METALS IN CONSTRUCTION 2012
Advanced fabrication technology has unfolded exciting architectural opportunities. What
was once thought impossible is now reality. Together with innovations in materials, it
has enabled new facade solutions where design and function come together in almost
limitless ways. Now more than ever, collaboration between architect and fabricator
empowers each to stretch their imagination, creating challenging projects that are
inspiring the next era of designs.
The METALS IN CONSTRUCTION 2012 FACADES
CONFERENCE brings together leading designers and fabricators to explore this
collaboration through case studies of recent work and roundtable discussions. Presented
by the Ornamental Metal Institute of New York and The
Architect’s Newspaper, this one-day event is the first in a series of
conferences created to help designers and builders understand the ways in which
technology can transform design aspirations into reality. From using BIM for communicating
effectively with fabricators, to examining new resources for curtain wall design, the
conference offers an unprecedented opportunity to survey the possibilities of designing
with metals in the digital age.
