DesignBUILD coverage: Wrap-up of DAY THREE

Day three was the third and final day of the DesignBUILD conference, and many ideas were raised surrounding the future of design and how architecture, engineering and construction industries are changing.

Key points covered:

  • Future technology in the built environment
  • Industry changes
  • Designing healthier cities



With the rise of technological advancements at the forefront of conversation, architect and technology consultant Nando Mogollon (Central Innovation) explored some of the key drivers behind technological advancement within the design arena. Mogollon focused primarily on trends behind generative design, artificial intelligence/machine learning and BIM (Building Information Modelling) and where the future of architecture, engineering and construction technology is going and how data can be used effectively.


Professor Andrew Harris expanded on the discussion of future technology including how industries are changing. He also commented on the advancements in robotics, big data, additive manufacturing (3D printing) and intelligent infrastructure.


To conclude the annual event, Koichi Takada gave one of the final talks and covered the role of architects in naturalising cities – both nationally and globally.

Koichi Takada encouraged discussion as to how designs can be made healthier, more “human”, respectful of heritage, unique and complementary of their surroundings.

He raised the question, “Why shouldn’t Australia be the greenest country in the world?”

Do you think Australia is on track to becoming one of the world's greenest cities? Let us know in the comments.
