WELCOME

November 6-11

Boston Convention and Exhibition Center The Boston Society of Architects/AIA is a nonprofit organization committed to professional development for its members, advocacy on behalf of great design, and sharing an appreciation for the built environment with the public at large. More at architects.org.

ArchitectureBoston, a quarterly publication of the Boston Society of Architects/AIA, explores the ways architecture influences and is influenced by our environment and our society. Advertising: sales@architects.org.

WELCOME TO ABX! Every year during ABX, I look forward to learning the unexpected from interesting seminars, speaking face to face with product reps, and running into seldom seen old friends. This year it is especially exciting because we are colocating with Greenbuild. In 2017, the producer of ABX, the Boston Society of Architects/AIA, celebrated its sesquicentennial anniversary. That’s 150 years of innovation, collaboration, and leadership. Nowhere do these attributes gleam brighter than at ABX where each year New England’s design and construction industry comes together to share insight into new technologies, professional development opportunities, products, services, and other strategies that drive business. Collaboration is especially at the forefront of ABX this year, as we partner with Greenbuild to deliver a powerhouse of content and experiences to our more than 25,000 combined attendees, many of whom may be coming to Boston from one of dozens of countries around the globe. Attendees may find themselves cultivating existing relationships while greatly expanding their professional networks, particularly among those who share a passion for building green—and in these times, that network runs deep and its passions run high. The co-location with Greenbuild presents an exciting opportunity to enjoy shared access to the more than 800 vendors on connected show floors; a workshop program packed with big ideas backed by realistic solutions and strategies; exciting plenary remarks and summits; tours; demonstrations; and of course, parties and receptions where we can relax, rekindle our collective energy, and introduce our visitors to the collegiality of Boston’s AEC community. This year, we are delighted to share the quest for design excellence and the power of knowledge with our Greenbuild colleagues as we assemble for a few days together in Boston. Josiah Stevenson FAIA, Leers Weinzapfel Associates 2017 BSA President

The Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA) reached its sesquicentennial anniversary in 2017. To celebrate its history as its gaze turns toward the future, each week throughout the year the BSA will publish a new essay from a leader or ally of the organization. An exhibition focusing on the BSA’s achievements over the last 150 years is mounted at BSA Space.

SHOW FLOOR DEMONSTRATIONS AND INSTALLATIONS IMMERSIVE VISUALIZATION Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) in AEC have come a long way in the past few years. Come see firsthand, how many different firms are utilizing VR and AR in different stages of the design process. Talk to the people responsible for generating content in their firms, and discuss how this could inform your own practice. We will have over 10 companies showing off demos, in 4 hour shifts, so come back often to hear different perspectives, and talk to new experts.

THE QUAD—HOSTED BY WHAT’S IN The Quad Competition is an international call for a social space installation hosted by WHAT’S IN, a multi-disciplinary research initiative that advocates for urban density and housing affordability through design and policy. This year, the Quad focused on design proposals that captured the essence of social sustainability by addressing the various factors contributing to the three pillars of sustainability: Environment, Economy, and Equity.

DESIGN TECHNOLOGY THROWDOWN Introducing the Design Technology Throwdown—a first-of-its kind—competition where teams will face off to see who can design the best solution to a mutual design problem. A champion will be crowned for the best use of contemporary technology to develop, document, and validate their design. Go to abexpo.com/register to register for the Throwdown.

PHOTO EXHIBIT The ABX Photo Exhibit celebrates New England architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design while promoting New England design practitioners to prospective collaborators and clients of all types. Photos are selected from a diverse representation of design firms, project types, project sizes, and locations. Selected photos are exhibited in a custom display from November 8–9, 2017 along the aisles of the ABX exhibit hall.

JOIN MAKETANK in supporting the maker culture revolution! The mission of MakeTANK is to create a collaborative environment to research and experiment with ideas in physical form; improving design quality, delivery, and material understanding. This years installation theme is "No Tools Required". Like at ABX 2016, composite materials will continue to be investigated, with a sharpened focus on minimal assembly and minimal waste.

EXHIBIT HALL HIGHLIGHTS

OPEN ARCHITECTURE COLLABORATIVE BOSTON The Open Architecture Collaborative (OAC) booth will feature images and models of projects of the Boston chapter, both completed and “on the boards” as well as information about the organization. The Boston chapter is part of a global network providing free architectural, design and planning services to communities in need locally and throughout the world. Also featured at the booth will be a unique 18’ diameter x 19’ high bamboo structure, based on the Warka Tower* concept. The inside of the structure will be used for workshops and presentations of the work of the OAC, particularly the work of the Boston Chapter. The workshop described in the inset will be presented each day. Attendees can register through the ABX registration system. *Warka Tower is a vertical structure designed to collect and harvest potable water from the air, providing an alternative water source for rural populations that face challenges accessing drinkable water. (http://www.warkawater.org/home2/)

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE OPEN ARCHITECTURE COLLABORATIVE Presented by members of the Boston chapter

Open Architecture Collaborative (OAC) provides pro-bono architectural and design services for communities in need, locally and in the developing world. It also acts as a facilitator for the provision of such pro-bono services by other individuals, organizations and firms. In this workshop, provided at the OAC booth on the ABX/Greenbuild exhibition floor, members of the OAC Boston chapter will describe the work of OAC and explain how the organization operated both locally and internationally. Included will be an overview of how OAC is contributing to the recovery effort in Texas and Louisiana after the devastating floods of tropical storm Harvey. Also included will be descriptions of several local and developing world projects, including projects for not-for-profit organizations in the Boston area and several educational, healthcare and community projects in Haiti and Nepal. The workshop will focus on similarities and differences among these varied projects and how they are designed using volunteer design teams. Also discussed will be the challenges and rewards of providing free services to communities in need in different parts of the world. Speakers:

Members of the OAC Boston chapter

SESSION DESCRIPTIONS WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 8 WE01 | PRACTICE

Review of the 2017 AIA Contract Documents Updates 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU|HSW In 2017 the American Institute of Architects (AIA) updated its contract documents as part of its regular 10-year revisions. These well-regarded, industry standard agreements take into account recent developments in the design and construction industry. This program will identify and review the most significant agreement updates that affect design professionals including a discussion of the Owner-Architect Agreement (B101 2017) and Architect/Consultant Agreement (C401 2017). Attendees can expect to learn about the modifications made to the 2017 agreements and the implications to the industry. The focus of this program is to examine the updated AIA contract documents and provide critical analysis for design professionals regarding the 2017 changes to the B101 and C401 agreements. Gwen Weisberg, Esq, Partner/Attorney, Donovan Hatem LLP

WE02 | CITY LIVING

Amenity Space Wars: The Battle to Offer the Finest 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU Why are communal amenity spaces so important to residential living? With the urban housing market on the rise, factors other than price and location are playing a bigger role in the decision to rent or buy in and around our nation’s cities. Incorporating communal amenity spaces in the design or redesign of residential buildings has been integral for building owners to keep up with the competition. Thoughtfully designed indoor and outdoor amenity spaces boost the marketability of a building, present the high-end lifestyle residents desire, provide additional living space outside the walls of individual units, and offer environmental benefits. The panelists will discuss how building owners, interior designers, and landscape architects work together to develop a successful and competitive amenity package and to provide a seamless transition between the interior and exterior spaces. John Copley, ASLA, President, Principal, Copley Wolff Design Group, Inc.

