Geometry lies at the core of the architectural design process. It is omnipresent, from the initial form-finding stages to the final construction. Modern geometric computing provides a variety of tools for the efficient design, analysis, and manufacturing of complex shapes.

spacePresentation picture from our ResearchspaceThis workshop will bring together researchers from the field of architecture geometry ,  leading sustainability professionals and stakeholders to discuss, debate and share best practice on design, construction and the built environment.
Attendance will provide you with the most recent advances in research & practice and to get the chance to identify and address the most challenging problems. We aim at connecting researchers from architectural and engineering practices, academia and industry.
