Mayor Eric Garcetti is among the leaders who will preview dramatic changes in urban living at FutureBuild 2014. On January 28 ULI Los Angeles, a District Council of the Urban Land Institute (ULI), presents this high-level, interactive event. Mayor Eric Garcetti will give the lunch keynote event – a preview of a sustainably designed future Los Angeles. Other topics will include 3D printed homes, driverless vehicles, micro power grids, the 21st-century office, instant parks and urban farms, healthy places, new uses for old buildings and other radical reinventions.
In partnership with VerdeXchange, FutureBuild: Space Changers explores the social trends, economic forces and influential people remaking real estate and urban living.
