The Changing Equation of Power: Design Ideas, Decisions and Realization
Innovation in project delivery and technology blurs boundaries between traditional roles in design and construction. As roles shift, a new focus is emerging on the fundamental contributions which enable buildings and infrastructure to serve society – the power of the design idea, the power of the informed project decision, and the power of the concrete realization of the project.
As we step across boundaries and displace old metaphors, will we devise new methods for ideas to be created and evaluated? Will technology augment knowledge and improve the way we make decisions? How will risk in project realization be reduced or reallocated? Ultimately, how will this power struggle between ideas, decision-making, and realization transform the practice of architecture, engineering, and construction?
Join us to examine this changing equation of forces impacting the way our environment is designed, built and managed. Through dialogue and workshops with other architects, engineers, and building contractors, consider emerging opportunities for participation and envision how your firm can be positioned to shape a powerful future for the design and construction industry.
