After a successful first year in 2017, the Australian Smart Skyscrapers Summit is returning in June 2018 and will be this time held in Sydney.
At the Summit, prominent local and international speakers will discuss in detail the various developments, challenges and intricacies surrounding high-rise building design and development.
Individuals from the architectural, engineering, design and development fields will be brought together to share their varying perspectives, in order to provide conference attendees with the in-depth knowledge and insight needed to design and construct world-class multi-level smart buildings.
The Summit will ultimately centre on delivering smarter and greener tall buildings, with a human-centric edge.
With an increasingly vertical society on Australia’s horizon, high-rise architects and engineers have been incorporating design elements and structural systems that aid in boosting the moods of tenants and encouraging social interaction within residential and workplace high-rise contexts.
The Australian Smart Skyscrapers Summit is intended provide practical solutions for successfully designing tall buildings that manage to be as human-friendly as they are forward-thinking, efficient and environmentally conscious.
Key projects to be analysed include Sydney’s eco-friendly, ‘timber tower’ EY Centre and the mixed-use Wynyard Place, comprising a six-star Green Star-rated office tower. Other topics will include designing buildings with the future in mind, how vertical urbanism can transform communities and defining high-performance façades within a high-rise context.
The Australian Smart Skyscrapers Summit will be held on 26 and 27 June, at Doltone House on Sydney’s Darling Island Wharf.
