The Future of Architecture, June 6, 6:30pm

Santa Cruz New Tech Meetup

The Future of Architecture, June 6, 6:30pm

Cruzio building, 877 Cedar St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060

The idea that all architecture begins with a human-drawn design is being challenged in today's world. Like all fields going through a modern technology-based transition (like publishing, education or even retail), the effects of high-tech applications and work flows on architecture are far-reaching and life-altering for many.

Join titans of the Santa Cruz architectural industry for a panel discussion about the "Future of Architecture". Featuring local architects Matthew Thompson of Thacher and Thompson Architects, Mark Primack of Mark Primack Architecture, Daniel Townsend of Fuse Architects, and Chris Yonge of the MakersFactory, the event promises to delight everyone with a curiosity about the how these designers are adapting to the change in their discipline.

You'll get to compare traditional hand-created models to computer-generated renderings. You'll see examples of what some believe the future will hold and who will use it. You'll hear what others believe we're losing with the new techniques.

Appetizers and drinks included in the price of admission. $10 at the door.

Cruzio building, 877 Cedar St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060.

    Great breadth of members on the panel, it was really interesting to see so many viewpoints on the topic. The discussions about drawing, CG and 3D printing were all very interesting and thought provoking.

    Great topic and presentations, but almost no time for Q&A! Speakers spoke too long, including the hostess. Wasted too much time asking everyone what was their favorite building.
