Digital Crafting Symposium 2 in Copenhagen

Digital Crafting Symposium 2 - Consequences
Date: 25. Nov 2011 - 10.30h - 17.30h
Venue: Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Design and Conservation
Copenhagen - Denmark

Today digital technologies inform all levels of building practice. As a link between representation, design, analysis and production, digital technologies are both practical tools to optimize existing practice as well as speculative media 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 modeling 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.
