Architecture + Technology: Pedagogy in an Age of Disruption

February 10, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm EST


Architecture + Technology: Pedagogy in an Age of Disruption examines technology’s impact on the field of architecture beyond building-centric technology and evidence-based design. Specifically, how advancements are changing ways in which we perceive value, with human efficiency and well-being taking precedence over resource performance. How might architects more effectively measure and act upon both quantitative and qualitative data with greater consideration for the effects on human performance? How might we respond to the increasing urgency within architectural education to adapt to meet industry demands?

The symposium seeks to evaluate the current role and potential of technology, while interrogating the strategies by which it is being taught, in order to arrive at relevant modes of practice that are in tune with the disruptions that are now emerging.

Free and open to the public.
