Event Summary

What You'll Learn: 

  • A hot topic in Austin’s landscape is density. Users across the board are simply putting more people in less space. How does this impact the architecture and design process?
  • With so many people moving to Austin, how do we build and design to support the growth? Is there infrastructure there?
  • What role does the private sector play in developing public spaces? How do we get the private sector thinking about how their projects impact infrastructure as a whole?
  • Designing for people is a value-add especially when you are competing for great talent. What types of amenities are key to attracting and retaining top tier tenants?
  • How are industry leaders successfully increasing connectivity, making Austin's future more sustainable and environmentally sensitive?


How You'll Do More Business:  Austin is growing and developing quicker than any of us can keep track of. As we build to meet the needs of Austin’s growing population, the city is also becoming a destination for architecture and design. While many of Austin’s most famous architectural sites are historic — from the Texas Capitol to the Driskill Hotel, new and modern architecture is spreading across the city. Architects are taking risks by creating high-density mixed-use projects that seamlessly blend different types of spaces into one development. Even during the pandemic, the city has still managed to attract residents and corporate relocations at record high numbers. Join Austin’s top architects as they discuss which trends will outlive the pandemic, projects they'd like to take on, how to implement design changes quickly, designing with density in mind, and more.


Who You’ll Meet: Owners, developers, investors, construction, designers, architects, engineers and city leaders.
