Themes

  • February 15: Society + City

  • Buildings, places and urban quarters need an identi-ty, a tangible story, a narrative. More than ever, project developers and planners are exchanging ideas about the future of the city: Revitalisation of brownfield sites, transformation of existing buildings and reuse strategies require tools that translate the analogue with digital instruments. From big data to multidisciplinary analyses of places and urban space to urban consulting: Best practice for decision-makers and for strategic urban development.
  • February 16: ArtificialIntelligence + Production

  • Today, society, science and industry cannot be imagi-ned without artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics. Concrete applications can be found in almost every area of public life: public safety, traffic, transport and logistics to manufacturing, maintenance, service and support. Recent developments in the AI industry for architectural applications will be presented: Innovative fabrication enabling architecture by coupling digital technologies with the physical building process.
  • February 17: Academic Research + Practice

  • At the universities, the effects of digital change are researched and simulated and the impact on social and societal contexts as well as on architectural and planning contexts is examined. The development of tools and the collection of mass data for sound analysis and simulation are also research and development topics at universities. A link between science and practice and an interdisciplinary exchange are the focus of this thematic block: disciplines from architecture, structural design, materials science, computer science, control engineering and robotics will have their say to explain building of tomorrow.
