Objectives

IWeDA 2021 The Next Level will showcase cutting-edge digital architecture and anticipate the coming new world of digital-based architecture.

Digital Architecture (DA) is not about drawing a building using a computer. It is about exploring, utilizing, embedding information technology products into the architecture world. The role of digital technology in architecture design started, as most people believe, when we applied computer-aided architecture design. Since all the design processes are happening in our brain, a computer is just a tool. A computer is just our added-hands. Now, we see digital technology is advancing beyond our imagination. The development of artificial intelligence (and artificial emotion) offers new ways of using computers. Digital computation comprehensively involves in the architecture design process. A laptop becomes our added-brain. The webinar expects around 150 participants, including professional architects, academics, students, and public.

Topics

DA is advancing thanks to the new crazy ideas and sophisticated software and hardware development. Innovation in DA will create a future un-precedented architecture world. This International Webinar on Digital Architecture (IWeDA) challenges anyone to share their brightest ideas on embedding digital technology into the architecture world. DA will discuss topics, but not limited, on:

Group 1:
The Digital Architecture
Education and Works

History of digital architecture

Philosophy of digital architecture

Digital technology in architecture education

Best practices of digital application in architectural works

Presentation techniques (animation, holograph, etc.)

Simulation (lighting, acoustics, ventilation, structure, tsunami, earthquake, fire, urban heat island, etc.)

Digital fabrication

Group 2:
The Technology Development
of Digital Architecture

Human activities (public movement, body movement, etc.)

Gameworld (virtual architecture, avatar, cyberspace, etc.)

Hardware and software supporting digital architecture (big data, laser 3D scanner, etc.)

Artificial intelligence (machine learning, deep learning, neuro-computer interface, etc.)

Group 3:
The Future of Architecture
Design and Research as Influenced
by Digital Architecture

Mixed reality (hyper-reality, augmented virtual reality, etc.)

Digital architect (design automation, architect-less architecture design, etc.)

Intelligent architecture (smart building, building automation, etc.)
