Architecturally, a facade is the front of a building. It is used metaphorically to mean a "false front" or false face: what you see, not the whole story or whole answer.

Definitions:

1. The face of a building, especially the principal or front face showing

its most prominent architectural features

2. The front of a building, esp. an imposing or decorative one.

3. Exterior face or wall of a building - implies ordered placement

of its openings and other features and thus seems inapplicable to a wall

without design.

4. Any side of a building facing a public way or space and finished decoratively.

5. The way something or somebody appears on the surface, especially when

that appearance is false or meant to deceive

6. A deceptive outward appearance maintained to conceal a less pleasant or

creditable reality.

7. A false, superficial, or artificial appearance or effect -

8. A false appearance that is more pleasant than the reality:

"Behind that amiable facade, he's a deeply unpleasant man.

We are fed up with this facade of democracy."

9. An artificial front, superficial appearance, or illusion of something -

"They managed somehow to maintain a facade of wealth".

10. A showy misrepresentation intended to conceal something unpleasant.

"A person's facade is a way they present themselves to others."

No, it is not. Facade is a noun (fuh-SAHD, from French) meaning a building front, or a false appearance (front).
