A series of emerging technologies within the construction industry have been building and amplifying on one another during the last years - that is no secret to most of us, but has the building industry seen a successful amount of business models arising as a product of these groundbreaking technologies applied in Architecture and Construction? Under auspices from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the German Chancellery, Ivan has conducted research on the introduction of emerging technologies currently transforming how architects, designers and engineers navigate the construction process; allowing us to approach and conceive fabrication with the aid of robotics, 3d printers, drones, CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Machinery, among other new tools. By looking closely into promising European companies that have managed to adapt their business models to the endless possibilities of digital fabrication, Ivan developed a series of case studies during his Humboldt Fellowship's research on companies creating breakthroughs on new paths for construction delivery. His design research supported the World Economic Forum report 'The Future of Construction' -published in 2017.
