Modular, Prefab & Construction Tech Senate, NY, USA

April 28-29, 2020

New York, United States of America

World’s tallest modular hotel to rise in NYC

Scheduled to rise in the fall season of 2019, Marriott’s new AC Hotel New York NoMad will represent a major milestone for the hotel chain’s drive to encourage North American hotel developers to embrace modular as the next-gen construction method.

Danny Forster & Architecture, the firm responsible for designing the $65 million modular project, aims to erect the 168-room, 360-foot-tall tower over a 90-day period at the rate of an entire floor a day. Marking a turning point for industry confidence in prefabrication, Marriott is actively incentivizing development companies that leverage prefabrication for construction to the hotel chain’s advantage. Since its initial research into modular construction in 2014, Marriot has gone on to open over 31 Marriot-brand hotels – all low-rise structures – that include prefabricated guestrooms and/or bathrooms.

The Modular, Prefab and Construction Tech Senate is aimed to create a premier destination for professionals working across the built environment to gain insights and experience firsthand the latest innovations and opportunities in modern methods of construction.

Key Benefits of Attending:

  • Addressing the causes of the productivity gap in the global construction industry and introducing the right tools and strategies to overcome it
  • Exploring innovations to improve processes and workflow to drive efficiency, safety and sustainability of your modular and prefab projects
  • Delving into the cutting-edge ideas, processes and systems being developed in the construction industry across single-trade, multi-trade and modular manufacturing processes
  • Enhancing collaboration between project stakeholders in from planning and design to improving fabrication efficiency and streamlining logistics and job site operations
  • Exploring the latest in construction technology shaping from drones and laser scanning, to robotics and AR, to IoT and automation and how you can leverage them in your business

STUDIO #18 – Call for Papers

‘ANALOGIC’ – Issue No. 18

by STUDIO© Architecture and Urbanism magazine

ANALOGIC is a dimension that varies continuously as a variable, assuming an endless amount of values. The etymology of ANALOGIC originates from the union of two Greek words, “Ana” and “Logos”, which indicates “something similar” or “the same word”.

STUDIO Architecture and Urbanism magazine Italy - Analogic

In recent years we are observing the weakening of the ANALOGIC architecture, which is molded into an endless proliferation of unique architectural objects that decline any fixed references.

ANALOGIC is the public space; ANALOGIC is the relational space for citizens; ANALOGIC is a composite procedure with a surrealist base, starting from certain events of the urban condition; ANALOGIC is an alternative way to address the city, approaching imagination, intuition and personal interests; ANALOGIC makes the city an artifact, an idea of type, architectural autonomy, and history as a collective imagination;

STUDIO # 18 ANALOGIC aims to understand how architecture negotiates its formal condition and its social role, asking itself: what are the ANALOGIC processes to use to dodge repetitions? What are the ANALOGIC methods to have a real force on the transformation of the city?

What are the ANALOGIC approaches in which architects can create a contemporary city?


We are accepting proposals for our forthcoming issue ANALOGIC Contributions may be submitted in different forms – essays, photographic essay, illustrations, data visualizations, case studies and projects, interviews, comic strips and even novels – exploring the issue in any field of design: architecture, urbanism, art, photography, graphic design, film… etc.

STAGE 01 (Abstract) – February 02nd 2020 – Contributors are asked to send a 200-word abstract about the proposal. – The abstract must be written in English – Maximum size of the submission (image included if present): 2MB

STAGE 02 (Final Piece) – February 16th 2020 – Selected contributors are asked to send the final piece, following the guidelines below:

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.


• 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.

Hall 2, Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre, Muscat, Sultanate of Oman

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.
