Organized by global conference producers, Expotrade, the two-day event being held on 3-4 May 2017 will highlight the latest advancements in skyscraper development in the Middle East region.
Presenting on the topic of Skyscrapers as Catalysts for Social Interaction, Michele will deliver an insightful presentation emphasizing on aspects such as the social need for innovation in architectural design impact of high rises on urban design and how design excellence forces development of the construction industry.
Michele Pasca di Magliano, Associate Director, Zaha Hadid Architects, UK commented, “I believe skyscrapers have a great unexplored potential to enrich our cities, foster human communication and create more interconnected communities. High rises should have a volumetric articulation which responds to their internal planning, they should free up valuable areas for communal facilities, provide through links both horizontal and vertical to generate awareness and human communication. The work of Zaha Hadid Architects exploits these themes and provides exciting new solutions for our cities, generating value and innovation for the construction industry.”
Over 25 speakers of regional and international repute will drive discussions and conversations around topics pertaining to skyscraper construction at the summit. Across two days, the summit will feature a series of keynote presentations, case studies and interactive panel discussions that focus on practical insights, and proven best practices in innovative design principles and sustainable building technologies in the smart development of high rise buildings.
