What’s going to be the next big thing for the digital built environment?

Digital twin for Built environment: Creating digital prototype of physical building that behaves like a real structure and provides crucial information on real life performance, cost savings and resource efficiency can enable us to better understand how our buildings are performing and simulate how they perform in future scenarios. Adopting Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning, the digital twins can improve energy resilience, reduce the operating cost, increase the resource efficiency, and help us to decarbonise our buildings. When it is used on large sector community planning, we can analyse and improve the energy use at large scale and it can reduce the impact on the planet.

What is the best book you’ve ever read?

The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream, by Paulo Coelho

I admire the messages of this story in my own way. I think that this book would have had a profound influence on me no matter what state (good or bad) my life was in when I read it. There were many parts that I read over two or three times not because I didn’t understand, but I was so amazed that I found myself wanting to experience a passage again. No matter what your dream, goals or visions are, the universe will conspire to help you achieve the things you want, regardless of how insurmountable the task seems. You must live the life you truly desire to its fullest extent if you want to look back on a life having worth lived.

What advice would you give to your 20-year-old self?

Everything happens for a reason, and you’re never fully going to understand the connections between different events in your life. Have faith in knowing that if you try to be a good person each day, and you work on your craft whatever it might be, you can be special one day just like those people you admire. Chase the feeling you get when you do something you love and forget all the elements including what people think of your passion. Things will turnout better than you imagined.
