Join the AIA|DC Technology Committee for an informal event featuring presentations on the role and impact of technology in architecture. The presentations will be given in the Pecha Kucha format, twenty slides with twenty seconds per slide, and will cover topics ranging from project information management to immersive technology. Following the presentations, participate in open conversations about how evolving technologies are transforming the AEC industry.

Organized by: AIA|DC Technology Committee

About the committee:

The mission of the AIA|DC Technology Committee is to expand the knowledge base of the AEC industry with respect to the use of technology.  We believe that great architecture and communities arise from an institutional understanding of how the built environment affects both the individual and the collective, and we assert that technology has an important role to play in that understanding.  We believe that great spaces result from a collaborative consideration of environment, constructability and affect, and we assert that technology is vital toward that consideration.  As technology continues to evolve, the AIA|DCTC will become an agent of transformation for the building industry, encouraging architects, engineers, contractors, and owners to design, build, and occupy better cities.

Co-Sponsored by: Microdesk
