HMC Architects’ Director of Digital Practice Evan Troxel, AIA, is presenting at Building Design + Construction magazine’s “AEC Live!” Conference on May 13, 2019 at Dream Downtown in New York City.

Attended by professionals from all aspects of the industry, this high-energy, fast-paced innovation forum and networking event features 22 talks from top AEC visionaries representing the nation’s leading AEC firms. Keynote speakers get 15 minutes and up to 10 slides to share ideas around technology and business innovation, the changing built environment, and product and process innovation.

Troxel’s talk focuses on:

Evolve or Dissolve: Transforming Your Practice for the New Future

It’s familiar to most of us. We have a working knowledge of digital tools to get the job done. We’re even using VR to create and collaborate with clients. We’re comfortable—or maybe comfortably numb. But where do we see our practices in 10 years? Truth is, most of us have been reactive to an increasingly tech-dependent profession—whether it’s a reaction to the market, client demand, or simply to stay competitive. But it’s time to go deeper. To take a broad look at the effects technology has on the practice of architecture at large, and how it’s being applied (or not applied). In this talk, Evan Troxel is going to shift your mind and get you excited. He’ll share how HMC Architects is transforming its 78-year-old firm into one that thinks like a Silicon Valley startup. He’ll talk about building consensus; going deeper into the tools on which we rely; and increasing our digital literacy by using data to perform better. It’s constant evolution, and our profession depends on it.
