WE05EM - ARCHITECTURE DISRUPTED: Transforming an Evolving Industry (BSA EPNet recommends)

Wednesday, November 8 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM

Abstract Text:

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 our industry is being disrupted by new fabrication techniques and how we can capitalize on those advancements by exploring alternative business models while minimizing the associated risks.

Learning Objectives:

Review forces impacting our industry today to better understand how elements of "disruption" can elevate our role as professionals in the architecture industry.

Study examples of alternative business models that could help us diversify and broaden our scope of services as architects.

Learn what steps are required for exploring and evaluating alternative business models.

Understand the risk factors associated with alternative business models in order to make an informed decision about how to diversify your practice
