As we enter a new decade, design and development practitioners are tasked with creating buildings and urban spaces that are responsive to ongoing challenges like climate change and disruptive technologies. From rising sea levels affecting waterfront neighborhoods, to transit improvements driven by autonomous vehicles and the shared-economy, how should developers and architects “future proof” spaces while balancing the needs of diverse stakeholders?
Join ULI Washington’s Young Leaders Group for a panel discussion with architects, developers, and policy makers who are taking on the challenge of balancing costs and adaptability. Panelists will provide insight into how they’ve tackled rising sea levels, transportation improvements, timber structures, and solar/net-zero modular building. The panelists will share strategies on how changes to construction, climate, urban design, mobility, and land use can provide opportunities to future-proof the built environment.
Key Questions that this Panel Will Explore Include:
- How are buildings and urban places being “future-proofed” to take into consideration the impacts of climate change?
- What demographic and market shifts will influence programmatic trends in the ‘20s?
- What building technologies will become increasingly commonplace over the coming decade?
- How can these technologies improve building performance or save on construction costs?
- How will changing trends in transportation, including shared scooters, autonomous vehicles, and ride-hailing apps, change the built environment?
- What new design trends are here to stay? What design trends are going to be left behind?
