David Daniels, Director of Architecture at SSH, took part in a panel discussion about how digital technologies affect façade design in modern architecture at the World of Façades Middle East conference, held at the Conrad Dubai on 20 March 2018.
Acting as a nexus of knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities for delegates, industry leaders and experts were on hand to offer their wealth of experience on technically driven sustainable façade design and execution.
At the fourth annual one-day event in the UAE, David sat with other industry experts to discuss the integration of digital fabrication, complex façade geometries in the post-digital era, the use of 3D printing technologies for sustainable design, and the benefits and challenges of building information modelling streamlining complex façade design,.
“Façades can give modern buildings their identity and, done correctly, can turn them into landmarks in their own right,” said David on the sidelines of the conference. “The advanced digital technologies that go into façade design, and the architecturally innovative possibilities they open up for signature designs, help the profession to turn schemes around more sustainably, add value to completed projects, and do so more efficiently.”
