LEAF International 2019
Architecture for Future Generations, this is the 2019 theme for the LEAF International Forum taking place in Berlin, Germany, on the 23rd and 24th of October 2019. The two day conference will dissect this topic at length to offer attendees new insights on what the future will entail for the architectural industry. Among the topics of discussion will be sustainability, technological innovation, best practice, smart building/ cities, the relationship of workspace design and employee performance.
Sustainability may mean different things to each individual, however, the commonality amongst these wide range of definitions is the need to maintain resources and avoid any depletions that may impact the future generations. In this respect the conference will be addressing the role played by architects, designers, developers, planners, interior designers and government officials in preserving the environment: climate control, pollution reduction and energy consumption management. The discussions will then move on to cover the impact of technological innovations like IOT, AI and VR/AR in the design and creation of our built environment. The two-day experience will finish with a global overview of the industry, future trends and predictions.