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 8 (CONT.) WE04 | COMMUNITY

The “New� City of Presidents: Revitalizing Historic Quincy Center 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU The City of Quincy is currently experiencing a development renaissance. This revitalization is evident through the current transformation of traffic-leaden Quincy Center into the Hancock Adams Green civic space, a project that has served as a catalyst for much of the change in the area. Join the Mayor of Quincy, a developer, an architect, and a landscape architect who are a part of the transformation of this historic downtown and learn about the effort that is making The City of Presidents a destination for new development and community activity. Speakers will participate in a panel discussion about the development work to date, the opportunities and challenges experienced on various projects, and the potential for additional projects in the future. Richard Houghton, RLA, Senior Associate, Halvorson Design Partnership Thomas Koch, Mayor of Quincy, City of Quincy James Edwards, Principal, Holmes and Edwards Architects Lisa Serafin, Principal, Redgate

WE05 | DISRUPTION

Architecture Disrupted: Transforming an Evolving Industry 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU|HSW Technological advancement is disrupting the conventional fee-for-labor business model of architecture. We must adapt and transition from narrow technical experts to broad social thinkers and doers, who actively understand and help to shape our environment, economy, and culture. This affords us new opportunities for business development; such as product design, software development, acting as an incubator, and becoming an equity partner. This session will explore the ways the industry is being disrupted by new fabrication techniques and how designers can capitalize on those advancements by exploring alternative business models while minimizing the associated risks. Brad Prestbo AIA, CSI, Senior Associate, Sasaki Associates Gerry Gutierrez AIA, CDT, Senior Associate, Sasaki

WE06 | ENVELOPE

When Do All-Electric Homes in Cold Climates Make Sense? 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU|HSW With well insulated envelopes and newer heat pumps that work even in cold climates, more designers and developers are moving away from fossil fuels towards all-electric buildings. This can certainly save infrastructure costs, but what is the effect on operating costs? What about comfort and reliability? This workshop will present research findings and best practices for new air-source heat pumps (both water heating and space heating) as well as several case studies where designers chose to forego on-site fossil fuels. Some of these approach (or achieve) net zero energy with on-site PV. Robb Aldrich, PE, Sr. Mechanical Engineer, Steven Winter Associates, inc. Phil Kaplan AIA, Principal, Kaplan Thompson Architects

WE07 | INFRASTRUCTURE

Boston Smart Utilities Vision 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU The Boston Smart Utilities Vision is a collaborative effort pairing city government and Boston’s utility companies to offer a new model for integrated planning among energy, transit, water, and communications utilities. By improving coordination among utilities, the Vision aims to make utility services in urban neighborhoods more affordable, resilient, equitable, and sustainable. The Vision approaches public realm design and management with public works know-how to address the smart technologies, critical governance structures, collaborative partnerships, and financing opportunities essential to a new paradigm of coordination with City and utilities in a 150 acre Pilot Project district. The process and progress of the Vision will be presented in a way that addresses how cities can: (1) embed Smart technologies into the DNA of future urban districts (2) choose the right technologies to meet their goals; and (3) collaborate with the private sector and utilities City departments collaborating with the Boston Planning and Development Agency. These include the Mayor’s Office of Streets, Transportation and Sanitation, the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, the Mayor’s Office of Environment Energy and Open Space, the Department of Information Technology, Public Works Department, the Boston Water and Sewer Commission, and the Boston Transportation Department.

WE08 | MARKETING

Neuroselling: Outsmart/Outsell Your Competition Using Neuroscience 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU|HSW Your prospect is not a person, heart, or soul; it’s actually a 3-pound organ called the brain! Yet, as amazing and powerful as the brain is, it’s very primitive and predictable in how it makes a buying decision. During this session, you’ll learn the distinct process, speed, and emotional triggers needed to steer a sales decision your way. Attendees will also master the secrets and steps to help drive more “yesses” than the competition and the three keys to driving fast-action. It will also teach participants how to get to the hidden decision makers, how to get there faster, and how to drive priority. This session is a must for those who present and pitch for any company’s biggest opportunities. Bryan Gray, CEO, Revenue Path Group

WE09 | PARTNERSHIPS AND PLANNING

Public Parks on Private Land 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU|HSW A growing industry for high-tech and life-sciences start-ups is creating a demand for new development in mixed-use areas in Cambridge and Boston. As part of development agreements, owners are being required to provide public amenities often in the form of public open space. These quasi public parks and plazas need to serve both the tenants and the neighborhood residents. The panel will discuss successful strategies for designing such dual purpose spaces where the desire is to create vibrant outdoor spaces that serve those who work and/or live in the area. In this panel discussion, a multidisciplinary team will present three projects located in the Cambridgeport and Kendall Square neighborhoods to illustrate the seamless integration of public urban parks on privately-owned land—and the mutually beneficial relationship between the two. Clara Batchelor of CBA Landscape Architects LLC will present two new public spaces that were recently completed in Cambridge as part of private developments. Joining her will be Sal Zinno of Biomed Reality who will discuss the process of working with the local government and understanding tenant and neighborhood needs through the lens of a developer, and Jim Batchelor of Arrowstreet who will explore the interface between building and landscape. Clara Batchelor, ASLA, RLA, Principal and Founder, CBA Landscape Architects LLC Salvatore Zinno, Senior Director, Development, Biomed Realty James Batchelor FAIA, LEED AP BD+C, Principal, Arrowstreet Inc.

