New Virtual CEU Session: Next-Gen Façade Design

Presented by Construction Specialties – September 20, 2023 – 1:00pm ET/12:00pm CT– AIA 1 LU/HSW


Today’s commercial and mixed-use buildings demand innovation and creativity. They’re bigger and taller than ever before, need to accommodate an ever-growing list of amenities, and in cities, they need to fit where space is at a premium.

Architects must be creative in meeting these needs, but they also have the unique responsibility of working with building owners to add pieces of functional art to the skyline — buildings to be proud of, that complement their surroundings yet stand out on their own.

Enter facade design. This entry-level course seeks to educate architects on the future of facade design — how to put the next big trends into practice by taking products typically designed to protect a building from sun, wind, and rain, and use them to enhance design and create visual interest.



1. Discuss design trends commercial facade innovation and the future of creative facades.

2. Describe considerations for ensuring the process of creating commercial facades, from design
to execution, leads to a design outcome that is efficient, effective, and safe for occupants.

3. Examine real-life project case studies to understand facade challenges and the solutions that
were created to not only provide protection from elements but also to elevate building

4. Explain how to balance form and function in facade design to ensure that decorative
elements are also structurally sound.
