What will the role of the architect be in 2041? What climate will we be designing for? How will we be documenting our projects? What should our social contribution be? Will architects still design buildings? What will be the impact of a global world?
For this workshop we will use foresight strategies to explore these issues and map possible, probable, and preferable paths for our profession. Applied design thinking strategies will be used to consider the future we want and then plan how we get there. Embrace uncertainties, live out dreams, and take a trip to our possible future profession.