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 8 (CONT.) WE10 | PRESERVATION AND REUSE

Evolution of Big Ideas-MASS MoCA and Transformative Reuse 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU Big ideas are better when they can be tested and refined over time. The adaptation of existing structures is a long-term project which must continually transform, as subsequent generations of architecture become ripe for re-imagination, and in response to contemporary challenges. Across four decades, MASS MoCA—a small town mill complex transformed into a world class art museum-has been home to these ideas. Transformative reuse, a set of practices refined at MASS MoCA, uses techniques such as weaving, inserting, and editing architecture to create complex responses to existing buildings and new programs. The complex’s transformative reuse stands as a testament to the power of big ideas developing over time. With an eye towards tracing the evolution of transformative ideas, presenters will use the recently completed, twenty-five year master plan for MASS MoCA to demonstrate evolving approaches to design for reuse. The presentation will foreground a larger discussion about how architectural ideas themselves productively evolve as they pass between projects and designers. Aoife Morris AIA, Associate, Bruner/Cott Architects George Gard AIA, MAUD, Architect, Bruner/Cott and Associates

WE11 | WORKPLACE EVOLUTION

Girl Uninterrupted: Bridging the Gap toward Women’s Success 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU|HSW Inspired by the current spotlight on women and initiatives by Beverly Willis Foundation, Equity by Design, WAGE Project, and various grassroots organisations, this workshop will reveal gaps in the design profession when it comes to women and negotiation, career growth, and work-life balance. This will be a research-based discussion led by two young women designers in three phases: 1) data will be collected from surveys targeting young emerging design professionals in the Boston area 2) interviews will be recorded with prominent women designers in leadership positions 3) ABX workshop will present statistics and interview findings, followed by a panel discussion of young and established women professionals. The questions will address self-confidence at the work place, work distribution, negotiation fears and tactics, and office culture. The project will bring transparency to current challenges that young women designers face and create a bridge between generational perspectives in order to jump start future growth.

WE12 | PROCESS AND PERFORMANCE

Prototyping for Standardized Design and Construction: A Case Study 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU Protoype development is usually associated with a rapid-fire product development cycle. This workshop will focus on bringing a prototyping mindset into the facility design process. Most buildings constructed today are unique, one-of-a-kind structures designed and constructed over an extended time. It is rare for owners, architects, and contractors to have the opportunity to develop and fine-tune a design over the course of multiple successive projects. You have one chance to get it right. In the spring of 2013, SMRT Architects and Engineers, Martin’s Point Health Care and PC Construction embarked on the development a new, prototype medical office building. This tight team endeavored to advance the design of the primary care environment while focusing on lean concepts, flexibility, consistent branding and standardized design and construction. With each design, the team worked together through the plan, do, check, and act cycle. Three medical office buildings later, the team continues to improve the design and construction process to achieve better results. This case study will share lessons learned and strategies for developing a similar prototyping process in your organization.

WE13 | PRACTICE

The Architect’s “Means and Methods”: Changing Paradigms 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW The production of construction documents has become much more complicated since the “good ol’ days” of pencil and paper. It used to be seasoned career draftsmen were responsible for the work product. Today, with a highly educated staff and ever changing technologies such as BIM and database specifications systems, there are many ways to approach production. The end goal may be the same, but the architect’s ’Means and Methods’ have evolved. Join this session and learn from proven lean thinking and process management approaches to work better and leverage the efficiencies of today’s architectural production tools.

WE14 | CITY LIVING

Housing the Workforce: Sustainable and Communal Urban Living 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW The United Nations projected that by 2050 more than 66% of the world’s population will live in urban areas. In Boston, the population has continued to grow, with an increase in diversity racially and ethnically. As the market for luxury housing is approaching saturation, designers have not found many viable models of affordable workforce housing for our cities. This session will explore “Communal Compact Urban Living”, a potential solution to this housing problem. This initiative lowers rental cost by decreasing individual living spaces, and encourages community-building by providing social spaces that are consciously designed to enrich the urban-living experience. The panelists will describe how, with a few simple design strategies, small living spaces are not only enjoyable to live in, but environmentally sustainable as well.

WE16 | COMMUNITY

Community Resilience = National Security: The Role of Design 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW The proposed 2018 federal budget seeks to de-fund sources upon which disadvantaged communities have come to rely for assistance in meeting socioeconomic and environmental challenges, and may impact community cohesion and robustness at the neighborhood level, endangering greater resilience—and security—at a national level. The Department of Defense and DHS will likely maintain a traditional conception of “hard” security at the national level through an expanded military and cybersecurity. Meanwhile, losers include the EPA and Commerce Department, whose NOAA Sea Grant program has funded research to help coastal communities. HUD - whose Community Development Block Grants have been a reliable source for strengthening communities since George H.W. Bush - redirected post-Sandy CDBG-Disaster Recovery funds towards climate adaptation. This session will explore how community groups will need to pick up the slack of funding—with designers leading a critical emerging area of practice—in four ways: 1) Navigate multifaceted and complex needs assessments to identify critical vulnerabilities and strengths. 2) Leverage existing partnerships and develop new connections to institutional and private funding. 3) Democratize planning, strengthen local capacity, and put local ingenuity into action. 4) Reframe community resilience as a prerequisite to national security.

Slow Space: Slow Food for The Built Environment 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW McMansions are the architectural equivalent of fast food. Poor quality, made with cheap materials, bloated with fillers and chemicals, depressing to be in, built fast, and without a thoughtful design. At this session, guest speakers will advocate for Slow Space, a grassroots movement modeled on Slow Food that promotes good quality buildings, made with clean healthy materials, and built with fair labor. In this workshop participants will learn the 3 tenets of the Slow Space Movement: Good, Clean, and Fair—and see good and bad examples of each. Attendees will learn what steps they will have to take to start this grassroots movement and how to get involved. A case study from Mass Design Group that embodies all three of these principles will also be shared.

WE18 | ENVELOPE

Kinetic Facades: Inventive Architecture, Design, Fabrication 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW Architecture is typically associated with a sense of permanence, solidity, and the perception that it stands still. At the same time, architects and engineers have been intrigued for centuries by more flexibility. They have attempted to mobilize elements, to create responsive facades that react to site conditions, microclimate, and the users’ desires. Site conditions such as wind, sun, shadow or movement, and the presence of spectators might be processed and visualized in moving parts as a process of kinetic response. Kinetic mechanisms are used in the engineering world to satisfy increasingly complex requirements of sustainability and in the art world to engage with buildings and the city. An interdisciplinary panel representing the fields of architecture, engineering, public art, and fabrication will investigate case studies as well as the present and future of kinetic applications in facade design. The panelists will focus on Logan Airport’s Central Garage West Expansion by Arrowstreet and EXTECH. Further case studies will highlight innovative projects by Ned Kahn, Asif Khan, P+ Studio and soma, among others. The emphasis will be on projects that involve kinetic mechanisms, explore potential, already realized, and evolving visions.

WE19 | INFRASTRUCTURE

An Infrastructure Strategy for a Resilient Building Stock 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU A significant literature exists addressing infrastructure - public and private - in the built environment. Road networks on different scales and railway lines come to mind, as do water and sewer systems and communication networks. They all serve multiple users and frame physical conditions for inhabitation. In large capital assets such as these, control is distributed and design decisions and governance are guided by both convention and explicit regulations. Governmental entities as well as private parties are involved in complex and changing agreements, financing and management of such infrastructure systems. Increasingly, buildings with similar characteristics, serving multiple and changing users, are being built to offer space for customized user settlement. Shopping centers and office buildings, for instance, have behaved this way for some time, as have notable centuries-old buildings and building complexes that continue to retain their value while providing space for changing uses. Now residential buildings, educational facilities, and hospitals are shifting toward this mode, in what it is called a revisited pre-functionalist strategy for 21st century real estate investing. This workshop will examine developments with specific case studies, and outlines their implications for regulation, policy-making, building industry innovation, and knowledge development among the design professions.

