Event Description

A symposium on the role of digital technologies in architectural education and practice.

In an age of ubiquitous computing and ever-increasing connectivity, how can the profession of architecture evolve and adapt to a constantly shifting technological landscape? How can architecture schools take on a more proactive leadership role within the discipline and develop curricular initiatives that fully engage with the dramatic transformations occurring in practice? This three-day symposium to be held at the University of Minnesota College of Design’s School of Architecture will pose these questions and explore alternative professional and curricular approaches to incorporating digital technologies in architectural design. Invited participants active in both practice and academia will present case studies demonstrating innovative use of digital technology in realms of design, collaboration, fabrication, and construction. Monica Ponce de Leon, Dean of the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at University of Michigan and President of Monica Ponce de Leon Studio, will be delivering one of the keynote lectures; the roster of additional guests is forthcoming.
