FORM Events: FutureBuild Is Coming

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.

“Since the great recession, developers, designers, thinkers and urban activists have adapted in thousands of ways. Many of them are radically reinventing their business and the world around us,” says ULI Los Angeles FutureBuild Chair Silvia Saucedo. “At FutureBuild these individuals will share how they are reshaping cities, offices, developments and public spaces.”

Among the trends addressed:

  • ·      Micro grids for self-energized buildings and communities
  • ·      3D-printed housing and micro apartments
  • ·      Driverless transportation and new bike infrastructure
  • ·      The 21st century office and the disappearing cubicle
  • ·      Reactivated public realms: urban gardens, parklets, new riverfront uses
  • ·      Healthy buildings and communities
  • ·      From obsolete buildings to high-tech offices
  • ·      Clean and green business incubators in industrial districts
