IAAC Educational Programmes Win the ACADIA Award of Excellence

IAAC has been one of the special guests at the 2018 ACADIA’s Mexico City Conference, that took place this October under the title of: Recalibration – On Imprecision and Infidelity.

For being at the forefront of academic innovation, last April IAAC Educational Programmes were awarded with the ACADIA’s Innovative Academic Programme Award of Excellence. This year the conference emphasises the precision of the digital tools used for architectural design.

The ACADIA 2018 event aims to re-calibrate the discourse of computational design research by attempting to build a cross-border dialogue between art, computing and technology-driven communities and re-examine boundaries to provide a moment of self-reflection in the field of architecture and computation. This year the conference in Mexico City emphasizes the precision of the digital tools used for architectural design (robots, digital fabrication, BIM) and excessive precision that forces to obsessively control any outcome.

The conference wants to bring together the different sensibilities in the field of computational design and wants to contribute to the dialogue aimed at promoting a redefinition of traditional tools and processes in the field of experimentation and production.
