The Future of Building
Tuesday, December 14, 2010
10:00 – 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time
Presented by Phil Bernstein, FAIA, RIBA, LEED®AP, Vice President, Autodesk Industry Strategy & Relations for AEC


This one-hour webcast discusses how building, as a process and an industry, has seen dramatic shifts in recent history, most notably with the explosion of technology and digital processes. Many new thought-provoking ideas and concepts have emerged on the future of building, and most of these concepts have advanced technology at their core. Yet none of these visionary concepts could be successful without the people who power them. Please join Phil Bernstein as he addresses some of the leading ideas around the future of building, and examines the relationship between humans and technology and how this relationship will shape the future of the architecture industry.
This webcast qualifies for 1.0 AIA HSW/SD continuing education credit. During the webcast we will provide instructions for receiving credit or a certificate of completion for this session.
