    Beat.Wave is proto-architecture that tests absurd geometries in a digital design and the production process. Only the outline of a 3-d digital model was given to contractors, who were then asked to propose structural and material possibilities with new materials and construction solutions. Using recent developments in digital design and computerized production that short-cut experience and skill - challenging us to rethink conventional concepts of design and craft - beat.wave playfully tests the potential of new models of collaboration.

    Forum for Design Languages (FDL) is a well established international forum devoted to dissemination of research results, practical experiences and new ideas in the application of specification, design and verification languages to the design, modelling and verification of integrated circuits, complex hardware/software embedded systems, and mixed-technology systems. Modelling and specification concepts push the development of new design and verification methodologies to system level thus providing a means for model-driven design of complex information processing systems in a variety of
    application domains. One of the principal advantages of FDL is that it brings together four related thematic areas and gives an opportunity to gain up-to-date knowledge in many broad areas of the fast evolving field of system design and verification.
