3D printing has progressed to a point where architects can design and print custom finishes and furniture through an online platform. Digital twin technology is becoming a vital component of infrastructure design and asset management, and is expected to spread into other areas of architecture in the near future. These and a host of other technologies also hold huge potential to support the drive for sustainability in the architecture and construction industries.
In this issue, we explore the adoption of transformative technologies in architecture and construction, and find out how they will impact the industry at a time where efficiency and sustainability matter more than ever.
Technology firms are known for commissioning some of the most innovative architectural projects, their drive to define the future of work through cutting-edge office designs backed by significant budgets. We explore the impact of the tech campus on urban environments looking at the examples of the King's Cross tech hub in London and Microsoft's new Herzliya campus in Israel.
We also check out innovative architecture projects putting sustainability at the heart of the design, from high-tech corporate headquarters to desert villages. Plus, we find out how public spaces can be made safer and more inclusive for everyone with a new approach to design, according to research by Arup and the University of Westminster.
