SPD Insights: The Future of Building Buildings #PropTech
1 March 2017 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm GMTFree
Sometimes it can be hard to see the wood from the trees when considering the importance of our built environment, yet its impact cannot be underestimated. At this month’s event we will be looking at the new methods and technologies which are being employed when bringing new buildings to the market. From BIM (Building Information Modelling) to Augmented Reality, and 3D printing to modular construction, we will be discussing it all.
Join us for an evening of debate, drinks and networking with some of the industry’s leading thinkers.

He is a co-inventor of WikiHouse, a digital building system which is using open design and distributed digital manufacturing to radically democratise the production of homes. He also thinks, writes, speaks and advises companies, organisations and governments on housing crises, sustainable development, democratic cities and housing policy for the 21st century as well as on how open design and technology can be engaged to address some of the most critical social, environmental and economic challenges we face as a society.
