Future-Ready Building: Disruptive Technology & Data-Driven Design
May 25 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

On Thursday, May 25, AIA Seattle will present Future-Ready Building: Disruptive Technology & Data-Driven Design. Through a series of lightning talks, in-depth panel discussions and eye-opening presentations, this full day forum will explore trends impacting modern buildings and what it means to design smarter.

How do we make buildings and cities future-ready, considering the shifting tech landscape and the need for human-centered design? Considering big data uses and emerging technologies, is the architect the creator or curator? Thought leaders and industry experts in the fields of architecture, engineering, design, planning, and technology will want to join this provocative conversation!

Keynote Address by futurist, Dr. Chris Luebkeman of Arup.

Seattle CEU | Beauty Matters @ Fulcrum Coffee
May 25 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Join us as designer David Trubridge looks at why beauty and art have been so important to the human race throughout time and illustrates how vitally important it has been to all cultures ever since. Without beauty there is no care, and if we don’t care enough about our environment, our environment will not care for us. David also explores why contemporary culture appears to care less about these concerns, and shows how this might be remedied through manufacturing processes that reduce environmental impacts coupled with a renewed focus on aesthetics.

Creative thinking is in demand for students and workers alike. But creativity isn’t just the ability to brainstorm and generate ideas. It’s about a process that involves multiple modes including reflection, collaboration, prototyping and sharing. The combination of these multiple activities leads to solutions for real problems.

Designing spaces to support creativity means creating environments that support a range of behaviors throughout the process. It’s important to create inclusive spaces that support many student needs and interests.

Please join us! This event is open to Members (free admission) and non-members ($25). Registration required. Click here to register.

This CEU course is approved for both AIA and IDCEC.
