The IABSE Future of Design Conference is a one-day event aimed at engineers, architects, academics, students, contractors, fabricators or other built environment professionals held on April 29 in NYC. The purpose of the conference is to exchange knowledge on topics that are of importance to construction and design industries now and in the future and to energize, educate and inspire the next generation of designers.
This conference will also be a great opportunity to 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.
Each ticket includes access to lectures & workshop and breakfast/lunch/after event-party
