The PowerSkin 2019 will address Digital Processes in Façade Design and Construction,
a theme which is further divided into Envelope, Energy and Environment.
The conference hosts Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Thomas Auer, TUM, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jens Schneider, TU Darmstadt, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Knaack, TU Delft, and the scientific committee are looking forward to your contribution!
At the PowerSkin 2017 more than 200 participants shared knowledge on latest scientific findings about the building skin. 36 papers on façade structure, design and environment were presented by architects, engineers, and scientists.

Your throughout positive feedback motivates us to meet again at PowerSkin 2019!
Addressing the Future of Buildings
The building skin has evolved enormously over the past decades. Energy performance and environmental quality of buildings are significantly determined by the building envelope. The façade has experienced a change in its role as an adaptive climate control system that leverages the synergies between form, material, mechanical and energy systems in an integrated design.
The PowerSkin Conference aims to address the role of building skins to accomplish a carbon neutral building stock. Topics such as building operation, embodied energy, energy generation and storage in context of evelope, energy and environment are considered.
Digital Processes in Façade Design and Construction
The main theme of digital processes serves as a connection for the three sub topics. The conference showcases presentations about recent scientific research and developments.
Envelope: The building envelope as an interface for the interaction between indoor and outdoor environment. This topic is focused on functionality, technical development and material properties.
Energy: New concepts, accomplished projects, and visions for the interaction between building structure, envelope and energy technologies.
Environment: Façades or elements of façades which aim for the provision of highly comfortable surroundings where environmental control strategies as well as energy generation and/or storage are an integrated part of an active skin.
