Detroit, MI, June 28, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Best-selling author Jack Uldrich is in Detroit today to share his insights on the future of architecture and construction with leaders from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards at their 99th annual meeting.
Uldrich's keynote will be focused on the game-changing technologies that could transform architecture and construction in the coming years. When it comes to the trends affecting the future of these industries, Uldrich says that advancements in a wide variety of areas will have an impact. This includes innovations like 3D printing, artificial intelligence, advanced robotics, the blockchain, and virtual and augmented reality, but also the not so obvious trends of peer-to-peer lending and the "gig" economy.
"The faster we can recognize potential changes in technology, the better-prepared the construction industry will be in the long run."

Each of these trends and technologies is transforming architecture and construction at an exponential pace, and Uldrich will explore the possibilities the future may hold for them, and what impacts they may have on how we design and build in the future. He will also identify key opportunities to "design" the future of architecture created by these fast-emerging trends and technologies.
According to Uldrich, "The faster we can recognize potential changes in technology, the better-prepared the construction industry will be in the long run. Everyone in the industry from ranging from architects to engineers to construction workers will need to increase their awareness of the advances in technology because at the end of the day these technologies will radically impact their future."
After his presentation today, Uldrich will travel to Boston to speak on the future of education for leaders with Graduate Management Admission Council.
