DigitalCrafting Symposium 2: Consequences

Date: Friday 25.11.2011 – 10.30h-17.30h

Venue: Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Design and Conservation

Auditorium 2- Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation
Main Entrance Danneskiold Samsøs Alle, Holmen


Today digital technologies inform all levels of building practice. As a link between representation, design, analysis and production, digital technologies are both practical tools by which to optimise existing practice as well as speculative media by which to explore its future. By facilitating exchange and feedback between the different knowledge fields of design, engineering and crafts, digital technology holds the potential to effect new answers to the complex challenges of contemporary building practice.

The second Digital Crafting symposium will discuss the future perspectives for a new integrated digital practice. Inviting practitioners from the fields of architecture, engineering and theory to share their experiences and present recent work, the symposium aims to unfold new visions for thinking the links between design, analysis and fabrication. With a focus on interdisciplinary collaboration, bottom up thinking and complex modelling we ask how the shared digital platform can create new material strategies for design.

Digital Crafting is hosted by CITA Centre for IT and Architecture, Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Design and Conservation.

The DigitalCrafting symposium addresses practitioners, researchers and students from the fields of architecture, engineering and construction. The symposium is free and open to the public. Due to demand and to support organisation we ask you email your participation:
