About the Event

Join Facade Tectonics and the Ornamental Metal Institute of New York for Facade Tectonics Forum NYC - Outside the Lines: Building Facades Redefine Urban Living NYC.

Multiple emergent drivers are forcing a steep change in the performance demands on buildings, and most particularly on the facade system. These demands mandate an innovative response to issues ranging from systems and materials to design and delivery strategies.

This program will include diverse voices from the world of advanced building facade technology, showcasing new perspectives on the opportunities for innovation in the design and delivery of the building skin. 

The Facade Tectonics Forum: NYC will include a Friday afternoon speaker program with panel discussions, followed by a cocktail reception.
