Innovative technology is shaping the future of design, but where design can truly make a difference is when human experience is at its core. Ken Sanders, FAIA, Managing Principal at Gensler, and Jack Dahlgren, Senior Project Manager at NVIDIA, will discuss highly collaborative, integrated approaches to design and delivery that illustrate how digital technology is magnifying the creativity of design talent and achieving new levels of performance and value for clients.  Among other real-world project examples, Ken and Jack will present how Gensler and NVIDIA worked closely together to develop a new state-of-the-art, iconic headquarters campus for NVIDIA in Santa Clara, California, incorporating high performance daylighting simulation, virtual reality and computational geometry processes and tools.
