The Building the Future Commission is a year-round project, as Building celebrates its 180th anniversary, looking at radical and challenging ideas that could help transform the built environment. The commission aims to tap into innovative ideas, amplify them and be an agent for change.

At the conclusion of the conference attendees will be joined by the finalists for both the Architect of the Year Awards and Building Awards to celebrate the best and brightest in the sector.

During the shortlisting party, the results of the Future Thinkers Award, a Building the Future Commission initiative designed to recognise innovative ideas from those aged under 35 in the sector, will be announced.
