 The Future Envelope 9 - Conference on Building Envelopes




We refer to Unobtainium as a material or technology which is perfectly suited for a particular application, except that it does not exist yet or is extremely costly or difficult to obtain. Unobtainium is the answer to many of our technological and architectural challenges. What type of new materials will allow us to embed new functionalities in building envelopes? Which technologies will lead to more efficient and durable construction details? What concepts or systems will lead to energy savings and higher comfort?

During the ninth edition of the annual conference, international speakers from the disciplines of project development, material technology, façade design, and architecture will share their experience and visions of the future building envelope.

The Future Envelope is organized by the Facade Research Group, TU Delft in cooperation with the Center for Window and Cladding Technology (CWCT), University of Bath and the European Façade Network (EFN)  and sponsored by industrial partners.

GLASS 5.0 - Design | Function | Emotion




The International Architecture Congress with the theme: Glass 5.0 not only presents the technical capacity of the high-tech material glass but also the glass design of the future in all of its aesthetic facets. 


Engineered Transparency - International Conference at Glasstec

The conference will take place as usual parallel to "glasstec", the internationally renowned traid fair around the theme "glass". The four-day exhibition is accompanied by some special shows and conferences. These are organized by numerous partners in cooperation with Messe Dusseldorf.

The "glasstec" next year will open the exhibition halls from 21 to 24 October 2014. Notwithstanding the previous meetings is the "engineered transparency" from 21 to 22 October 2014 (Tuesday to Wednesday) equal to the fair trade start in the CCD South. The organization of the event has started with high pressure! The Call for Abstracts will starts in October 2013.

Seminar on Structural Glass

   

The recent architectural trendsand technological developments in the glass industry entailed profound changes in the use of this material. In spite of the fact that this material has been restricted to non-structural functions in the recent past, nowadays its use has become a general practice as a structural material. The last decade has witnessed the development of various structural glass concepts, able to achieve high post-ruptureresistances. Some of these systemsinclude hybrid steel-glass elements.

This seminar aims to provide the most advanced R&D works on this field carried out in Portugal, particularly in the framework of the project S-GLASS (PTDC/ECM/116609/2010).

The seminar will be held in Exponor - Porto International Fair - Porto, Portugal, 24 October 2013, and is chaired by Prof. Paulo Cruz. For more information and registration, please visit www.cmm.pt/congresso

IX Congresso de Construção Metálica e Mista / I Congresso Luso-Brasileiro de Construção Metálica Sustentável 

The official language of the Seminar is Portuguese.

 Mini-symposium on Structural Glass: Crossing Borders
