School of Architecture Tectonics Symposium

Traditional and Emergent Material Processes in Architecture conferred to make visible the process of design and construction that emanate from Emergent and Traditional Material Experiments and Fabrication Technologies. Speakers hold a range of experience relevant to the design and construction of comple geometries, from the handcrafting of exceptional architectural component to the the development of state-of-the-art building modeling, fabrication and management software. A series of lectures and workshops will beheld with focus on the status of analogue, mathematical and physical modeling in contemporary practice.

Lectures are free and open to the public.
