Now, more than ever, our world is changing. The rapid advancement of technology paired with globalization and uncertainty of the climate future is disrupting how we will work and live. How we design and make things will be drastically different with what we know today.
In the new economy, we will leverage new skills as architects and allied professionals to gain relevance - where empathy and engagement shapes how we design and practice - anticipating, adapting, and innovating the built environment to improve our quality of life and success for all.
AIASF NEXT: Evolution 2017 will be the forum for this vital conversation and showcase the work and Thought Leadership of the AEC Industry’s best ideas to move us forward. Join us for this intimate and unique day of learning and networking with the leading design professionals at the forefront of the movement.
