Fast Company’s 2023 Innovation Awards, an annual series dedicated to spotlighting advancements in tech across industries, offers a glimpse at the future of design and construction.
The winning ideas help solve what the magazine calls “thorny problems.”
“All of the projects are a reminder that it takes more than an algorithm to understand — and solve — humanity’s most pressing needs,” Fast Company editors wrote in its introduction.
Many of these innovations relate to construction and building design. Modular building for the moon, autonomous sensors and routing for trucks and inside-out buildings are among Fast Company’s picks of innovative tech relevant to contractors.
