Theme: Global Design & Local Materialization

When designers work internationally with all kinds of new technologies, they still have the final output materialized somewhere on the earth. Inside such a combination, global design and local materialization can be sources of either inspiration or constraints in design, which also drive tool development, design process, and method into a new stage.


This conference will provide a forum for the presentation of the latest research, architecture practice and pedagogical results through an invitation for original papers that will be internationally refereed.

  • CAAD curriculum.
