ACADIA 2015 COMPUTATIONAL ECOLOGIES


Date:  October 22nd-24th
Location: University of Cincinnati School of Architecture and Interior Design

ACADIA is an international network of digital design researchers and professionals. ACADIA supports critical investigations into the role of computation in architecture, planning, and building science, encouraging innovation in design creativity, sustainability, and education.

This year’s conference, titled Design in the Anthropocene will host the following themes/topics:
• Material science (biomaterials, computational materials, etc.)
• Computational / mimetic design (bio-formalism, geo-formalism, etc.)
• Human / nonhuman architectural programming (computational and actual)
• Environmental parametrics / performance modeling
• Emerging models of digital representation / fabrication
• GIS mapping / data analysis in relation to landscape and urban design
• Geomatics (composite materials and smart assemblies)
• Responsive systems and environments (sensing, real-time computation, actuation, and feedback)
• Climate modeling

From the CCA Digital Craft Lab, Andrew Kudless will be receiving the Award of Teaching Excellence and giving a lecture at the conference, Adam Marcus is presenting a project paper on his recently completed Meander project, (also exhibited at the conference).
