The International Congress on Architectural Envelopes

ICAE 2018 is an event dedicated to provide better understanding of current and future architectural envelopes and their components, focusing on trends, technologies and developments.

This event facilitates the exchange of knowledge as well as showcasing projects and results, attracting experts from different fields with the aim of offering a global overview of all the factors which have an impact on the design, manufacturing, installation and use of an architectural envelope.

This is a unique opportunity to stay up-to-date and keep abreast of all the envelope sector news as well as new products expected in forthcoming years.

The previous edition focused on smart envelopes. The congress brought together over 300 researchers, industrialists and architects from Latin America and the United States, as well as different European countries.

It became the meeting point to discover the latest trends in the sector, products, solutions and success stories on the market.

This is an excellent business opportunity to share knowledge in the field of architectural envelopes and to listen directly to nationally and internationally acclaimed professional speakers.

Envelope 4.0

Envelope 4.0 is the central theme of the congress which aims to bring together and foster two aspects this year:

  • Architectural Envelope – as the main focus of the congress and the driving force connecting the seven congresses held in the last years. The latest developments regarding energy efficiency, new materials, new construction systems, etc. will be analysed.
  • Industry 4.0 – which has become increasingly important over recent years based on the need to improve manufacturing, assembly, distribution and installation processes of many products, to be competitive on the current market.
  • Aditive manufacturing (AM)
  • Robotics
  • ICTs
  • BIM Systems
  • IoT
  • Innovative materials

One more year we want to thank our sponsors, without whom this event would not make sense.
