ACCELERATED DESIGN

Can and should design be accelerated? To what extent and to what end? Or perhaps, design must decelerate instead? Accelerated Design is an urgent call for a critical reflection of and creative action by architecture during this challenging time of accelerating climate crisis, unrestricted data surveillances, generative AI copyright infringements, global geopolitical conflicts, hyperconcentration of digital power, post-pandemic mental health deterioration, and widespread disinformation attacks.

CAADRIA2024 seeks contributions in addressing the conference theme by discussing and debating the role of design and designers in the midst of accelerated changes brought about by and on technology, economy, environment, and governance, to construct new ways of thinking, teaching, researching and practising architecture in the age of artificial intelligence and climate change.

The 29th Annual Conference for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA) brings together academics, researchers, and practitioners to contribute to the fields of computational design methods, instruments, and processes towards an inclusive future for humans and non-humans. Contributions focusing on the Asia / Pacific context are particularly encouraged.

CO-CREATE OUR KEY VISUAL

For the first time in the history of CAADRIA, the CAADRIA 2024 edition seeks the participation of everyone in contributing to its generative visual identity. Like a CAPTCHA, it captures the inputs from you (a full human). But unlike a CAPTCHA, it acknowledges your authorship and contribution to a collective AI training set. If you will, an experiment to reflect, act, and express the acceleration of design in the age of AI.

The acceleration of design starts now! This crowdsourced effort will then be showcased at the conference itself!

It’s simple to participate:

1) CREATE: 

  • Click anywhere on the gradient bar to add a black/white colour
  • Drag any selected marker to adjust the gradient

2) CONTRIBUTE:

  • Once your gradient is perfectly crafted to your liking, just hit ‘contribute’.
  • Take note of the ID number that pops up—this will be your design contribution details.

3) VISUALISE:

  • Once contributed, you’ll immediately see your gradient blend into the key visual at the top of the site.

4) EXPLORE:

  • Curious about what others have contributed? You can explore other contributions through the dropdown menu below the key visual.
