AIANY - FutureNOW: Re-imagining Practice Through Data Disruption
More than ever, data is being collected and applied to evaluate problems and deliver solutions. “FutureNOW” will explore the implementation of technology-driven advancements in the AEC industry. Through a series of presentations, discussions, and collaborations, industry leaders and emerging professionals will share insights on how a data-driven mindset can enhance the design process, quantify the value of good design, while moving companies into the future.
March 16th, 2019
Saturday, 3/16, 9am - 6pm
Center for Architecture
Continental Breakfast (9:00 – 9:45 AM)
Introduction (9:45 – 10:00 AM)
Phil Bernstein, FAIA, RIBA, Associate Dean, Yale School of Architecture
Panel (9:45 AM – 12:30 PM)
The Now: A Primer for Understanding and Adjusting to Data Disruption Data is not new to the profession; traditionally, it’s been critical to city planning and building performance. However, over the last few years, the quantity, quality, and specificity of data has dramatically improved. New technologies, like visual scripting and artificial intelligence, have become mainstream, encouraging a shift in practice towards more efficient design and construction workflows. Data has also given the AEC community the ability to more objectively quantify the value of their work. The panel will feature presentations and a discussion exploring how new technology has been implemented in practice and where it could lead us in the future.
Speakers: Shane Burger, Principal, Woods Bagot (Architectural Innovation in Response to the Digital Disruption) Erleen Hatfield, AIA, PE, LEED BD+C, Managing Partner, Hatfield Group (Thinking Big and Embracing New Technology) Onur Yuce Gun, Senior Computational Designer, New Balance (Forward Thinking)
Moderator: Phil Bernstein, FAIA, RIBA Associate Dean, Yale School of Architecture
Lunch (12:30 – 1:30 PM)
Workshop (1:30 – 6:00 PM)
The Future: A New Data-Driven Architecture The architectural profession must adapt and implement new technologies to stay relevant in a data-driven economy. During the afternoon, participants will form groups to discuss opportunities afforded by new tech in architecture. Ideas will be collected and formatted as part of a new tech implementation toolkit that will be shared with NYC firm leadership. Following the workshop, each group will briefly share their ideas during a cocktail hour.
Workshop Leaders include speakers as above and: James Brogan, AIA, RIBA, NCARB, Principle / CIO, KPF Nick Desbiens, AIA, LEED AP, Head of Digital Practice, KPF Chris Morse, VR+Computational Designer, SHoP Architects Alfonso Oliva, Director of LERA+ Charlie Portelli, AIA, RIBA, CDT, Associate Application Developer, Thornton Tomasetti Core Studio Bob Yori, Director of Business Development, EDSL & Senior Product Strategist, CRH Technology Studio
