Advances in Architectural Geometry (AAG)
ETH Zurich Hoenggerberg Campus, Zurich (Switzerland)
Sep 9-13, 2016
Geometry lies at the core of the architectural design process. It is omnipresent, from the initial form-finding stages to the final construction. Modern geometric computing provides a variety of tools for the efficient design, analysis, and manufacturing of complex shapes. This opens up new horizons for architecture. But it also poses new geometry problems. Around these problems the research area of architectural geometry has emerged, located at the common border of applied geometry and architecture.
Advances in Architectural Geometry (AAG) is a symposium to present both theoretical and practical work linked to new geometrical developments. This symposium aims to gather the diverse components of the contemporary architectural tendencies which push the building envelope towards free form and respond to the many current design challenges.
It involves architects, engineers, mathematicians, software designers, and contractors. AAG connects researchers from architectural and engineering practises, academia, and industry. AAG has become a reference in the professional field and is supported by the direct participation of the most renowned architectural design and engineering offices along with academic laboratories.
The current edition will be held in Zurich, from September 9 to September 13 2016.
Conference: September 11-13, 2016
Workshops: September 9-11, 2016
Call for Papers
Abstracts must be submitted by March 21, 2016. Abstracts will be assessed to pre-categorize papers and to assign appropriate expert reviewers from the scientific committee.
Full Papers should be submitted for peer review no later than April 1, 2016.
