Join the Durham School for the 2024 'Future of the Building Industry' (FoBI) Workshop, scheduled for May 22-23, 2024 at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha, Nebraska.  This 1.5-day workshop will feature invited speakers and participants from academia, industry, and government, coming together to brainstorm and take actions toward realizing high-performance, sustainable and healthy ‘smart infrastructure’ of the future

Each year, the FoBI Workshop theme is expected to change. The 2024 workshop returns to the topic we discussed in 2022: current challenges and opportunities of living environments for aging adults.

The FoBI Workshop is followed immediately by the half-day Durham School Ph.D. Symposium (afternoon of May 23), during which Ph.D. Fellows invited to attend the FoBI Workshop are asked to present their scholarly work to each other and to Durham School faculty and students.  The Durham School plans to host the FoBI Workshop and Ph.D. Symposium every year for the foreseeable future.
