Panel Discussion

30 October 2019
2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

The core factors influencing the design and development process for tall buildings have evolved significantly over time in response to changing user needs, cultural shifts, emerging technologies, in addition to seemingly intractable issues such as climate change and economic uncertainty. Professionals from a diverse set of disciplines will discuss their views on the drivers for tall building design 50 years in the future, and how technologies and design approaches will need to evolve to address both current and future needs.
