Our next conference takes place on Nov. 24th, 2017 in Detmold.
Since the beginning 21st Century climate change and globalisation have influenced the actual world and all societies tremendously and have also affected the way we are building. Safety and security requirements are increasing and consequently influencing the design of the building envelope.
‘Resilience’ describes the function and ability of buildings and their facades to recover from or adjust easily to change; this can either be in a direct way to specific stresses forced by water, wind, fire, explosion or earthquake but also in an indirect way seen as a general ability of adaptivity to different changes.
These issues will be addressed at the conference facade2017 from different academic and professional perspectives.
