DIGITAL PHYSICALITY | PHYSICAL DIGITALITY

CALL FOR PAPERS

Digitality is the condition of living in a world where ubiquitous information and communication technology is embedded in the physical world. Although it is possible to point out what is “digital” and what is “real,” the distinction has become pointless, and it has no more explanatory power for our environment, buildings, and behaviour.

Material objects are invested with communication means, teams are communicating even when not together, and buildings can sense and respond to the environment, each other, and to inhabitants. Digital is no longer an add-on, extra, or separate software. Reality is partly digital and partly physical. The implication of this condition is not clear however, and we need to investigate its potential. We have to search for new strategies that acknowledge the synergetic qualities of the physical and the digital. This is not limited to artifacts or what we design, but it also influences the process, methods, and what or how we teach. For the conference therefore, we are looking for contributions that explore this synergy. Authors are encouraged to submit their work on the conference theme.

Subjects may be, but are not limited to:

.    CAAD curriculum.
.    Modes of production.
.    New design concepts and strategies.
.    Mass customization.
.    Collaborative design.
.    Digital aids to design creativity.
