Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) will present the Columbia Building Intelligence Project (C-BIP) sixth International Think Tank on 24th February, 2012, at the powerHouse Arena in Brooklyn, New York.
Leading educators, architects, engineers, fabricators, contractors, owners, and other industry experts will gather to explore solutions that could change the building industry for the better as part of the Columbia Building Intelligence Project (C-BIP). The event is an open dialogue that simultaneously pushes today's industry leaders to think differently and informs educators on trends that could transform how the next generation of professionals is educated.
C-BIP works with the premise that we cannot change the future of the architecture/engineering/construction industry without transforming the education of future leaders, which begins with a renewed engagement between academia and industry. The Columbia Building Intelligence Project is made possible by the generous support of Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope™.
The C-BIP Brooklyn Think Tank, entitled 'Vectored Development' is open to the public, by reservation, and will take place on February 24, 2012, from 1:00 pm – 5:30 pm at powerHouse Arena, 37 Main Street, in Brooklyn, New York, (718) 666-3049. www.powerhousearena.com.
