Advances in Architectural Geometry 2012 – Paris

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 RhinoGrasshopper 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
