Estimated to be worth A$12.3 billion dollars in 2014-15, the Australian pre-fabricated building industry is forecast to grow by 3% annually until 2020. The appetite and capacity for ‘manufactured’ methodologies for building is expanding internationally and presents a lucrative opportunity for construction and advanced manufacturing businesses in South Australia.
Returning for Open State in 2016, Future Forum : Modulation, will bring together experts from within government, construction, manufacturing and design sectors to facilitate a strategic and collaborative discussion where opportunities and benefits for the state will be mapped out.
Curated by Jack Hobbs McConnell Travelling Fellow in Architecture, Dino Vrynios, Future Forum : Modulation will include keynote addresses from leading industry proponents as well as a forum format discussion to understand the market and identify specific actions that will enable the State to participate.

About Future Forum
The world is rapidly changing around us and as a state we need to position ourselves to be at the forefront of that change.
Future Forum was created by the Australian Institute of Architects to nurture and facilitate conversations across disciplines and industries to fast track action.
Future Forum : Modulation is presented by The Festival of Architecture and Design, an initiative of the Australian Institute of Architects and supported by Grieve Gillett Andersen
