The IABSE Future of Design Conference is a one-day event aimed at engineers, architects, academics, students, contractors, fabricators or other built environment professionals. The purpose of the conference is to exchange knowledge on topics that are of importance to our industry now and in the future and to energize, educate and inspire the next generation of designers. We are aiming at maximizing the exchange between participants by making use of a variety of session styles including panel discussions, short lectures and hands-on workshops. Accomplished designers and researchers will pair with emerging and innovative designers to present ideas on what the future holds for structural engineering. We will also discuss the future of our practice as a whole and how we adapt as designers to ever changing contexts with increasing complexity.
IABSE (the International Association for Bridges and Structural Engineering) is a truly global association with members in over 100 countries. The Future of Design Conference is a successful annual event in the UK and we are about to launch the first event here in NYC.
