In this FRONT seminar session, a medley of design and industry professionals talked about the shortening gap between and tighter-knit design ecosystem that is allowing for progressive built outcomes.
October 12th, 2018
Our inaugural seminar series – the FRONT Forum – presented fresh ideas and the latest insights affecting the design industry. Presented at the FRONT event, a group of truly cross-disciplinary professionals was brought together to debate the notion of a shortened design procurement and development ecosystem.
Traversing the built environment disciplines of design, construction, project and facility management, along with the ever-narrowing gap between the client and the end user – this design ecosystem asks for ever shorter lead times and new methods of development.
Max Thomson, founder of Spitfire Control chaired the session, joined by Andrew Pettifer of Arup, Ashley Dennis of Crone Architects and Koichi Takada of Koichi Takada Architects and Simone Oliver of Architectus.
The talk encompassed some of the new ways that developers are operating as the client, and how traditional barriers in built environment processes are changing.
The FRONT Forum was proudly presented by Gaggenau.
