Buildings of the Future: Seeing Beyond This Century

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We will present collective views of future buildings and the potential for groundbreaking technologies and trends that could revolutionize the built environment. The target audience is forward thinkers in the building industry and related fields. During this session, we will explore a future where buildings are self-aware and continuously anticipate and react to changes in weather, time of day, and occupant needs to optimize energy and water use and contribute to a cleaner environment. Vision inspires greatness. A future building vision will help us develop innovative strategies and solutions towards a future where buildings become truly assets.
