CAADRIA 2010: 15th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia
The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
7-10 April, 2010

We are facing unprecedented challenges in our natural & human-made, cultural, social & built environments. Working at the intersection of human needs, creative innovation, education, critical thinking, computing, science, design & technology, CAAD practitioners & researchers are uniquely placed to engage with these challenges & frontiers.

Especially our Asian context, with its philosophical richness and its rising influence on the world stage, offers NEW FRONTIERS to develop relevant discourses and, possibly, appropriate cures.

CAADRIA 2010 now calls for Papers, Round-table seminars, Posters, Exhibitions, Workshops & Postgraduate Students’ research that address these NEW FRONTIERS:

  • Intelligence & Cognition
  • Research & Practice
  • Human & Computer
  • Theory & Philosophy
  • Education & Learning
  • Culture & Heritage
  • Ubiquity & Environment
  • Collaboration & Community
  • Computation & Information
  • Generative & Parametric
  • Modelling & Process
  • Visualization & Animation
  • Simulation & Testing
  • Virtuality & Reality

The 15th CAADRIA Conference will be co-hosted by the School of Architecture & the Institute of Space & Earth Information Science at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Hong Kong’s exceptional environment allows for rich experiences that are unique & broadening. CAADRIA fosters research, education & praxis in advancing knowledge & understanding in digital design methods in architecture. We cordially invite you to submit your contributions.
