Flaherty’s presentation will be followed by an inspirational keynote message from design visionary Leo Van Broeck, a founding partner of BOGDAN & VAN BROECK in Belgium. Van Broeck will share his theory that the design of attractive, dense and high-quality urban areas is a catalyst for changing how much space people think they need to lead enjoyable and meaningful lives, and how that belief has led to his active participation in the promotion of spatial quality and awareness, the domain of urban density and optimal land use.

Nemetschek Vectorworks’ Chief Technology Officer Dr. Biplab Sarkar will open Wednesday’s sessions with a keynote address, providing unprecedented development insight into the Vectorworks line of CAD and BIM design solutions, including features that will be in Vectorworks 2016.

Adrian McGregor, FAILA, RLA, MAIH, MPIA, managing director of Australian landscape architecture and urban design firm McGregor Coxall, is Wednesday’s Closing Speaker. McGregor transforms public spaces across the world into living, breathing works. His firm has completed work in six nations, focusing on sustainable design in the public domain and urban settings, going beyond the reduction of environmental damage and using regenerative approaches to actively advance each site’s ecology. McGregor has been recognized for his work in sustainable design, as well as in mediation, helping communities, authorities and developers to work together to create better-informed designs.

Breakouts and Expo Hall

Confirmed breakout session speakers at the Design Summit represent firms and industry partners including ROJO Architects, MORRIS, Holcombe Norton Partners, Inc., Exhibit Logic, LEVENBETTS, The Small Group, Bluebeam Software, Architecture Is Fun and more. Sessions will examine a wide range of topics from communicating design ideas, moving from 2D to 3D and using smart CAD tools for sustainable site design to utilizing Vectorworks as a BIM tool and rendering for success. Vectorworks engineers and product experts, as well as third party partners like MAXON Computer, Asite and Synchro Software, will also provide product training and answer attendee questions in the Design Summit’s Expo Hall.

For the academic community, a student track offers tips on what design firms look for when hiring and University of Pennsylvania graduate student Diego Bermudez shares how he turned a school project into $10,000 as the winner of the 2014 Richard Diehl Award and Vectorworks Design Scholarship. There will also be speakers representing Columbia University, Parsons The New School for Design, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Philadelphia University.
