Advances in Architectural Geometry (AAG) is a bi-annual symposium addressing the community of computer scientists, mathematicians, engineers and architects. It aims to connect academia and industry through presentations and discussions of innovation in geometric and computational applications in architecture.
The fifth edition of this biennial event will take place in Zurich, from Friday, September 9 to Tuesday, September 13.
The AAG2016 workshops will be offered by leading experts. The AAG workshops are a great opportunity for participants to encounter the latest design and fabrication tools as well as processes in architectural geometry.
In most of these workshops, participants will be using Rhinoceros and Grasshopper.
The AAG2016 conference will have Lord Norman Foster and Francis Aish, Werner Sobek, Erik Demaine and Urs B. Roth as keynote speakers. Their participation highlights the importance of AAG as a central platform for the exchange of ideas in architecture and engineering, mathematics and computer science.
Francesc Salla, VisualARQ's product manager, will also attend the conferences to discuss about the upcoming VisualARQ 2.0 version with anyone interested.
Advances in Architectural Geometry 2012
- Paris, France
- September 27th-30th
The current third edition will be held in Paris from 27th to 30th September 2012. Its attraction is reinforced by the support of the Centre Pompidou.
Advances in Architectural Geometry / AAG is a symposium presenting theoretical works and practices linked to new geometrical development applicable to architecture. This symposium aims to gather the diverse components of the contemporary architectural tendencies which push the building envelope towards free form and respond to the multiple current design challenges with a renewed mathematical rigor. It involves architects, engineers, software designers and contractors. AAG has become a reference in the professional field and is supported by the direct participation of the most renowned architectural design and engineering offices along with academic laboratories.
In an effort to link theory to practice, the symposium proposes numerous workshops where participants, teachers, students and professionals can learn and experiment with new technologies and practices reflected in the themes tackled during the symposium.
The organization is cordially inviting members of the Rhino, Grasshopper and VisualARQ communities to contribute a paper or a workshop, or simply to visit. For details about paper and workshop submission please visit the conference web page at http://aag12.architecturalgeometry.at.
As the new Product Manager of VisualARQ, I attended the conferences of eCAADe 2010 Zurich and AAG (Advances in Architectural Geometry 2010) Vienna. The main goals were to get updates from research groups together with Carlos Pérez and Giulio Piacentino from McNeel Europe and to strengthen the relationships with Rhinoceros third-party plug-in developers.
