IABSE Future of Design NYC is an annual symposium to energize and provoke discussion in our community encompassing the architecture, engineering, design, and construction industry. The symposium is interactive and broad in its reach, aiming to maximize exchange of innovative ideas through a forum for education and dialogue.
Future of Design NYC’s theme in 2019 is For the People. As a response to the growing desire for design-based action to improve life in the public and social sphere, program sessions examine the collective role of built environment professionals in today’s social, environmental, economic, and political climate. Conversations also look inward at to understand the sustainability and equitability of the industry’s work, and how to empower future engineers to take on a greater voice in built environment initiatives.
The program features presentations and panels that provide critical discussion of local and international projects, as well as debate on approaches that underpin structural engineering and architectural design. Emerging and established voices involved in the creation of the future built environment will provide both technical and qualitative insights on different facets of the theme.
Program sessions address the following topics:
- Risk, Resilience, and the Environment
- Metrics for Evaluating Successful Design & Construction
- Life-Cycle Engineering of Structures
- The Public Sphere: New Civic Spaces
Symposium attendees will also participate in a workshop to explore potential roles in future public policy, adaptive reuse, and shaping the incorporation of technology in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry.
