There is a $400 billion demand for energy to power our buildings each year. But, 30% of that energy is wasted, resources are dwindling, and a shift has begun in the way we design and construct buildings.

The losses due to natural disasters in three of the last 15 years exceed $100 billion, and it’s getting more costly. While much of the existing risk could be cost effectively reduced by elevating, strengthening, removing buildings or by various other measures, the resources needed to do so greatly exceed the funds available from traditional public-sector mitigation budgets.

How will the role of the architect change in a future of ubiquitous artificial intelligence-driven design tools? How can subjective judgements and qualitative goals be reconciled with quantitatively-driven digital design tools? This session will explore these questions through the lens of multi-objective optimization and demonstrate software workflows to balance project goals that are both aesthetic and quantitative in nature.

FM has extensive information needs on various aspects of individual components comprising the asset portfolio during operation and maintenance (O&M). The inefficiencies of insufficient interoperability intrinsic to traditional information management practices and the considerable financial losses are driving the industry to search for more integrated, sustainable, and automated practices.
