The goal of the Building Performance Knowledge Community (BPKC) is to promote architects as leaders in the application of technical design for building performance; in the use of high-performance design criteria, codes, and standards; and in programming, designing and managing building performance. To advance, disseminate, and advocate—to the architecture profession, AIA members, building owners, the construction industry, the academy, and the public—design practices that create buildings that are healthy, energy efficient, and durable.
The Architect's Newspaper is producing a conference focusing on facades in NYC April 21st & 22nd. The Symposium features keynotes Odil Decq and Thomas Pfifer. Panels include Emerging Craftsmanship in Digital Fabrication and one on Hudson Yards. Workshops are day-long intensives, taught by experts from Zahner, Thornton Tomasetti, Dassault, Arup, KPF, Flux and others.
We are a TAP sponsor and do offer up to 16 AIA HSW CEUs for the two days. I realize that you are a non-commercial entity, but we think there are many valuable learning opportunities for your membership here. You may find more info. at facadesplus.com. We would be most appreciative if you could share this with your members.