WE20 | MARKETING

Changing of the Guard: Navigating a Management Transition 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU The only thing that is constant is change and one of the most significant changes a firm can undergo is a management transition, either internal or external via merger or acquisition. Company stakeholders shift, new talent is added and a younger generation emerges at the leadership table. Sometimes this can result in a company name change or refreshed branding. Accomplishing all this is possible while positioning the company for future growth and work — if you plan ahead. As with any complex project, a management transition requires a marketing and PR strategy and tactical plan. Often, companies prepare for a management transition several years in advance: hiring new talent, shifting roles and responsibilities, and communicating to constituencies that it’s still business as usual . Other times, leadership transition is less organic and is accomplished through mergers and acquisitions. Either way, key clients and vendors should have a heads-up to the change, providing an opportunity to strengthen the relationship for the company’s new leaders. In this session, the panelists will use real-world case studies to address when and how to begin planning for a management transition along with tips and tricks for communicating with both internal and external stakeholders.

WE21 | PRESERVATION AND REUSE

Creative Problem Solving in Historic Structures 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW Maintaining the integrity of the overall fabric of historic buildings as well as their specific components can be a challenge when there have been substantial failures or deficiencies requiring repair or renovation. Typically there are a myriad of issues that need to be resolved while staying true to the integrity of the historic artifact. Some of these include: meeting current codes that may be at odds with archaic systems; the size and placement of new structural members that work within the existing framework; providing for energy efficiency; concealing new mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems; the insertion of new materials and fixtures; and even the adaptation of the existing building to a new use. At what level are the improvements classified as restoration, repair, renovation, or reconstruction? Are there tax credits and/or governmental regulations attached to the project that need to be considered? This workshop will address various methods used to balance contemporary needs with historic preservation goals. D. Bruce Greenwald AIA, LEED AP, RA, Principal, D.

WE22 | PROCESS AND PERFORMANCE

10 years of High-Performance Homes: What Works and What Doesn’t 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW Buildings account for about 40% of the total energy consumption is the US and half of that is attributed to the residential sector. (US EIA, 2015) There is an opportunity to make meaningful reductions in total energy use by addressing the energy consumption of our homes — to rethinking the way they are designed, constructed and renovated. Extreme reductions in home energy use allow for a rooftop solar PV array that will produce as much energy as the home uses in a given year, making it a net-zero energy home. This presentation will follow the design evolution of our high-performance homes in cold climates that average an 80% reduction in Energy Use Intensity (EUI) and include both Passive House-certified and net-positive homes. As the architecture and mechanical design principals behind these projects, guest speakers will share what works, what doesn’t, and lots of pitfalls to avoid. They’ll analyze both predicted and actual performance metrics as well as construction details for the projects presented. In addition, the session will include a review of the construction administration process, which is critical for the successful execution of any project.

WE24 | PRACTICE

Construction Administration for Beginners 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW Architects must make an important shift when their work moves into Construction Administration (CA). During preconstruction they advocate for clients and design, while during CA they become impartial judges, administering the contract and making judgments that do not always favor the owner. This seminar will explore the basic tools employed during the CA process. The panelists will talk about the architect’s relationship to jobsite safety; the architect’s interpretation of construction drawings, change orders, RFIs and punchlists; and the inevitable changes that owners will request as their project approaches fruition. How will you survive your first CA job? What should you anticipate while working in a site trailer? Should you hide screw-ups? Topics will include the “master builder” archetype and various delivery methods (including design/ build, GMP, CM at Risk, design/bid/build, and public bid); emerging methodologies fostered by IPD contracts; and LEAN design and delivery techniques. The panelists will also provide case studies, potential solutions to realworld construction issues, and lessons learned.

WE25 | CITY LIVING

Re-Urbanization: the 21st Century Opportunity 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW By 2050, the world’s urban population is expected to nearly double, making urbanization one of the twenty-first century’s most transformative trends. Populations, economic activities, social, and cultural interactions, as well as associated environmental and humanitarian impacts will be increasingly concentrated in cities, posing massive sustainability challenges in terms of housing, infrastructure, basic services, food security, health, education, decent jobs, safety, and natural resources. Unlocking the enormous power and potential of existing cities to improve health, affordability, prosperity, and well-being is essential. This requires rethinking the way designers plan and build, manage, and live in existing cities to enhance their potential as economic engines and centers of cultural and social well-being while protecting the environment. The panel will explore urban initiatives happening at the international, national, and city scale. From the global perspective of the United Nations’ New Urban Agenda, to the National Trust’s leadership in ReUrbanism, to Detroit’s Future City Strategic Framework, attendees will be inspired and informed about the interwoven paths for achieving a more prosperous, sustainable, and healthier future.

Make Way for People: Design for Biking and Walking 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW Life in bikeable, walkable, compact, and connected neighborhoods allows us to enjoy better health, including lower levels of obesity, diabetes, chronic high blood pressure, and heart disease. Market demand for healthy places is also strong. There is an established positive correlation between a neighborhood’s Walk Score, Transit Score, and Bike Score and real estate value. Healthy places have the added benefit that denser, more walkable locations produce lower greenhouse gas emissions per person. National-level practitioners and advocates will present achievable approaches to designing for active mobility, with a focus on recent improvements to Boston’s public realm. The panel will also discuss best practices for bicycle parking and related facilities in residential areas, for workplaces, and at transit hubs. Case studies will include Boston’s Vision Zero campaign and designs for bike infrastructure and pedestrian improvements on Massachusetts Avenue, Longwood Avenue, and Inman Square, Cambridge.

