IABSE Future of Design NYC 2020 Symposium

IABSE presents Future of Design NYC for the fourth time in September 2020. Join us for a series of events dedicated to synthesizing new ideas and discussing active issues in the engineering and architecture community!

The theme of Future of Design NYC 2020 is Acceleration & Deceleration . Designers and related built environment professionals are often caught between the fast-paced flexibility that a project demands and the slow pace of change of industry practices. This year’s program will evaluate the effects of acceleration on the built environment and on designing with social responsibility; it will also explore ideas and innovative practices that developed as a result of - or in an attempt to better harness - those shifts. It will approach these issues from perspectives of both engineering and architecture, in order to contextualize designers’ voices in transformative built environment initiatives.

FoDNYC 2020 will occur as a series of 5 events including an interactive workshop hosted online, from September 15th - 29th. Check our website for complete program info and updates. Tickets are now available!

To ensure the webinar link gets emailed to you, we strongly recommend registering for the events at least 24 hours before they take place.

In order to make FoDNYC more accessible for our audience this year, we have adopted a Pay-What-You-Wish ticket price. Net proceeds from our ticket sales will be donated to charities supporting architecture and engineering education initiatives.
