sg2013 will be held in London next week
April 11th, 2013 by Susan Smith
sg2013 “Constructing for Uncertainty” will be at The Bartlett / UCL, London, UK from 15-20 April 2013. The Workshop and Conference, hosted in part by Bentley Systems, is an unusual gathering of innovators and pioneers committed to finding new approaches in the fields of architecture, design and engineering.
The description of the conference is: “Constructing for Uncertainty will transition computational design from the hard space of the ideal to the soft reality of an uncertain built environment,” according to published literature. In years past, research has taken the participants into the realms of materials science, 3D printing and many other groundbreaking technologies in an exploration of what might be the tools to build future structures.
“Design and construction, increasingly more information-centric, simultaneously has to deal with issues of computational ambiguity. As designers, we must deal with the realities of our context, both material and immaterial, and how it manifests from the micro to macro scale in spaces, buildings and cities.”
AECCafe will be in London next week for sg2013 and reporting from there.
The event will be in two parts, a four day Workshop 15-18 April, and a public conference beginning with Talkshop 19 April, followed by a Symposium 20 April. The event follows the format of the highly successful preceding events sg2010 Barcelona, sg2011 Copenhagen, and sg2012 Troy.
