Ladies Who Tech Founders Series Shanghai : Architecture Tech
Ladies Who Tech Shanghai team plans to keep up the momentum with the upcoming Founders Series happening on Dec 10! This event will create an exclusive tech-hub where connections among tech founders, tech-freelancers, potential co-founders, talent and potential clients can cross-pollinate in a meaningful way to achieve shared tech business objectives like improving product quality. In this month's edition, we focus on ArchitectureTech.
The magnificent Forbidden City, the towering Empire State Building, the mysterious Giza Pyramids… When you are travelling around the world and looking at these famous constructions, what of them are catching your eyes? You would say the beautiful design, the solemness and magnificence, and maybe even the stories attached to them. But have you ever tried to find out the science and technology utilized in those structures?
In all ages, science and technology have been so extensively used in architecture. Besides the abovementioned structures, buildings in our everyday lives and civil architecture apply brilliant technology and ideas. For example, the famous mortise and tenon joint structure is applied in both the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, and tables and chairs in our homes. This invention brought safer use and longer life of buildings and furniture to humankind.
Marching to the new age, how are the new digital technologies such as internet, big data and AI going to help the new Architecture industry to create more values and possibilities, and eventually create better living for us? Let's find that out in our next Founders Series on Architecture Tech!
