algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Smartgeometry is pleased to announce that sg2016 will be held at the Chalmers University of Technology, in Gothenburg, Sweden, from 4-9 April 2016.
After four intense days of innovative work, the conference offers an opportunity for critical reflection on the topic of Hybrid Domains and the exposition of what has been accomplished in the Workshop. It is an opportunity to open debates, pose questions, challenge orthodoxies, and propose new ideas.
The conference will feature invited international keynote speakers showcasing major projects and research from around the globe that mark out the territory of the year's Challenge. Between keynote presentations it will also feature informal and open discussions between the speakers, invited respondents, leading practitioners, emerging talents in digital design and Cluster participants, offering inside perspectives on how computational design is creating hybrid disciplines.
The theme: hybrid domains
The act of producing architecture is a collaborative, interdisciplinary exercise. With new digital tools comes the potential for new knowledge, new collaborations, and new ways of thinking. At sg2016, designers and researchers are challenged question how they work and connect and borrow from other disciplines, thereby creating new hybrid disciplines.
