2018 Digital Building Lab Symposium

Data Experience and Environment DBL Symposium October 25 to 26

Our annual symposium will showcase two days of panels with leading international experts, presentations, and an exhibit of research being conducted across the Georgia Tech community.

This year’s symposium looks beyond the processes of project development to consider technology’s impact on our experience of the environment itself. As digital tools escape the desktop and become part of the environment around us, digital interfaces and media are increasingly integral to architecture and the urban fabric
