Façades – Desire and Reality

Prof. Hans Nickl spoke about “Façades – Desire and Reality” in his opening speech at the second GFF Practice Days in Karlsruhe. GFF stands for glass, windows and façades. Building industry tradesmen, contractors and manufacturers who are involved with glass material, window manufacturing, façades and building shells, specialist planners, architects and experts met in Karlsruhe to discuss innovations and industry trends.

In addition to the presentation of several examples, such as the Kaiser-Franz-Josef Hospital in Vienna and the Derendorf Campus at the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences, Hans Nickl presented, in particular, the complexity of façade design between “tool or toy” and the apparently unlimited range of possibilities as “high tech or low tech” variants.
