Asia Façade & Glass Conference 2023

2023 Themes

Climate Change and the Future of Sustainability

The glass industry is an integral part of the built environment and as we progress towards a more sustainable future, the glass industry is also constantly evolving to embrace new eco-friendly practices and technologies.

 

Ranging from renewable energy sources and glass recycling to new window façade and glass technology, as well as alternative sources of manufacturing, the efforts to reduce carbon emissions by the flat glass industry has grown tremendously as it moves towards the goal of carbon neutrality.

 

We’ll discuss about the variety of sustainable solutions to combat climate change, how sustainability efforts have changed due to new technology and its impact on the flat glass and facade industry in the region.

 

Dynamic Glass for Smart Cities

As smart cities continue to grow and evolve, dynamic glass technology has been gaining popularity in recent years as an innovative solution for modern day cities, changing the way we view and interact with our built environment.

 

With a numerous variety and different applications of active glass technology on the market, we’ll take a look into the benefits of smart glass in the built environment, exciting new ways of integrating interactive glass into building and façade design and how smart glass can also enhance the overall functionality of smart cities. By creating more sustainable, efficient, and interactive urban environments, dynamic glass can help to improve the quality of life for citizens and create more livable and vibrant cities.

 

Project Development from Asian Countries Related to Glass and Façade

As many architectural development projects have been unfolding in the ASEAN region, we are often left wondering what goes on behind the scenes of these innovative constructions.

 
Architectural projects often go beyond their surface aesthetics, and these sessions will be offering a window into the unique ideologies and cultural narratives that drives their creation. From the soaring skyscrapers of Hong Kong to the sustainable, eco-friendly designs in Singapore, and the harmonious blend of tradition and modernity in China, the presentations will provide insight into the fusion of innovation, climate responsiveness, and visionary thinking shaping architectural landscapes across the continent.
