Climate change, technology, and regulation are just some of the challenges faced by the architecture, engineering and construction industry in the design and build of modern buildings.

Topics explored are:

  • Balancing often conflicting design tensions in projects
  • The concept of defornocere ('ugly through harm')
  • The emerging role of the design manager
  • The importance of information modelling for enhanced design
  • Energy modelling and life-cycle analysis
  • Multidisciplinary building design and design trade-offs
  • Buildings and their impact on health and wellbeing
  • Circular economy in design and construction
  • Educating the future generation of designers
