expert-led panel discussions, highly curated content, poster presentations, dedicated exhibition zones and exclusive networking opportunities. The World Congress provides a forum for a diverse cross-section of the design and real estate communities to discuss the innovations and advancements revolutionizing the design and delivery of the building skin.

Together, our annual Forum Series and World Congress deliver dynamic discussions surrounding the art, science and technology of the building skin with unparalleled opportunities for networking among industry innovators.
