From a new generation of digital tools to harnessing the power of AI to advance the built environment, the architectural field is facing a gravitational shift in the way we approach the business of design and construction. Industry professionals are having to navigate monumental challenges such as labor shortages, the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain issues, economic instability, privacy concerns, and the climate crisis. At the same time, design professionals have never had so many advanced tools at their disposal, whether cloud-based platforms that facilitate intensive communication and collaboration or sophisticated virtual modeling capabilities and new software for reducing waste and carbon emissions on their projects. The Business and Technology of Architecture Academy highlights trends in architecture, including the increasing use of digital tools and platforms, which are giving firms—large and small—a competitive edge to navigate a complex landscape and increase return on investment.
