2015 AIBC Annual Conference: Discover the Disruptive Trends Influencing Professional Practice
September 9, 2015
October 29, 2015 – 3:30-5 p.m.
What theoretical, technological, social or economic innovations are disrupting existing professional practices? What effects are these innovations having in current practice? What long term changes are likely to come of these new ways of thinking about, designing and producing architecture?
This plenary panel will discuss developments that have gone from an idea to reality in a few years (often without us noticing) but with long-term effects for the profession and practice of architecture. These changes often start out small in unrelated fields of industry or academia or as a ground swell from within the profession itself (as an example the rise of New Urbanism). One thing is sure; architecture won’t be the same after these influences arrive.