Leverage Data and Graphics to Make A Long Story Short 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW “Storytelling” has become crucial to building and evolving successful practices, but designers still risk doing too much or nothing at all.Infographics and data visualizations can help you present complex solutions from design approaches to sustainability initiatives. Bypass “too long; didn’t read” with data visualizations that are designed from the start to be brief, easy to read on a page, screen, or wall, and organized around communicating the value in any project, completed or proposed. To get a highly visual, cost-conscious, and (increasingly) distractable audience to change existing behaviors and adopt new attitudes, you need to deliver only the most essential data, nothing more! The speaker will present infographics from two research datasets that were designed for various presentation formats. This session will discuss the pitfalls of approach, tools, and process that can lead to over-design and confusion. The speaker will show what tools, approaches, and efforts make an infographic a successful marketing tool. Michael Sweeney, CPSM, Principal, Design-Product Systems

WE32 | PARTNERSHIPS AND PLANNING

Boston’s New “Smart City”: Union Point 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW What does it take to develop a “smart city” equipped for the new reality of a sharing economy, autonomous vehicles and ubiquitous technology? Collaboration that puts town leaders and developers on the same team helps; a collective vision for building value for the region does, too. But how to implement? Union Point, the redevelopment of a 1,550 acre former Naval Air Station south of Boston has found new life through collaboration between three towns, a visionary developer, the state office of economic development, and a diverse team of experts. The developer and design team is using urbanistic development principles to guide the reuse of this site, and is drawing new, clean commercial development, and recreational opportunities to Union Point, while repurposing existing buildings, and restoring the natural site systems. This session will show how through strong public-private collaboration and the goal for environmentally and socially conscious development, Union Point is built to thrive for the next 100 years and positioned to reintroduce commercial growth to the South Shore.

WE34 | WORKPLACE EVOLUTION

The Middle 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM | 1.5 LU There are many resources and networking opportunities for both emerging and senior-level design professionals, however mid-career professionals are often underrepresented within the architectural community. At 8, 10, 12 years into their career, many architects find themselves reflecting upon their experience and reassessing their position. Are they being recognized for their growth potential or pigeon-holed in their efforts? Are they being adequately mentored, and is there a pathway toward the advancement they seek? This time presents a unique set of challenges, leading to a diverse set of potential trajectories. It is a time when a significant number of women leave the architectural community, when both men and women transition into other fields. In the end, this group of professionals is often lacking resources and a structured network of peers at a time when their future is most malleable. Should they continue their growth as an architect? What are alternate career paths available? Can they grow within their current environment or must they venture out to define a different type of work experience? This seminar will discuss a range of common issues, concerns, and opportunities for mid-career design professionals, seeking to find a forum through which they can advance their career.

WE35 | PROCESS AND PERFORMANCE

Evaluating Urban Excellence: Inside the Rudy Bruner Award 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW The Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence (RBA) was created as a method of inquiry to explore “the subtle and difficult process of creating excellence in the urban environment.” Each biennial the RBA seeks out, celebrates, and shares the stories of transformative urban places that contribute to the economic, environmental, and social vitality of American cities. Unlike most design awards, the RBA’s evaluation process solicits input and perspectives from a variety of sources via an in-depth application, site visits, interviews with people involved in and affected by the project, and discussions with a jury of urban experts. Findings are documented with case studies that are published online as a resource for educators, practitioners, and students. Since 1987 the RBA has recognized and documented 78 projects from across the contiguous United States that illustrate a diversity of approaches to urban development. Each cycle of the biennial award uncovers new projects that reveal innovative tactics as well as affirm recurring themes. A moderated panel discussion with people involved in the 2017 RBA — including the program director, selection committee, designer, and applicant-will provide insight into the award’s unique selection process, the 2017 medalists, and recurring themes.

TH02 | CITY LIVING

Infill Housing: Finding Affordability in Unexpected Places 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU Many cities are struggling with housing affordability. There is huge demand for urban housing across demographic profiles and typologies — subsidized, workforce, market-rate and luxury - while land and construction costs are higher than ever. The result is an acute lack of affordable housing options in many urban centers across the country. Boston is one of the most expensive housing markets in the country and is seeking, under the Mayor’s guidance, tens of thousands of new housing units over the next decade with an emphasis on equity and affordability. ISA has led a housing practice that explores atypical, challenging infill sites for housing development. These sites, often adjacent to infrastructure, of odd shape or size, and with narrow development parameters offer unique opportunities for housing densification. These projects often are of small to medium scale, can maintain moderate prices, and integrate seamlessly with the scale of existing neighborhoods. By looking more carefully at smaller infill sites a significant number of new units can be added to the urban housing stock. General overview of such projects from a design and development perspective will be shared through a series of case studies from Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Detroit.

TH03 | CODE

Unleashing the Freedom of Design with the 9th Edition MSBC 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU The 9th Edition Massachusetts State Building Code (MSBC) adopts and amends the 2015 Edition of the International Building Code (IBC). This new edition of the code is set to be adopted as the mandatory building code in 2018. The new code provides further clarity and complexity that must be understood in addition to the many modifications compared to the 8th Edition MSBC (based on the 2009 IBC). At first glance, the new code may appear to pigeon-hole new building designs into a space hungry, cookie cutter core configuration. However, a closer look reveals a new set of design tools which introduce substantial flexibility into the building design configuration. This workshop will focus on elevator and high-rise building design from a different perspective while applying the newer edition of the MSBC. This workshop is also applicable to other jurisdictions that adopt the 2012 or 2015 IBC. Keith Flanders, PE, Senior Fire Protection Engineer, Cosentini Associates

Circular Economy: Approaches from Boston and the Netherlands 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU|HSW The “Circular Economy” is defined as an economy “where the value of products, materials, and resources is maintained in the economy for as long as possible, and the generation of waste minimized”. On a local level, the opportunities for more sustainable living are tremendous, as a small wastewater treatment facility can become part of the neighborhood’s energy supply. On a global level, climate stresses and migration crises can abate, if steps can be taken to address society’s need for energy, clean water, and food supply via local sources. The roots of the circular economy go back to the “Cradle to Cradle” movement articulated by McDonough and Braungart in their famous 2002 book. Today this approach is embedded in the United Nations’ Strategic Development Goals. During the Netherlands’ Presidency term in 2016, the European Union adopted an ambitious policy agenda towards circularity. Now the initiative within the Netherlands, driven jointly by the Ministries of Environment and of Economic Affairs is aiming for a wholly circular economy by 2050, with a 50% reduction in minerals, fossil fuels, and metal by the year 2030. This session will explore initiatives in Boston and the Netherlands that seek to advance the circular economy.

TH06 | PROCESS AND PERFORMANCE

Architecture, Biometrics, and the 21C Paradigm Shift 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU The current “Age of Biology,” with its new findings in psychology and cognitive science, is changing the understanding of how people function and experience surroundings. This talk will review some of this science, culling out the information most significant for architects. The talk will also look at tools used to gather biometric data which can help 'see’ how people actually,’unconsciously’, take in buildings. These tools, common in ad and web design today, are useful for architects, too, since they can help most clearly understand the impact of the built environment on the human brain and body. The lecture will present videos and stills made from recent pilot-studies of NYC and Somerville, MA, using eye-tracking technology, which follows pre-conscious and conscious eye-moments, and facial expression analysis software which records the everchanging flow of emotions as people take in their surroundings. Participants will learn that collecting the hard data on how people experience their environment is game-changing and this new information not only stands to reframe how designers assess buildings and eventually build them, but, most astonishingly, it will rewrite the narrative of how modern architecture happened in the first place.

