Session 4A: Connected Buildings and Urban Mobility

30 October 2017
3:45 PM – 5:15 PM

New physical and digital technologies are revolutionizing how tall buildings connect with our cities, transforming how urban inhabitants interact with the built environment, inside and out. Presentations here survey this phenomenon at all scales, examining large transit-based design strategies, the smart integration of elevators and escalators in tall buildings, and the immense opportunities created by the Internet of Things with respect to the occupant experience and real-time data analytics.
