CAADRIA 2022 - Post Carbon

Keynote Roundtable 2
Urban / Systems

Please join us for this free face to face panel discussion of CAADRIA 2022.

Are digital tools and platforms in the AEC industry only for developers to increase profits or do they have potential in creating an equal and just city? Over recent years AEC platforms have gained global prominence and raised millions of dollars of capital. But not only overseas, local Sydney AEC platforms have positioned themselves successfully on a global market and started interrupting the AEC sector. Focus of these platforms are in: “revolutionises the way property professionals find, assess and design sites. Transform your months’ long process into a ten minute analysis” (Archistar, 2022), “conducting site analysis in real time with architectural design” (Giraffe Technology, 2022), or to provide “an end-to-end digital platform that provides the property and construction industry with insights and clarity never experienced before” (Podium). But do they address the UN’s SDGs and help with a post-carbon future? If they do so, what tools exist for improving the urban condition? Where are future directions and initiatives in urban design and what are current and future obstacles? 

The discussion in this face to face panel aims to unpack the opportunities within digital transformation and disruption of the AEC sector towards a sustainable digital approach by inviting a panel of PropTech and RealTech CEOs, sustainable experts, and community activists. We want to discuss innovation potentials through synergies between computational creativity, environmental science and digital technology and disruption. Outcomes of this discussion could contribute to pressing but interrelated issues of property ownership & public space; thermal comfort, floods, and/or bush fires; and data and/or machine learning.
