More on the exhibition:

Today’s smarter buildings use a new generation of tools that leverage current data-rich environments to help create more capable and sustainable structures. The SMARTER BUILDINGS exhibition explores advancements in the field of building technology through case studies of the world's smartest buildings, including projects in Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Boston, Copenhagen, Dubai, London, Portland and Stuttgart. The exhibition investigates buildings which represent arguably the world’s smartest buildings, not only by the degree to which technology is embedded within the built environment, but also in the ingenuity with which that technology is utilized. Smarter Buildings leverage advanced technology to enable the integration, automation, and optimization of any building system, requiring a broad range of new tools to generate and evaluate them. In broad terms, these buildings are those that provide advanced functionality through a computerized, intelligent network of digital devices.

Cost:$10 donation requested at the door.