Planning for a Resilient Transportation System in Metro Boston 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU The transportation system is both a legacy of past development and a determinant of future conditions. Its design directly impacts the welfare, safety, and long-term prosperity of a community. Increasing urban migration, combined with inadequate housing stock and mobility options, have greatly impacted its functionality. Additional disruptors, such as climate change, and emerging services, such as Uber, have further stressed the system. However, within these shifting patterns lie opportunities for more resilient planning and design. Innovations in transportation technology, such as the introduction of autonomous vehicles and IOT, are anticipated to greatly change the transportation landscape. Ensuring a resilient future for these transportation networks requires an understanding of the mobility needs of an evolving demographic within a changing urban landscape. It requires focusing across different modes and along a continuum from the asset to the system to the region, as a whole. The blizzards that paralyzed Boston in February 2015 demonstrated firsthand how critical transportation is to a region’s economic prosperity. This panel will focus on recent work within and across the MBTA, MassDOT, Boston Harbor Now, and Massport (i.e., land, water, and air-based transport) to highlight the unique challenges and opportunities in bringing resilience to Metro Boston’s transportation system.

TH09 | MARKETING

Architectural Photography in the Marketer’s Toolkit 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU|HSW There’s a reason that the phrase “a picture’s worth a thousand words” has been repeated countless times in a variety of contexts — because it’s true! Apt use of photography can be the most compelling part of your marketing and PR campaigns, and the power of these visuals may render your audience speechless. Whether through print, web, or social media channels, photography can be a vital piece of a firm’s marketing toolkit, and can speak volumes about a project without uttering a single word. Photography is a large part of the marketing budget for architecture firms. How can you best leverage your budget to showcase your firm’s work? During this panel session, a panel of experts will provide tips and tricks for working with a professional architectural photographer and discuss the importance of high-quality photography in architectural marketing.

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 9 (CONT.) TH10 | PARTNERSHIPS AND PLANNING

Brick by Brick: The Arts as a Tool for City Building 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU|HSW Why should architects and urban designers care that public arts funding may all but disappear? With widespread cultural and demographic shifts bringing attention to city living, there is a renewed emphasis on creating successful urban environments. Many studies detail the economic development benefits of the arts as an industry, but it is less clear how the arts — visual, performing, and public - apply to city building and the realization of such environments. At the same time, public arts funding is threatened by federal, state, and local budget cuts, all without a close look at the impacts on the quality of urban life and the spaces it inhabits. In this context, it is the right moment to consider the roles that the arts play in urban life, the design of cities, and even development. This panel will represent a range of arts “implementers”: city staff, nonprofit organizations, and art consultants who support the process of realizing art in urban communities and thus support placemaking. These panelists will inspire designers to explore the significant impacts and complex implementation process for supporting art in an urban context.

Johnson Wing Transformation: Library for the 21st Century 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU With tinted windows and a barricade of granite along Boylston Street, the Boston Public Library’s Johnson Wing-a Boston Landmark-was designed for a different era, when a library’s purpose was to store and protect books. Designed by architect Philip Johnson as an addition to Copley Square’s Central Library, the inwardly focused building, completed in 1972, was decidedly more granite fortress than welcoming civic space. Fast forward to 2017. The Central Branch transformation is now a story of welcome, which Boston Globe writer Dan Adams praised for being “improved as much by subtraction as by addition.” With the granite walls removed, clear glazing to bring in daylight and views and use of warm materials, the Johnson Building is now an urban beacon, transformed by William Rawn Associates, Architects, Inc. and Consigli Construction Co., Inc.Today, as mid-century modern buildings require restoration and renovation, the success of the Central Branch Renovation teaches valuable lessons: how to honor original design intent of a landmark, design for today and tomorrow’s patrons, and integrate 21st century library programming and technology. Join the team to learn how they transformed an outdated landmarked building into a civic treasure and favorite destination.

Remote Design Collaboration: A Cultural Evolution 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM | 1.5 LU|HSW Technology has caught up with the vision of the virtual office, with the ability to work and collaborate from anywhere, yet this office structure has not been fully embraced within the architecture and engineering professions. Our panel will examine the opportunities of remote collaboration by assessing how firms can capitalize on today’s digital workplace to increase creative opportunities, create alternate workflows, and enhance flexibility and equity. The panelists, representing firms of different sizes and backgrounds, will share their experiences of setting up cloud-based offices, fostering remote working, and facilitating virtual collaboration. They will delve into the business and creative opportunities these structures offer, and how they can be used to achieve a more flexible, equitable practice. The session will evaluate the impacts of remote collaboration on work flow, workplace culture, and team structures. Specific technological tools, challenges, and best practices around virtual collaboration will also be examined. The panel will consider the balance between virtual and in-person collaboration and how these needs are best met as remote working and collaboration offers new opportunities for structuring how designers work within the AEC professions.

Great Expectations: What Clients Really Want, Need, and Value 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW This session will explore aspirations and nuts and bolts. How is the realm of client/architect/construction delivery changing? Contracts, teamwork, timeliness, liability, design leadership, design integration, partnering—are these traditional expectations shifting, or the same as ever? And when a client recalls a project—what most important performance values do they assign to the design and construction team? Four experts will offer round table perspectives on dramatically changing needs of the Owner in our 21st century design and construction market. They will engage the audience in the round table discussion throughout the panel. Attendees are invited to bring topics to the session, to be posted as part of the agenda, to guide panelist comments on attendees concerns.

Why Work Place Design Matters 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW The South End is a hip, cool neighborhood with Boston’s best restaurants, a diverse mix of residentialoptions, vibrant art and music scene, some of the most walkable streets, and well-used parks in the city. Not historically an office address, that is soon to change with several proposed projects led by The Druker Company’s EB 80 that will bring workplace to where the talent lives and plays. The Seaport and Kendall Square started with work and innovation and have strived for years to bringrestaurants and residences — an amenity base — as attractions for talent. The South End is amenity rich and is theplace where young, talented millennial want to be. Developer Ron Druker, architect David Manfredi FAIA, and broker Dave Martell will discuss the following topics: 1) How a new construction replicates and even surpasses the vibe of the historic warehouse or mill building as a venue for innovation.2) How the broker fits in the design process. 3) The need to be specific about the innovation workplace: floor to floor heights, loading capacity, daylight, air, and power. Overall, the session will address the impact of workplace design in attracting and retaining talent. Ronald Druker, President, The Druker Company, Ltd.

