Australia | Proprietary vs. Nonproprietary

| Colin Biggers & Paisley | Melbourne

The architecture, engineering and construction industry is increasingly operating within the merging of physical and digital that defines our era of connectivity. Meanwhile, new semi‐open‐source platforms such as WikiHouse and Resilient Modular Systems, together with the prospect of traditional supply chains being replaced by localised digital manufacturing, are challenging notions of design ownership.

A traditional understanding of intellectual property must be challenged by all firms to ensure relevance in a rapidly evolving industry.

Open-source architecture/engineering has the potential to dramatically and irreversibly change the built environment profession and, consequently, our built environment.

We invite you to join us on February 27 as we bring together built environment leaders to share their firm’s perspective on the transition to an open-source built environment.

Proprietary vs. Nonproprietary, the Journey to an Open-Source Built Environment  will be held Wednesday, February 27 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. AEDT at Colin Biggers & Paisley in Melbourne. For more information and to register, go here.
