In search of a brighter future. Manufacturing Brighter Future International Conference

16 of February '24

Faced with the challenges of today's world - the climate crisis and problems in material supply chains - what and how we build needs to be rethought. How to do it wisely, efficiently and ecologically? This is what the speakers and participants of the international Manufacturing Brighter Future conference in Krakow will be pondering in March.

On March 25-27 this year, the Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology in Krakow will host an international conference Manufacturing Brighter Future, organized by the Committee on Urban Planning and Architecture of the Polish Academy of Sciences Branch in Krakow, the Faculty of Architecture of the Tadeusz Kościuszko Cracow University of Technology, the Faculty of Architecture of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow. Tadeusz Kosciuszko, the Faculty of Architecture and Fine Arts of the Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Krakow Academy and the School of Architecture and Design New York Institute of Technology.

The event will focus on the modularization of design, the search for new technologies and solutions for responsible, sustainable, cost-effective, resilient and beautiful construction in the face of the climate crisis and the challenges of material supply chains.

How will we build now and in the future? Is there a way to design and deliver buildings that can truly meet the challenges of our time? What technologies can be used? - the organizers ask.

Speakers at the event include Chris Sharples, founder of New York-based SHoP Architects, Anna Dyson - professor of architecture at the Yale Schools of Architecture and Environment and founder of the Yale Center for Ecosystems in Architecture, who will talk aboutbio-based materials, and John DeFazio, director of the Raymond Farm Center for Living Arts & Design, who will speak about arts, crafts and industry in architecture at the dawn of the third machine age. The program also includes a visit to the factory of modular object manufacturer DMD Modular in Skawina (March 27).
