“Architecture and design are crucial in addressing some of the main challenges the construction sector is currently facing, particularly in achieving sustainability goals, hence creating a dedicated platform for its key stakeholders to exchange knowledge, network and explore the latest products innovations. Dubai, rightly known as one of the pioneers of new-age architectural design paradigms, is well placed to host this transformational showcase and gathering of inspirational industry experts” explained Josine Heijmans, Vice President – Construction at dmg events.
Andy Shaw, Chair of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Gulf Chapter and an advisory panel member, comments that Everything Architecture is a timely initiative: “There is a lot of excitement around projects across Saudi Arabia’s transformation and where the UAE will go next in terms of innovation and architectural mastery”.
Fellow panel member Jennie Binchy, of Dubai’s award-winning BINCHY AND BINCHY architecture and design studio, said market growth is being stimulated by the luxury residential sector. “The sector is booming, and with so many projects coming up across the region, there is a requirement for bespoke design approaches which in turn demand exciting products,” said Binchy.
The Architecture & Design Talks will be chaired by design strategist Esra Lemmens and see experts address the themes of health and wellbeing, heritage, innovation, technology, and sustainability development.
