DAY 1, October 9
Future of the City

Experts predict that by 2050 the world`s population will increase to 10 billion people and the issue of overcrowded cities will be one of the most pressing. According to the leading architects, human oriented design will take the very first place. Only grasping the human needs is it possible to design a competent and sustainable space. Data analysis, machine learning, innovations in the development of transport, blockchain – these are the directions that in the future will determine not only new specs in urban spaces designing, but the city as a universal unit, affecting further human development.

DAY 2, October 10
Future of Housing

One of the current problems in the designing of new spaces or the modernization of existing ones are the changing needs of humanity. Architects around the world are testing new construction materials and digital production technologies in an effort to create new housing according to individual human requirements. A promising direction is also the production of new habitats on other planets. Companies like Foster + Partners, HASSELL, AI SpaceFactory and others are designing not only the architectural part, but also researching building structures that allow to erect objects in conditions that are completely different from the Earth environment.

DAY 3, October 11
Disruptive Technologies Shaping the New Architecture

New technologies have always stimulated innovations in the construction sphere, which means that today is an exciting time for an architect. The technological advances of the digital era provide the AEC industry with many new engines enabling to move to the next stage of designing buildings of tomorrow. Drones, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, big data and the Internet of Things – these are the new additions to the tools of the architect which will change the way we build.
