There is more to buildings than what meets the eye. Still, the interplay between appearance and function has become an increasingly important aspect of designing a new construction. Facades and building envelopes – which form the outer skins of buildings – project image and creative intent. Increasingly, they are also understood as important environmental moderators and key influencers in project risk and commercial success.
A thoughtfully designed skin can make a new building work more effectively for its owners, occupants and environment. It can also transform the performance of an existing building, as well as provide a visual injection of life into a community, and at this event, you'll be presented for some outstanding examples.
This event is part of the Liveable City programme, which is organised by the Danish Embassy and supported by The Royal Incorporation Of Architects In Scotland as well as Construction Scotland Innovation Centre. It is also part of The Festival of Architecture.