TH16 | COMMUNITY

Designed with Community in Mind (Sponsored by WiD) 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU This session will build on the lessons learned from CBT’s Housing the Hub initiative to take a deep dive into structuring community engagement processes for the 21st century. The CBT team will cover the following engagement strategies from their successful 2016 public exhibition and discussion series on urban housing innovation. 1)Team Up. Public, private, and non-profit partners bring unique insights, robust outreach networks, and unwavering support to any initiative. 2) Go to Them. Their central, outdoor location allowed them to attract a much wider and larger audience than traditional community engagement programs. 3) Keep it Simple. They were struck by the power of telling a strong story. 4) Bold visuals, key facts, and thoughtful narratives work together to tell a holistic story that resonates with an extremely diverse audience. 5) Be Proactive. Too often community engagement is reactive. Community members continuously thank firms for offering them an opportunity to learn about and play a proactive role in shaping the city’s future. 6) Give Them Options. CBT uses a wide variety of mediums (including augmented and virtual reality) to share an a-la-carte menu of design ideas so that there was something for everyone. The session will also include additional insight and advice from similar community projects. Julia McElhinney, Urban Designer and Strategist, CBT Architects

Glass Facades + Occupant Comfort: Where’s the Balance Point? 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW Being thermally comfortable is one of the aspects that occupants value most in a building, research has found. And yet, achieving localized thermal comfort in cold climates is rarely a priority during the design process — it is always assumed that mechanical systems such as perimeter heating will guarantee it. However, with an increased interest in maximizing energy efficiency, facade transparency and building wellness, while minimizing first cost, this model is due for reconsideration. What if the design team could understand, as early as schematics, which facade properties negatively or positively impact winter occupant comfort? What if there were a way to avoid installing perimeter heat by selecting the right glazing geometry and performance? This interactive workshop will walk attendees through several tools available to design teams to understand the impact of glazing geometry and performance on occupant comfort in the winter time. Real case studies, ranging from residential to higher education, will be used to walk the audience through how each tool can be used during different stages of the design process. For each case study attendees will be able to suggest alternative designs to those presented and evaluate, on their mobile devices, their associated risk of discomfort.

Mobility Revolution: How do we all win? 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW While privately owned autonomous Teslas capture the popular imagination, the real story for dense cities like Boston lies in a shared-mobility revolution. By 2020 shared autonomous vehicles (SAVs)—small, driverless shuttles-will provide on-demand service summoned on a cell phone. Cheaper and more convenient than private cars, they’ll transform not just how people get around but how architects design, build, and think about cities. How quickly will it happen? It took Uber just seven years to go from novel idea to a market valuation bigger than General Motors’. Major development projects now getting under way will open their doors as the first wave of SAVs rolls onto our streets. The industry needs to start thinking yesterday about what SAVs could mean: to start, because one SAV could replace up to 10 private cars, their arrival could mean dramatically reduced parking requirements, narrower streets, and wider, tree-lined sidewalks. Fanning out from T stations, SAVs could deliver universal transit access to residents of poorly-served Boston neighborhoods, transforming development by redefining every city location as transit-oriented. This session examine the planning, design, and policies that can protect Boston against the downside while capitalizing on autonomous mobility’s enormous promise.

This can only be possible with clarity about their purpose and unique brand position. Whether you’re a solo practitioner or running a global firm, you have ongoing struggles to build profits. From this session attendees will reasses the services they offer with a fresh perspective on developing signature, branded offers. They will also learn how to differentiate themselves and break from the perception of their services as a commodity from competitors. As a result of this 90-minute session together, participants will learn how to review their firm and the work you do. This will include analyzing processes and best prospects, as well as determining actions to eliminate or increase. With the strategies, exercises, and handout provided in this session, architects can apply what they learn to transform their business towards achieving their business goals. This will include tips on leveraging new digital innovations, trends, and social channels. Anaezi Modu Assoc. AIA, M.A., NCIDQ, NOMA, IBA, Founder and CEO, REBRANDandtrade; LLC

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 9 (CONT.) TH21 | PARTNERSHIPS AND PLANNING

A Community’s Vision for a 21st Century District 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW Boston is experiencing an unprecedented period of growth. The City’s population is projected to exceed 700,000 people by the year 2030. Boston needs 50,000 more housing units to meet the needs of this growing population. PLAN: South Boston Dorchester Avenue Planning Initiative was one of several undertaken by the City to plan for its growing population. The area from Andrew Square to Broadway Stations is experiencing market pressure to its traditional manufacturing, industrial, and commercial base. This corridor is primed for mixed-use, transit oriented development (TOD) that can accommodate the growing population of Boston. Using Plan: South Boston Dorchester Avenue as a case study this workshop will focus on: 1) Community engagement process that resulted in a shared vision for a 150 acre TOD area in South Boston. 2) Urban design and form-based zoning tools used to translate the community vision into a plan for future development. 3) Density bonus and other strategies to implement the vision and community benefits through public-private partnerships.

Giving Back to Society: How Firms Sponsor Pro-Bono Work 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW Many firms and their staff are interested in doing work on a pro-bono basis that gives back to society, to the world or to the local community in some way. Often the interest in doing this work comes from younger staff members who are willing to contribute their time and enthusiasm to a project that contributes to the good of society. But how can firms effectively marry the enthusiasm of staff with the willingness of the firm to sponsor the right project? In this workshop we present examples of firms who have supported and sponsored pro-bono design work completed by the firm’s staff. Firm leaders and junior staff tell the story of how this work came about, what the results have been for the firm, for the staff and for the client community. The resulting projects will also be described. Speakers will also describe what they learned from the experience, the financial and tax implications for the firm, potential pitfalls to avoid and some guidelines on how to do this kind of work successfully.

TH26 | PRACTICE

Optimizing the Design Process through Data Migration 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM | 1.5 LU How many software platforms do you use in a given day? In a world where architects are asked to wear many hats, it is often necessary to use even more software platforms. To meet the growing complexity of building designs today, architects find themselves compelled to leverage a multitude of platforms throughout the design process. Whether developing concept models in Rhino or documenting your work in Revit, building information is often scattered across multiple platforms. The result is a divided workflow leading to confusion and the duplication of efforts by the design team. This presentation will examine current strategies and tools to assist in migrating building information across platforms. Through a series of case studies, experts will explore different workflow strategies developed to address this growing problem. They will evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each approach and the results of their implementation. At the end of the presentation participants will have a clear understanding of current data migration strategies and best practices. This understanding will empower participants to create their own workflows for moving building information seamlessly between platforms, resulting in a more harmonious design process.

