Facades are now recognized as being ever more important in a post pandemic world with rising expectations for durability, resilience and environmentally responsible performance.

Canada continues to experience rapid population growth and the increasing demands for building development are challenging our capacity to deliver the high-performance buildings we need for a sustainable future. A number of critical issues for facades are emerging for the design, fabrication and construction professionals needed to deliver robust facades for new buildings and the retrofit of existing buildings.

Facade Tectonics Forum: Toronto will bring together three interesting and intersecting perspectives on facade education, R&D and professional practice. This is a great opportunity to keep abreast of future trajectories for facades and to network in person with colleagues.
