How Can We Make Data-driven Decisions to Reduce Whole Life Cost and Carbon?

As we embark on a new decade, discussions surrounding the sustainability and longevity of our buildings have reached fever pitch, particularly within the context of the UK’s commitment to a 2050 target of carbon neutrality and a 33% reduction in whole life cost by 2025.

Leading the way in innovative thinking is Cartwright Pickard, who alongside the Mackintosh School of Architecture have conducted research into new software that will greatly assist the government in achieving these essential targets.

MK:U International Design Competition

The MK:U International Design Competition seeks world-class design teams for a new model university in the Oxford to Cambridge innovation arc.

Beloved by architects as the most original and successful of the mid-twentieth century’s wave of ‘New Towns’, and famously ‘different by design’, Milton Keynes (MK) has successfully reinvented itself as a ‘Smart City’ and is a key contributor to the United Kingdom’s knowledge economy.

Will Architecture in the Future Be a Luxury Service?

This article was originally published by Common Edge as "In the Era of Artificial Intelligence, Will Architecture Become Artisanal?"

At last census count there were 233,000 architects in the United States; the 113,000 who are currently licensed represent a 3% increase from last year. In addition there’s a record number of designers who qualify for licensure: more than 5,000 this year, almost the same number as graduates with professional degrees. There is now 1-architect-for-every-2,900 people in the US. A bumper crop, right?

Either way, in the age of Instagram and unavoidable envy at the seemingly constant stream of images of laptops by the beach, cocktail in hand my wife and business partner Bonnie Robin, and I were keen to try this thing called digital nomadism for ourselves.
