CAADRIA 2016 Call for Papers - Abstracts due 25 September!

Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing
21st International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia

30 March - 2 April 2016
Abstract due: 25 September 2015
Submit to:

The University of Melbourne, Melbourne School of Design (MSD), Melbourne, Australia; in collaboration with RMIT University

Today, human activities constitute the primary environmental impact on the planet. In this context, commitments to sustainability, or minimization of damage, prove insufficient. To develop regenerative, capabilities, architectural design needs to extend beyond the form and function of things in contained projects and engage with the management of complex systems. Such systems involve multiple types of dynamic phenomena – biotic and abiotic, technical and cultural – and can be understood as living. Engagement with such living systems implies manipulation of pervasive and unceasing change, irrespective of whether it is accepted by design stakeholders or actively managed towards homeostatic or homeorhetic conditions.

Responding to this challenge, CAADRIA 2016 seeks to interrogate the notion of continuity and the applicable architectural toolsets in order to map and discover opportunities for innovation.
