Architecture Events 2021
Modular Prefab & Construction Tech Senate Amsterdam April 2021
A digital disruption wave is hitting all industry sectors including construction and it is undoubtable that modular constructions can go hand-in-hand with technological development.
The basis of volumetric modular systems, or prefabricated construction, is the initial digital 3D design and the ability to utilise Building Information Modelling (BIM) to ensure the building is suitable for the planned location and design requirements. It is also behind the stackable modules used in several storey homes or larger industrial buildings, including hotels and office blocks.
McKinsey & Company calculated that, the market value for modular in new real-estate construction alone could reach $130 billion in Europe and the United States by 2030, delivering annual cost savings of $22 billion. In many countries, modular construction is still very much an outlier but there are strong signs of what could be a genuine broad-scale disruption in the making. It is already drawing in new competitors—and it will most likely create new winners and losers across the entire real estate and construction ecosystem.
Many factors determine whether a given market is likely to embrace modular construction, but the two biggest determinants are real-estate demand and the availability of skilled construction labor. In places such as Germany’s major cities and the southern part of the United Kingdom, labor shortages and large-scale unmet demand for housing intersect, making this model particularly relevant.
Join us at The Modular & Prefabrication Construction to earn insightful knowledge and fruitful discussion on understanding emerging construction technologies, including robotics, 3D imaging and even the use of RFID-BIM which are becoming increasingly leveraged to aid the design and development of modular construction. Those technological capabilities are enhanced, sped up and become more cost-effective and sustainable, when utilised in a controlled by factory setting.
WHY YOU CANNOT MISS THIS EVENT
• Learn how to enhance the prefab buildings design with an architectural approach
• Develop the right digital manufacturing line for precast modules
• Increase the efficiencies of modular construction with integrated supply chain system
• Understand the tendering and contracting system in modular construction
• Take advantage of the deployment of IoT, PPVC, DfMA, RFID-BIM, VDC, IDD, and prefab data center for off-site construction
• Exploring the applications of wood concrete composite panels, mass engineered timber, and steel concrete composite systems
Only limited seats are allocated for this Summit. Group registration package available with terms and conditions applied.
Lucca Biennale X Edition postponed to 2021
Aug 1st – Sep 26, 2021
X EDITION NEW DATES
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic developments, the organizing committee of Lucca Biennale Cartasia has decided to postpone the tenth edition of the event from August 1st to September 26th, 2021.
We are working and will continue to work to maintain the safety of all those who work at or participate in the event, as artists and audience, and to maintain the integrity of the Biennale and its many sections.
That is why the Biennale does not stop. Great ideas are planned for the next edition: events, exhibitions, seminars, conferences involving countries such as Japan, as well as artists and speakers from all over the world. We are working on an edition rich in culture, art, events to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the event.
Postponing the event is above all a form of respect towards the city of Lucca, the participating artists and the public involved: we are going to be able to gather again in summer 2021, to live together the beauty of art.
After the tenth edition, in 2021, the eleventh edition will take place, as planned, in 2022 bringing the Lucca Biennale back to even years.
Thanks to every single person who continues to support us, we are at your disposal for any request.
To all, a deep wish for creativity, art and culture.

BIM Summit, Los Angeles, USA
27-28 October 2020
Los Angeles, South California, USA
The efficiency, coordination and outcome improvements delivered by building information modelling (BIM) makes its growing utilization in the AEC industry almost inevitable. BIM’s usage within Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD) optimizes the use of digital technologies throughout the 4 stages of the built environment lifecycle – Design, Fabrication, Construction and Asset Delivery & Management.
This is not digitalisation merely for the sake of doing it. As the AEC industry builds bigger and take on projects of greater complexity within shorter time frames, building efficiently and strengthening collaboration across the entire value chain will be mission critical.
The process of launching Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) practices throughout the United States, however, has been slow and selective. The hard bit for many AEC firms is determining how exactly to use BIM-related tools to transform processes and create important differences to outcomes.
To ensure the integrated use of BIM, firms need to elaborate digital strategies and develop policies valid for all projects. Without standard policies, the diffusion of BIM technology will be strictly based on the relation between client and contractor, with different methods for each project.
Join us at the BIM Summit to get insights into how BIM will become the versatile tool to launch IDD shared platforms and standards to support the larger adoption of IDD solutions. Hear from AEC professionals compelling case studies about BIM’s evolution to solve various industry challenges and its wider implication for business gains.
KEY BENEFITS OF ATTENDING:
• Scale to new heights in BIM innovation and embrace digitization as the core driver of Construction 2.0
• Discover what it takes to achieve smarter and sustainable designs with a deeper understanding of BIM and its applications
• Drive further automation and efficiency of processes through consolidated data sources and integrated platforms
• Optimize workflows through active collaboration with other project stakeholders in data-sharing channels
• Learn about the greater role BIM will play in shaping future built environments in the region

Oman Real Estate Expo 2021, Muscat, Oman, The Middle East
22 – 24 March 2021
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe, the decision has been taken to postpone Oman Real Estate Exhibition (OREX) 2020, 30th March to 1st April 2020.
ODBW will now take place between 22 to 24 March 2021, at the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC), Muscat, Oman.
This decision is supported by the Ministry of Health, Oman Real Estate Association and Omanexpo.
We have been having regular dialogue with the Ministry of Health, Oman, as well as the Oman Real Estate Association, in relation to COVID-19. We as organisers must commend the way that the COVID 19 (Coronavirus) outbreak is being very competently controlled in Oman, we must be conscious that many organisations within our community are currently facing difficulties travelling around the world. It is for these travel reasons that ODBW will be postponed until 2021.

This property event is held concurrently with Oman Design & Build Week.
OREX is endorsed by the main regulators and facilitators in Oman: The Ministry of Housing and Oman Real Estate Association.
