Presentation title: Danger, Danger, Will Robinson! The future of the design profession

The 21st century is about silo disruption, blurring boundaries and breaking down barriers – with robust and profound changes evoking transformations at a rapid pace – whether we’re ready or not. The design industry’s impact and evolution with technology, machine learning and artificial intelligence defining the profession can’t occur in solitude if we want to remain relevant. How will an integrated approach among the worlds of technology and physical spaces shape design, and how will planning the built environment adapt? Brad will discuss challenging the status quo of the A/E/C industry and the predefined built worlds and the silos created, while pushing beyond parameters of “what is” to “what can be.”

CEO Brad Lukanic will present this topic as a keynote speaker and two workshops during the CEO Forum in Scottsdale.
