The Smarter Buildings exhibit will be on display at the Center for Architecture & Design March 2nd-April 15th, 2017 (1010 Western Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104)
Smarter buildings use a new generation of tools that leverage today’s data-rich environments to help create more capable, sustainable structures. The exhibit investigates a range of cutting-edge technologies in building science, from environmental controls and waste water systems to unique user interfaces and advanced construction methods. Smarter Buildings explores advancements in the field of building technology through case studies of the world’s smartest buildings.
As this year’s recipient of AIA Seattle Emerging Professionals Scholarship, architect Derik Eckhardt traveled to Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Boston, Copenhagen, Dubai, London, Portland and Stuttgart to research smarter buildings. The buildings selected for research cover a broad range of technologies. They represent arguably the world’s smartest buildings, not only by the degree to which technology is embedded within the built environment, but also in the ingenuity with which that technology is harnessed.
AIA Seattle provides the architecture community with resources and relationships to make a difference through design. We open doors, provide connections, keep our members and the public informed, and demonstrate our commitment to great design as the key ingredient for livable, sustainable places.
