Design NXT Week 2019

August 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am - August 24, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

| $250 - $500

Design NXT Week is the first conference in the southeast to focus on emerging technology in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries. It will be a groundbreaking, four-day, educational deep dive into the converging technologies shaping the process of designing, creating and maintaining the built environment.

Design NXT Week is more than a conference—it’s an in-depth, hands-on exploration of digital transformation and design technology disrupting all aspects of the AEC business. Stay on top of the latest industry trends with a wide variety of thought-provoking and actionable panels, workshops, and masterclasses ranging in topics from practice evolution and innovation,
to design integration and culture.

In collaboration with tvsdesign and Design NXT Week 2019, CORE studio at Thornton Tomasetti is hosting a two-day program of technical masterclasses. Attendees will receive the opportunity to learn a new skill or hone their current skill set and complete a project incorporating these skills. Masterclasses begin on Friday morning and end on Saturday afternoon, concluding with a Show+Tell to present their final projects. Networking and drinks will follow the Show+Tell!
