Nowadays, architects plan the life cycle of a building over a period of several years or even decades and must make assumptions about technological progress, future needs of the users, changing socioeconomic trends, possible shifts in political and legislative frameworks and climatic change. It is a difficult task that requires room for spontaneity in the planning process and flexibility in subsequent use.

Urban Beta / Bratke
Predictive Planning for Transformative Spaces
Today, the speed of knowledge dissemination and ever more rapid changes in social dynamics
are giving rise to a programmatic need for a more flexible approach to building. Architecture that can respond to rise of automation an on-demand society. The talk will examine architecture as an agile and flexible construct – not just in terms of usability and adaptability of the finished building but also in terms of the process by which it comes about and in the management of the planning and construction process.
Urban Beta’s work deals with social justice including co-creation processes, platforms and circular economy. The talk will examine the collaborative design approach at Urban Beta as well as our applied research in partnerships with universities, where technology acts as a accelerator for systematic social and ecological change. It will investigate how spatial innovation can enable greater democratization of the building industry and dive into architecture as a space on-demand solution, that is scalable and can grow and change with

Juan Pablo Huerta
Juan Pablo Huerta, is an architect who has 10 years of experience in architectural design and a technical and professional preparation that is driven towards the needs of the client, creative processes and the sustainability of the projects. Juan develops architectural proposals and prepares plans, studies and specifications to correctly define the projects for the different clients. Juan will discuss his passion around focusing on design and reducing the environmental impact and looking for the growth of the populations where each one of its projects are developed.

Theoremas Mexico and Texas
Gabriel Esquivel is the director of the T4T Lab at Texas A&M University since 2010 where he examines the integration of digital technology to exchange architectural information and its connection to contemporary theory. Gabriel will discuss how digital technologies impact architecture and design and the exchange of architectural information and its connection to contemporary theory.
12.30pm - 1.30pm
Carlos Bañón is an architect specialized in digital design and advanced manufacturing methods in the built environment.
Carlos Banon will be discussing the circular economy paradigm. He will discuss integrating computational design with complex manufacturing processes into full-scale architectural projects, emphasizing environmental sustainability in a circular economy paradigm.
