Lightning Rounds - New Technologies That Could Change the Built Environment

We gave a presentation to a group of real estate investors. The question: What technology might be interesting if you are imagining how our commercial buildings will be radically different in a decade. Think internet shopping and fulfilment centres.

We picked 4 technology families that are on an exponential growth curve (or several): Energy, Manufacturing, Transport and Space.

The slides were designed to be talk through and stimulated a great discussion. When exponential change begins its hard to notice the impact, until its everywhere. At first gradually, and then all at once. Drop us an email if you would like to talk through any of these slides.