TH27 | CITY LIVING

Boston Remix: Addressing the Equity Crisis 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW Competing in the global knowledge economy, Boston strives to make itself smarter, livelier, and more appealing. But success carries a price: gentrification and displacement of families and young and poor households. Meanwhile, federal support for public housing-historically an option for low-income residents-has all but vanished, jeopardizing approximately 12,000 units in Boston (and 1.3 million nationally). At Charlestown’s 1,110-unit Bunker Hill Apartments, the Boston Housing Authority and private partners are demonstrating how cities can preserve and even increase the supply of affordable housing. They’re tapping increased demand for urban living and a strong real estate market to turn public housing into a new mixed-income community of roughly 2,850 households. Drawing on this experience, the speakers will explore how to meet: the financial, political, and development challenges of mixed-income housing; the planning and urban design challenges of creating a successful mixed-income community; the planning and urban design challenges of integrating greater density into an historic neighborhood; the design challenges of developing a vibrant, walkable, mixed-use neighborhood from scratch; and the challenges of giving public housing residents a true voice at every stage of redevelopment, from planning to governance and management of new mixed-use communities.

TH29 | DISRUPTION

Mixed Reality: Changing the Way We Build, Work, and Live! 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM | LU|HSW Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are quickly emerging into the Mixed Reality that will soon define the way we work, live, and play. Three industry leaders will come together to share how this new immersive technology has become a key contributor to the design and construction of buildings and how people will engage with these integrated mediums once inside the building. Arrowstreet will discuss the ways VR/AR are used in the design process as well as for client and community engagement. Turner Construction has found numerous benefits pertaining to the use of VR/AR in the construction realm of our industry. DCL Boston will discuss how integrated digital display solutions such as 3D project mapping, media facades, immersive environments, and interactive video walls are enabling augmented reality scenarios within built environments.

TH30 | ENVELOPE

The Paradigm Shift toward Integrated Facade Design 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW More than a decade after the advent of BIM software that promised a new integrated design process, most practitioners find themselves with a relatively unchanged struggle to move information between different team members and software interfaces. Learning from this experience, designers are finally shifting focus from “the one model to rule them all” to the computational glue that connects different tools and workflows to one another. Vibrant interdependent ecosystems of plugins, like that which have grown around Grasshopper/Dynamo, along with packages like Flux, that link software interfaces to one another, have enabled an unprecedented level of coordination. Particularly within facade design, such processes have encouraged the sharing of both data and knowledge that has traditionally been siloed among separate interfaces and team members. This session will explore this new paradigm through a series of project case studies and live software demonstrations. It will illustrate a new interlinked software model that synchronizes design iteration, performance analysis, visualization, and documentation within one workflow. The authors of two plugins — Ladybug Tools and SkinDesigner — will present their experiences of integrating their work with both the design processes of projects as well as the larger ecosystem of tools to which they belong.

TH31 | INFRASTRUCTURE

The Crystal Ball: Design, Civitas, and the New Administration 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW The 2016 ABX presentation on Design Excellence explored design standards promoted by divergent organizations: the NYC Department of Buildings, Senator Moynihan’s 1966 GSA manifesto on civic design, and the US Department of State’s Excellence in Design program. These initiatives have promoted new public standards, and resulted in public buildings meeting new levels of design excellence. Now, for the first time in American history, a US President brings a long record of real estate development, and a strongly expressed commitment to improving infrastructure. How might “Design Excellence” and Federal priorities change in the years ahead? Will long-established initiatives be discarded; sustainability criteria revised, forgotten, or discouraged? Will infrastructure renewal take root, but at the expense of other initiatives? How does the new federal budget address housing, infrastructure, security and defense based construction initiatives? The crystal ball implications for our built environment will be explored by a panel actively tracking these issues for publicly funded national and state-assisted projects. The panel will discuss the budget, its implications, examples and provocations, assessing emerging changes, the architect’s obligations, and proposed dramatic shifts in national and civic design agendas.

TH32 | MARKETING

Building Your Bottom Line through Business Development 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW More work and more money are top priorities for today’s firms. The emerging trend for A/E/C firms is the seller- doer concept. Firm leaders have recognized that waiting for the phone to ring to get business is not a sustainable model. Research suggests that technical professionals will have increasing responsibilities for business development (BD) over the next decade. Chances are, the skills needed to develop and win work were not taught in college. This session is designed for those who are responsible for developing, managing, and advocating for business development activities among their staff and leadership. This session will inspire firm leaders to polish their BD skills or develop a BD process at their firm. This program will help D managers get to the next level by maximizing opportunities with new and existing clients.

TH33 | PARTNERSHIPS AND PLANNING

Developing a Healthy, Resilient Community: A Case Study 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM | 1.5 LU Boston’s dense urban environment, with a large stock of abandoned or underutilized properties, needs more than just affordable housing; it needs community engagement, green spaces, opportunities for education, and more local, organic food. It needs farm to table and sustainable employment; it needs health and wellness. Boston needs Healthy, Resilient Communities. Over the last five years, the Urban Farming Institute (UFI) has partnered with other local organizations to trail blaze Article 89 projects throughout Boston. These projects are typically challenging, but not impossible. The crown jewel, envisioned in 2014, designed and constructed over the last three years, is the Fowler Clark Epstein Farm. This corner property in Mattapan, site of one of the oldest farmhouses in Boston (now an Historic Landmark), hosts just under a half acre of growing space, newly renovated office spaces, Farm Manager’s Residence, and a teaching kitchen for UFI’s green collar jobs training. How did this happen and how can we recreate it in Boston and beyond? This interactive panel will discuss how Perkins+Will teamed up with HBI, UFI, TPL, and others to bring this dream into a reality.

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 9 (CONT.) TH34 | PRESERVATION AND REUSE

Renovate, Repurpose, and Revitalize 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM | 1.5 LU|HSW Colleges and Universities are composed of a mixture of building types of different eras, which coexist to create the master plan of a campus. Many of these structures were progressive and forward-looking buildings of their time, but are no longer useful or viable for the current programming needs and requirements of their evolving institutions. These buildings are critical parts of the fabric of their campus and have the opportunity to be sustainably renovated, repurposed, and revitalized to accommodate current and future needs. New trends affecting the rethinking of existing spaces include the need for collaborative classrooms and offices, maker spaces, common spaces, and small meeting spaces for private conversations. Constant changes in technology, programming, and campus culture, require the reworking of existing structures for current and future flexibility. Some of the renovation strategies may include touching the buildings lightly while providing new infrastructure. Other strategies include more transformative interior and exterior interventions. The panelists will review how Boston College, Harvard University, Northeastern University, and Tufts University are adapting and repurposing existing buildings to provide new programming needs and trends on their campuses. The discussion will include their accomplishments to date, lessons learned, and strategies for the future.

How do you step up, step back in and develop others to keep the talent stream in your firm vibrant and ambitious? How do you allow your firm to change for the better? During this session, a panel representing a range of diverse perspectives at Shepley Bulfinch will explore these questions and more. Participants will learn how the design firm has continued to change and re-invent itself over its unusual 140+ year history — from a practice led by HH Richardson, to a family-owned firm run by men, to a women-owned business where 50% of the people, leaders, and owners are women — and is currently using unique career path approaches and policies to prepare its next generation of leadership and guide its ambitious evolution.
