Session Synopsis:
How to expand your design capabilities and deliver exceptional architectural features.
The presenter, will outline ways that collaboration with an industrial designer can deliver an architect’s creative vision using the latest technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques. Pushing creative boundaries to deliver unique and site-specific results.
