The wait is over. Greenbuild and ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX) 2017 are here—lucky for us, quite literally in our Boston office’s backyard. Combining events for the first time, we’re thrilled to join thousands of green building cohorts from across industries and around the globe to elevate design through shared principles and practices. Here are just of few of the conversations we’re looking forward to:
As technology advances, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) tools are increasingly valuable to design. We’re trading notes and demos with peers and partners to uncover how different firms are utilizing VR and AR to enhance communication and the design process. VR/AR Demonstration Booth .
