On October 26th, the KPF Computational Design Leader spoke on a panel focusing on the impact of emerging technologies on façade design and delivery.

During the panel “How Emerging Technologies are Transforming Façade Design and Delivery,” alongside a panel of industry experts, Alan provided insight into how new regulations spur creativity, bringing more innovative solutions to markets, and how to create industry-wide data sets using collaborative digital tools that can reduce embodied carbon.

Alan was joined by Dan Reynolds, Senior Associate and AI Product Lead, Walter P Moore; Alexandra Pollock, Chief Technology Officer, Principal, FXCollaborative; and James Hickerson, Principal, Woods Bagot. Caitlin Mueller, Associate Professor, MIT Departments of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering, moderated the panel.
