Louis Moreau, AGNORA’s Senior Techincal Specialist will be participating in the following Facades+ workshop:
Facades+ April 24 + 25 2014 – An ASTM Structural Glass Standard: The Need, the Philosophy and the Direction
At this year’s Facades+ workshop, participants will learn how architectural glass is a fundamentally different building material than that of its wood, masonry and steel ancestors. Primary amongst these differences is our acceptance of its predisposition to break — a price to pay for transparency. As a result, architectural glass has been largely limited to window applications, with few spectacular exceptions. This workshop will identify and examine:
- The unique design considerations of architectural glass
- Why the material has historically evaded structural standardization
- What is happening at the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) to facilitate the structural glass designs of tomorrow?
- Richard Green, Front Inc.Panel
- Michael Ludvik, M.Ludvik Engineering
- Louis Moreau, AGNORA
- Keith Boswell, SOM
- Alfonso Lopez, Sentech Architectural Systems
About the Facades+ Workshops
HONE YOUR CRAFT WITH MORNING & AFTERNOON SESSIONS–AND EARN 8 AIA HSW CEUs FOR THE DAY.
A unique opportunity to have a daylong, in-depth dialog with with leading architects, fabricators, developers and engineers after they present their current projects as real-world case studies. You will select from morning and afternoon sessions to custom-make a daylong schedule which suits your professional goals. The Workshops will have an intimate class size, creating an environment conducive to innovation and creative problem-solving.
The goal of the Facades+ conference is to focus on the design and performance on the next generation of facades. We provide proven insights on how to make your ideas become reality. We bring together some of the world’s most productive building professionals and leading researchers to share insights on how facades ideas are brought to life.
Facades+ is the leading conference on performance and design of the building envelope. The unique cross-over of attending professionals brings together a unique brain-trust from the fields of architecture, engineering, construction, fabrication, development and education. Be inspired and learn how to innovate all steps of facade implementation—from systems and materials to designs and delivery strategies.
