The second International Conference on Biodigital Architecture and Genetics follows the very successful first edition of the conference in Barcelona (2011).
Biodigital Architecture and Genetics implies a new approach to the new cybernetic-digital and ecological-environmental architectural design process intended to harmonise new technologies with nature. This involves ideas such as genetics in the biological and digital spheres and experimentation with genetic driven software, evolutionary processes, emerging systems, algorithms, parametrics, scripting, etc. Another important issue is the new formulations of non-standard architecture based on genetic principles such as variation, mutation or hybridisation.
The list of topics gives an idea of the scope of the conference and the workshops.
Biodigital Architecture and Genetics is very multi-disciplinary by definition, attracting, in addition to architects, many other professionals. In that regard the conference participants and the workshop participants, as well as architects, are expected to be engineers, planners, physical scientists, sociologists and economists, providing all of them an opportunity to share information and ideas with their colleagues from different regions around the world.
