Acadia 2014 Design Agency
Projects of the 34th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture
The Projects Catalogue of the ACADIA 2014: DESIGN AGENCY international conference contains jury selected and curated research and practice projects of the 34th annual conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture. Projects by researchers, practitioners, students and by the ACADIA partner organization Tex-Fab are included. This volume brings together a spectrum of research and creative practice currently occurring within the ACADIA community. This combined research reflects new paradigms that are redefining contemporary architecture. Specialized computational design topics include cloud organization, big data, global project delivery, and new forms of collective intelligence in design, architecture, urbanism, fabrication and media arts. The event is supported by the combined research networks of the University of Southern California, University of California Los Angeles and Southern California Institute of Architecture.
