Advances in Architectural Geometry 2014
Geometry lies at the core of the architectural design process. It is omnipresent, from the initial form-finding stages to the final construction. Modern geometric computing provides a variety of tools for the efficient design, analysis, and manufacturing of complex shapes. On the one hand this opens up new horizons for architecture. On the other hand, the architectural context also poses new problems to geometry. Around these problems the research area of architectural geometry has emerged. It is located at the common border of applied geometry and architecture.
Advances in Architectural Geometry / AAG is a symposium where both theoretical and practical work linked to new geometrical developments is presented. This symposium aims to gather the diverse components of the contemporary architectural tendencies which push the building envelope towards free form and respond to the multiple current design challenges. It involves architects, engineers, mathematicians, software designers and contractors. We aim at connecting researchers from architectural and engineering practices, academia and industry. AAG has become a reference in the professional field and is supported by the direct participation of the most renowned architectural design and engineering offices along with academic laboratories.
The current edition, the fourth, will be held in London from the 18th to 21st of September 2014.
Conference: September 18-19, 2014
Workshops: September 20-21, 2014
The event consists of two days of presentations of accepted papers, followed by two days of hands-on workshops, allowing participants, teachers, students and professionals to learn and experiment with new technologies and practices reflected in the themes tackled during the symposium.
