DADA 2015

——The 5th DigitalFUTURE Shanghai Summer Events (Shanghai: 27 June -5 July, 2015)

Workshop Registration & Call for Workshop Proposals 


The 2nd series academic events of DADA is organized by Digital Architecture Design Association (DADA) in China, College of Architecture and Urban Planning (CAUP) in Tongji University and Tongji Architectural Design Group (TJAD) Co., Ltd., co-organized by Architecture School in Tsinghua University and School of Architecture and Urban Planning in Nanjing University. The event includes Workshop, International Conference and Exhibition. It is the premier biennial events in China for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of Digital Design and Fabrication. The international conference will be held in CAUP, Tongji University. The theme of the conference will be “Digital Factory”. Any architecture students, scholars, architects and others who are interest in the field are welcome to register and participate in the events.

I. Theme

As China is reaching the mature point of urbanization, architecture industry, which was the leading industry in national economy, faces the two great challenges: 1. The emergence of new building technology and building materials that will change the architecture design as well as building method; 2. The sustainability of building technology and construction method under the increasing pressure of energy shortage. With the help of advance digital simulation based on the numerical control platform, digital architecture design and fabrication itself has the unparalleled advantages compare to the traditional fabrication method. As an important part of the whole digital architecture system-“parametric-design-form-fabrication”, it does not only directly incorporate the accurate input of environmental, behavior, structural and materi- al parameter, but also can dock quantified data and coordinate development from the very beginning of design. Through the infiltration of different parameters, the digital design meth- odology is deriving to process control and manufacturing which is more associated with architecture ontology itself.

“Digital Factory” is a necessary condition for intelligent industrialization of architecture industry. Through the effective integration of computer-aided design and digital manufactur- ing, “Digital Factory” explores the new method of digital fabrication developed from the extraction of performative parameter and the form generated from architectural form finding. Architecture for the future is becoming customized, digital, prefabricated and industrialized. Through the docking with digital factory to directly produce and assemble, it will drive the revolutionary transformation of architectural paradigm.
The mission of “Digital Factory” is to unite the avant-guard architects and institutes in digital design and fabrication. It is organized by DADA and supported by CAUP, Tongji University and the architecture school in Tsinghua University. The aim is to discuss the challenges as well as opportunities that digital design and architecture industrialization will bring to the traditional
design mode.
