Now more than ever before, data is being collected and applied to evaluate problems and deliver solutions.  The FutureNOW symposium will explore design and business practices that have been implemented as a result of technology-driven advancements in the AEC industry.  Through a series of presentations, discussions, and collaborations, industry leaders and emerging young professionals will share insights about how a data-driven mindset can enhance the design process, quantify the value of good design, and move companies into the future. Join your colleagues and industry leaders in a discussion of the preeminence of new technology in the future of professional practice.

Speakers:
Phil Bernstein, FAIA, Associate Dean, Yale School of Architecture; Shane Burger, Principal, Woods Bagot; Onur Yuce Gun, Senior Computational Designer, New Balance; Erleen Hatfield, AIA, PE, Managing Partner, Hatfield Group

The Now:  A Primer for Understanding and Adjusting to the Data Disruption
Data is not new to the profession; traditionally, it’s been critical to city planning and building performance design. However, over the last few years, the quantity, quality, and specificity of data has dramatically improved, and new technologies, like Visual Scripting and Artificial Intelligence have become more mainstream which has encouraged a shift in practice towards more efficient design and construction workflows.  Data has also given the AEC community the ability to quantify the value of their work in ways previously left to subjective methods.

The morning will feature several keynote presentations and a panel discussion exploring how new technology has been implemented in existing practice, new practice, and where it could lead us in the future.

The Future: A New Data-Driven Architecture
The architectural profession must adapt and implement new technologies to stay relevant in a data-driven economy.  During the afternoon workshop participants will form groups to discuss opportunities afforded by new tech in architecture.  Each group will be asked to brainstorm how firms can be encouraged to adapt.  The ideas will be collected and formatted as part of a new tech implementation toolkit that will be shared with NYC firm leadership.

Presentation
Following the workshop, each group will briefly share their ideas during a cocktail hour.
