WORLDBEX Seminars 2018: Innovation and sustainability

FOR the past decade, builders, designers, and creators alike have been faced with a dilemma – how to innovate and push towards progress without all the damage?

Seeking to address this dilemma, the Philippine World Building and Construction Exposition (WORLDBEX 2018), will initiate the dialogue among practitioners of the construction and design community at this year’s WORLDBEX Seminars to explore the ways in which the industry can work together in “Shaping Innovations Toward Sustainability”, set on March 15 to 18, at the SMX Convention Center.

Like its previous installments, this year’s series will feature an impressive roster of guest speakers both local and foreign, for all four seminars scheduled per day.

Among the issues to be tackled are global safety issues with Engr. Bayani Bueser; case study presentation on sustainable casino design by Hong Kong-based Architect; Ian Milne’s; value of adopting the Building Information Modeling or BIM process in construction by Engr. Ernesto De Castro and Archt. Jose Pedro “Bong” Recio’s refreshing perspective on architecture;

Logistics in design, building, and real estate that keep up with the changing times by Archt. Cathy Saldana; IDr. Ma. Carlota Hilvano’s perspective on how to design for citizens in their golden years; Malaysia-based Archt. Azim Aziz’s presentation on sustainable design in the context of tropical countries such as Malaysia; and IDr. Lilia de Jesus’ campaign towards a more inclusive and democratic approach towards interior design.
