The advanced building skins Conference 2012 focused on the enormous diversity of transparent façade architecture, on new production processes and on the vast amount of new materials broadening the design base for extraordinary building envelopes. As keynote speaker 2012 we could welcome Manuelle Gautrand, Sauerbruch Hutton, Werner Sobek  and Stefan Holst of Transsolar.
Over 160 participants from 11 different countries attended the conference hosting 36 presentations by engineers, architects, scientists and industrialists. The conference provided the opportunity to discuss tasks and issues in research, design and manufacturing of high-performance façades and building envelopes. The participants discussed material properties, design capabilities and their integration into the façade. The participants from different disciplines like architecture, engineering, science and industry were able to mingle and exchange their knowledge in a relaxed atmosphere.

If you would like to have more information about the conference you have the possibility to watch the speaches of the keynotes, to download the conference booklet or the Programme. Once again we want to thank our Sponsors 2012.
