Technology sessions at A'19

WE110 Advanced Enclosure Detailing Workshop
June 5 at 8am | Las Vegas Convention Center | 3.75 LUs/HSW/GBCI/RIBA

Join this interactive, hands-on workshop for emerging professionals and experts alike to develop high-performing exterior enclosure details. Group discussion will focus on fundamental detailing principles followed by case study examples of how those principles are employed. 


TH201 Artificial Intelligence Is Changing Architecture. Are You Ready? (Pro Series)
June 6 at 9:30am | Westgate Las Vegas | 1.50 LUs/RIBA

Artificial Intelligence (AI) isn't poised to disrupt your practice-it's already here. Enterprising firms are using it to do everything from mundane tasks to researching its potential to create customized prefabricated living spaces that cost less. Join us for rousing discussion on the past, present, and future of AI and architecture.


FR120 How to Develop a Fabrication Lab for Architectural Practice
June 7 at 8am | Las Vegas Convention Center | 1 LU/GBCI/RIBA

This session will illustrate the advantages of integrating a fabrication lab into your design practice, providing you the ability to rapidly mock up geometric tests and construction details to benefit your process and your clients.


SA113 Functional Performance Modeling: Computational Design Augmentation for Healthcare Planning
June 8 at 10am | Las Vegas Convention Center | 1 LU/HSW/GBCI/RIBA

How would you change your design if you could connect individual experiences to physical design before the design thinking begins? That's what an operational model can do for you. Join us to discover how an operating model can serve as a more dynamic version of a functional blueprint for a building.


SA118 Trends & Key Strategies for Success in Owner-driven Collaborative Technologies
June 8 at 10am | Las Vegas Convention Center | 1.00 LU/GBCI/RIBA

Presenters from Stanford University's Center for Integrated Facility Engineering, the General Services Administration, and Strategic Building Innovation will share case studies, challenges, lessons learned, and trends in owner-driven technologies and will discuss proven methods to maximize the value of cloud-based collaborative tools.


SA220 Designing in an Age of Technology, Data Visualization & AI
June 8 at 11:30am | Las Vegas Convention Center | 1.50 LUs/GBCI/RIBA

When it comes to the planning and building of neighborhoods, campuses, and cities, our industry needs to be the strategic thought leader to whom clients, policy makers, developers, and the public turn. Join our panel of architects and engineers as we discuss the ways new design tools and technology can help us make a meaningful impact on the world around us.


SA316 3D Printing Concrete Forms: The Future is Now
June 8 at 1:30pm | Las Vegas Convention Center | 1.00 LU/HSW/GBCI/RIBA

Join us at this session to discover real-world applications of 3D printing, such as the high-profile Domino Sugar renovation in Brooklyn. You'll learn how its versatile, durable solutions provide a greater ROI while maximizing the quality of your projects.


SA318 Linking Complex Data to BIM Models: Lessons From Open-Sourced Programming
June 8 at 1:30pm | Las Vegas Convention Center | 1.00 LU/HSW/GBCI/RIBA

Join us for this session to examine the development of software that allows designers to collect complex data in the field and access it using a custom mobile/desktop application that interfaces with conventional BIM platforms. As you'll see, this software development process also offers an opportunity to think critically about what can be learned from the open-sourced, collaborative nature of the computer science industry.


SA320 Ready for Robots: Technology-Infused Design
June 8 at 1:30pm | Las Vegas Convention Center | 1.00 LU/HSW/GBCI/RIBA

Join this session to explore how robotics, simulators, and automation can influence a building's design and operational functionality. You'll learn how architects are finding inventive ways to integrate technologies into buildings to improve learning outcomes, patient safety, building functionality, and efficiency.


SA402 BIM to 3DS Max to VR
June 8 at 3pm | Westgate Las Vegas | 1.50 LUs/RIBA

A live demonstration will be projected to show the VR environment to understand what it's like to work in a VR environment. Since 3DS MAX will also take other 3D models, this VR workflow is not only limited to people or firms that are using Revit. We are only using Revit as an example of how to take advantage of the BIM model to help us in setting up a sophisticated VR scene.


SA408 The AIA Innovation Awards
June 8 at 3pm | Westgate Las Vegas | 1.50 LUs/RIBA

Join this session to discuss the achievements of award winners, current professional trends, and the implications on everyday practice. The awards jury and leadership from the Technology in Architectural Practice (TAP) Knowledge Community will share innovations from all aspects of practice and across the entire project lifecycle.
