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 | INSIDE OUT: Balancing Access to Technology with Nature and the Resulting Productivity Gains @ Legacy Workspace
Jun 28 @ 11:45 am – 1:00 pm

Inside Out is a course designed to stimulate both architects and esigners thinking about how to activate green space on behalf of forwarding-thinking clients. The course is designed to stimulate thinking around how work and place have evolved over time. The chief aim is to demonstrate through research a need for balance between our love of technology and our natural surroundings.

The course is also designed to provide real-life examples and alternatives that drive corporate design toward embedding cultural values with corporate mandates around nature and productivity, all while supporting wellness and reducing absenteeism.

RSVP to terri@legacygroupinteriors. Seating is limited.

Sponsored by Hartman LTD and Six Inch.
