Association for Computer-Aided Design in Architecture 2014 International Conference
CONFERENCE: October 23-25, 2014 Los Angeles, California, US
WORKSHOPS and TOUR: October 20-22 & 26, 2014 Los Angeles
The ACADIA2014: DESIGN AGENCY conference will be held in Los Angeles, California at the USC School of Architecture on October 23-25, 2014.
DESIGN AGENCY will bring together the spectrum of research and creative practice currently occurring within the ACADIA community through the combined support of the research networks of the University of Southern California, University of California Los Angeles and Southern California Institute of Architecture. Questions the capacity for computation to inform or challenge traditional design processes; computation as design operation - the capacity, condition, or state of acting or of exerting power, and/or computation as design instrumentality - the design mechanism through which power is exerted or an end is achieved.
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.
