Architects, engineers and construction industry leaders have gathered to discuss new building tendencies in their respective fields.
The recently concluded quarterly Construct Knowledge Series Session found that green building is moving beyond individual products and increasingly demands an integrated design approach with a view to protect the natural environment.
During the event sponsored by Function, a marketing agency, roundtable discussion topics included sustainable building practices, industry trends and challenges, Building Information Modeling and useful technologies, as well as the Architecture 2030 challenge.
"As the market continues to evolve, we have found it is critical that [industry leaders] understand the latest trends to remain competitive," says Dana Castle, principal and managing partner of Function.
She adds that the Construct Knowledge Series allows for an exchange of views and experiences among architects, designers, engineers and contractors who are major players in the building and construction arena.
Architecture 2030 challenge is a project launched by an environmental advocacy group whose goal is to promote sustainable building practices that will reduce and eventually eliminate carbon emissions and waste by utilizing energy-saving measures.
