Buildings of the Future
Science fiction or science fact?
The world is changing at an exponential rate and science fiction is fast becoming science fact. We are moving toward an increasingly digital, interconnected society and with it comes the realisation that everything we know will change. Compared to other industries, the built environment has been slower to react to this change. In some ways, we’ve been in ‘catch-up’ mode, clutching tightly to the ‘status quo’. The reality is that operational and construction functions, activities and experiences, as well as expectations around performance are evolving and so too must the built environment. Disruptive technologies are also driving home the fact that we cannot predict the future, but we can ask the right questions.
