In this panel talk along with Chef Jonathan Kinney of Northwest Culinary Academy and Catherine Maxwell of Midland Appliances, we’re going to explore some of the particular design aspects of a true ‘Chef’s Kitchen’.

        Reimagined Outdoor Kitchen Design

          Speaker: Ryan Bloom, Urban Bonfire

          We are witnessing one of the greatest shifts in consumer behaviour as it relates to our homes and the way we spend time in them, from the worldwide move to urbanity, the rise in home cooking and “staycations,” to the search for products with unique retail experiences and compelling storytelling. Outdoor spaces, which were once an afterthought, have now become an essential component of our homes. It is where we unwind after a long day, entertain, cook and connect with family and friends. Where there was once a disconnect between indoors and outdoors, design professionals now find themselves in a unique position to bridge this gap and create the solutions and experiences their clients are seeking in their outdoor spaces. Hear from Urban Bonfire’s Co-Founder and President, Ryan Bloom, as he elaborates on how the design community can leverage this emerging industry to make their mark on outdoor spaces and grow their business in return. Ryan will elaborate on the technical, functional and regional considerations when designing outdoor kitchens.

            Digital Twinning: The Digital Art of the Future

              Speaker: Dr Melanie Robinson, BIM Academy

              Join Dr Melanie Robinson as she uncovers digital twin technology, its place in the building information modelling (BIM) environment and why digital twinning is the art of the future. A digital twin is digital replica of a physical built asset, created using real world data to produce simulations that can predict how an object or process will perform. It can be integrated with the internet of things, artificial intelligence and software analytics for example, to enhance its output.

              With the advancement of machine learning and factors such as big data, these virtual replicas have become incredibly valuable for BIM delivery in modern construction and engineering processes to drive innovation and improve performance. This is a genius new art form that is transforming the way we design, build and operate the building stock of today and that of tomorrow.
