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. On the one hand this opens up new horizons for architecture. On the other hand, the architectural context also poses new problems to geometry. Around these problems the research area of architectural geometry is emerging. It is situated at the border of applied geometry and architecture.
This symposium will bring together researchers from the fields of architecture and geometry to discuss recent advances in research and practice and to identify and address the most challenging problems. We aim at connecting researchers from architectural practices and academia. The event consists of two parts, two days of hands-on workshops followed by two days of oral and poster presentations in conference style, including four keynote speakers.
Advances in Architectural Geometry is planned to be the premier venue for disseminating new research ideas and cutting-edge results at the interface of geometry processing and architectural design. This emerging area draws from architectural design, applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering.
We are in particular inviting submissions related to the following topics:
* geometric methods for architectural design and manufacturing
* digital fabrication techniques in architecture and engineering
* design and fabrication optimization in construction
* approximation and meshing of freeform geometry
* applied discrete differential geometry
* geometric aspects of visualization
* interactive techniques
* digital reconstruction
