Architecture and Transformation

Architecture is changing at a high pace. The aim of the group is transformation of the role of the architect, of the existing building stock and the way buildings and open spaces are designed, constructed and produced. Our profession has the world as its canvas.


 Architecture has the world as its canvas – and that world is changing rapidly              

Our work is connected with the far-reaching and emergent changes in society spurred by the digital revolution. Data is now at the heart of everything, and social balances are shifting. Architects now no longer design buildings; they need to be able to lead the large consortia of people and businesses that are involved in today’s initiatives in the built environment.
