Smarter Buildings: At the Intersection of Architecture, Design & Technology
Smarter Buildings explores advancements in the field of building technology through case studies of the world’s smartest buildings.
As this year’s recipient of AIA Seattle Emerging Professionals Scholarship, architect Derik Eckhardt traveled to Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Boston, Copenhagen, Dubai, London, Portland and Stuttgart to research smarter buildings. The buildings selected for research cover a broad range of technologies. They represent arguably the world’s smartest buildings, not only by the degree to which technology is embedded within the built environment, but also in the ingenuity with which that technology is harnessed.
Derik Eckhardt AIA, is an Architect with The Miller Hull Partnership in Seattle, Washington, most recently working on civic infrastructure facilities as well as mixed-use commercial developments.
On display at the Center for Architecture & Design March 2 through April 15.
