The 7th international AFR Conference will take place at the Azrieli School of Architecture
at The David and Yolanda Katz Department of the Arts, Tel Aviv University, October 2020.
Previous conferences have defined research into architectural finishes as Architectural Paint Research (APR).
We believe it is time to expand the definition of our research to include all architectural finishes.
The current conference we will be addressing it as Architectural Finishes Research (AFR).
As Always, The conference will be hosting a number of sessions, as well as a day of tours and a gala reception.
