The Center for Urban Real Estate (CURE) at Columbia University is hosting its first ever FormForward event for GSAPP students, faculty, alumni and the public.
The event illustrates the exciting explorations at GSAPP regarding utilizing technology in the design of architectural form particularly for high-rise development in the rapidly emerging mega-urban areas around the world. The noted architectural firms presenting their technologies will discuss the advantages and challenges of working with these advanced tools. In addition, some of the leading minds in the utilization of technology in designing and delivering the built form will discuss what might be on the horizon!
