FUTURE TRADITIONS conference & workshops



FUTURE TRADITIONS
1st eCAADe Regional International Meeting
4-5 April 2013, FAUP, Porto

The debate around the impact of digital technologies in architecture is usually centered around the discovery of new possibilities for the practice and theory of the discipline.

However, the past and its traditions may also play an important role in the future of architecture.

After 50 years of technological assimilation, architects have today the necessary distance to embrace a critical reflection about how computers support the dynamics of continuity or rupture in the discipline.

To understand how digital technologies can contribute to rethink the traditions of the discipline and to inspire its future, is the main goal of the “Future Traditions” event.

This 1st eCAADe International Regional Workshop is going to be held at the Faculty of Architecture, at the University of Porto, in April 2013.
