CAADRIA 2015 Call for Papers
500-Word Abstract Due September 26, 2014
Emerging Experiences in the Past, Present, and Future of Digital Architecture
18-23 May 2015
Kyungpook National University (KNU), Daegu, Republic of Korea
(http://caadria2015.org/index.php)

The adoption of computational processes in architecture has transformed the way we think, design and make, thereby enhancing our understanding, skills and performance in architectural design and research. Since 1996, CAADRIA has contributed to the exchange of information relating to studies and technologies in architecture and design by promoting dialogue, collaboration, and the dissemination of information among leading researchers and practitioners in the field of digital architecture. CAADRIA 2015 celebrates the twenty-year history of CAADRIA with the theme, “Emerging Experiences in the Past, Present, and Future of Digital Architecture”.

The concept of emerging experience originated from the field of Human–Computer Interaction (HCI), and means ‘novel computer interaction and experience’. The theme for CAADRIA 2015 encompasses the total complement of effective innovation and experiences of digital technologies and design research over the twenty years of CAADRIA’s existence. By reflecting on the past, speculating about the present, and exploring the future of digital architecture in CAADRIA, we intend to inspire and to share innovative ideas, emphasizing a cross-disciplinary context in technologies in architecture to promote research in CAAD which enhances creativity.

Besides the above specific themes, CAADRIA 2015 also invites submissions of original research papers and posters on general topics in computational design research, including but not limited to the following topics:

‧ Computational design research and education
‧ Computational design analysis
‧ Generative, algorithmic and evolutionary design
‧ Digital fabrication and construction
‧ Collaborative and collective design
‧ Design cognition
‧ Virtual/augmented reality and interactive environments
‧ Virtual architecture and city modeling
‧ Human-computer interaction
‧ Ubiquitous and mobile computing
‧ Practice-based and interdisciplinary computational design research
‧ Theory, philosophy and methodology of computational design research
‧ Simulation and Visualization
‧ Building Information Modeling
‧ Architectural Materials and 3D Printing

Young researchers currently involved in postgraduate studies are invited to submit their work-in-progress research papers to the CAADRIA2015 Postgraduate Student Consortium.

500-Word Abstract Due September 7, 2013

Rethinking Comprehensive Design: Speculative Counterculture 19th
International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural
Design Research in Asia

May 14-17, 2014
Kyoto Institute of Technology, Kyoto, Japan http://caadria2014.org

Influenced by Buckminster Fuller’s holistic worldview, the concept of
Comprehensive Design was proliferated by the publication of the Whole Earth
Catalog, an American counterculture publication, by Stewart Brand in the
late 1960s and early 1970s. The catalogue featured innovative ideas,
scientific discoveries, and technological advancements that demonstrated the
interconnectedness of the environment and human activities. It emphasized
the need for cross-disciplinary approaches towards understanding and
nurturing our complex world. This concept also inspired a generation of
computer engineers and programmers to view technology as a tool for
individual empowerment and collective transformation.

45 years have passed since then, and now the concept of Comprehensive Design
has evolved from a utopian idea to an actualized design tool. It not only
transformed the way we network seamlessly, linking the physical with
information and solving complex problems via advanced computational
processes, but it also democratized and domesticated technology by offering
an alternative trajectory for more open, creative, comprehensive, societies.
“Rethinking Comprehensive Design” provides a cross-disciplinary context for
the challenging mainstream culture of computation and invites researchers
and practitioners alike to speculate and explore the potential of
counterculture with an emphasis on four
themes:

Complex calculations to explore, discover, optimize, and achieve design
intentions High volume real-time data with ubiquitous social network Cloud
computing to collaborate design processes via open source network
Integration of advanced materialization and fabrication processes

Besides the above specific themes, CAADRIA 2014 also invites submissions of
original research papers and posters on general topics in computational
design research, including but not limited to the following topics:

Computational design research and education Computational design analysis
Generative, parametric and evolutionary design Digital fabrication and
construction Collaborative and collective design User participation in
design Shape studies Design cognition Digital aids to design creativity New
digital design concepts and strategies Virtual/augmented reality and
interactive environments Virtual architecture and city modeling
Human-computer interaction Ubiquitous and mobile computing Practice-based
and interdisciplinary computational design research Theory, philosophy and
methodology of computational design research

Young researchers currently involved in postgraduate studies are invited to
submit their work-in-progress research papers to the CAADRIA2014
Postgraduate Student Consortium.

CAADRIA 2013 Open Systems ⎯ Call for Papers Abstract due September 1, 2012

Open Systems

The 18th International Conference of the
Association of Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA) May 15-18, 2013
National University of Singapore

http://www.caadria2013.org

Contemporary challenges require inclusively integrated approaches to designing. Constrained by established modes of practice, such integration is impossible without a radical commitment to openness. In response to this need, CAADRIA 2013 invites contributions that engage with open systems in all aspects of architectural and urban design: open with respect to the scale of the design objectives and the context, from a building component within a building system to a neighbourhood or city within its urban and rural context; open with respect to the domains being considered, from planning to sustainable performance of a building or city; open with respect to the collaboration of disciplines and participants, from ad-hoc brainstorming to a rigorous process of consultation and feedback; open with respect to design methods and techniques, from physical modelling to digital prototyping; open with respect to design models and representations being adopted, from a parametric exploration to an ontological delineation considering Building Information Modelling, Built Environment Modelling or City Information Modelling; open with respect to the tools and applications being adopted, despite interoperability issues, from modelling to simulation and assessment; open with respect to the learning approach being adopted, from informal interaction and sharing to formal design education; open with respect to the open source approach being adopted in research and development, in order to gather community involvement and use.

By focusing on the theme of Open Systems, CAADRIA 2013 aims to explore all these aspects and more, and raise awareness to the need of overstepping disciplinary boundaries and reaching creative communities at all levels of expertise, by pooling resources, knowledge and practices, and integrating them through the adoption of open systems.

CAADRIA 2013 invites submissions of original research papers and posters on topics in computational architectural design research, including but not limited to the following subjects:

  • Computational design research and education
  • Modes of production
  • Digital fabrication and construction
  • New design concepts and strategies
  • Mass customization
  • Collaborative design
  • Digital aids to design creativity
  • User participation in design
  • Generative, parametric and evolutionary design
  • Virtual architecture
  • Shape studies
  • Virtual reality and interactive environments
  • Precedence and prototypes
  • Ubiquitous and mobile design computing
  • Design tool development
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Simulation, prediction, and evaluation
  • City modelling
  • Practice-based and interdisciplinary computational design research
  • Theory, philosophy and methodology of computational design research
