Your buildings are talking, are you listening?Each day our buildings and our firms produce volumes of data that can be leveraged to improve our buildings and our firms. At the heart of this year’s Building Connections Congress discussion with industry leaders will be how these leaders obtain insight from data to advance design and move their companies into the next wave of the economy. Core to much of the disruption and move into this new economy, dubbed the “experience economy,” is a deep understanding and regard for data that exposes previously undetected or undervalued insights. Join your colleagues and industry leaders in a high-level discussion about how a data-driven mindset will lead to new ways of thinking about buildings and the practice of architecture.
