The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) are pleased to partner on this 3rd annual symposium, dedicated to the integration of... More > education, research and practice of technologies at the 2017 AIA National Conference in Orlando. This symposium focuses on COLLABORATION. New technology and ways of working are helping to break down barriers between the different players in the construction process. Industry leaders already do a great deal to encourage collaboration among their teams, providing vision, collaboration-conducive work environments, collaboration technology, and by removing obstacles. Collaboration also happens outside the traditional AEC industry, between architects and cognitive scientists, between architects and community organizers, etc.< Less

Papers from the 103rd ACSA Annual Meeting in Toronto. In recent years, discussions and conferences within the discipline have debated how architecture should respond to the radical technological,... More > social, and environmental changes happening in societies around the world. A crisis is perceived with the concern that architecture is out of touch with the ever-emerging present and is being marginalized through its inability to adapt. Nonetheless, many new practices have emerged, seizing the opportunities that present themselves as situations change.< Less

This conference considers the potential of Design-Build in post-secondary education. It is interested in expanding this potential, developing ideas to improve delivery and efficacy, and reflecting on... More > Design-Build as pedagogy and practice. The conference is interested in first-hand reports comparing the pedagogical contexts of Design-Build as well as rigorous surveys ranging across many schools. Above all, it is interested in analyzing the conditions of the project before, during, and after construction. The ACSA underlined the recent increase in Design-Build courses in North America, with the introduction of a Design-Build Award in 2012. It is now included in over 70% of our curricula. Design-Build can be as big as the entire curriculum or as small as an elective; it can take place in a school’s courtyard or halfway across the world; it can be demolished at the end of the semester or become a permanent part of a community; and it can innovate in all imaginable ways.< Less
2014 ACSA International Conference Paper Proceedings By ACSA Press

A fascinating and culturally-based urbanism has emerged in Asia and elsewhere, fueled by aggressive investment in education, technology, and innovation. It is hoped that concentration on these... More > new-age tools will advance the most culturally sophisticated lifestyles possible, and in so doing reverse the trend of Westernization in favor of a more globalized world-view. The result is unprecedented–a premier service-industry city typology, a new open city, a paradigm of a global post-industrial city. In those cities that have actively engaged this type of development, its effects are far-reaching and unprecedented, in particular for the design industries upon whose skill and innovation all services rely. Traditional systems of Western urbanism cannot be applied to the development of the new post-industrial city; they simply cannot cope with the demands posed by: the integration of new types of service/culture programs, application of technological advancements, and development/density/performance criteria.< Less

New design strategies begin... More > to appear, even as exchange across Southern and Northern Hemispheres expands and begins to shape our discipline. Evidence of unsung innovation suggests a need for deeper inquiry into the effects of disglobal forces. What is driving these emerging post-global narratives? How will the indeterminacy of these narratives inform design discourse and the broader practice of architecture? Architecture as a discipline moves across different scales, regions, patrons, technological contexts, and opportunities. This conference aspires to reveal productive tensions through cross-American encounters, and, in so doing, to unveil the richness of disglobal narratives.< Less

Evidence of unsung innovation suggests a need for deeper inquiry into the effects of disglobal forces. This ACSA conference travels to the Southern Hemisphere for the first time since 1998, and only for the second time in its history. Our focus is to probe the shifting nature of north-south connections and discourses, and to expose the new modes of engagement between professional practice and architectural academia. This conference attempts to reflect on the highly lucid and fruitful production of architectural thinking from the professional and academic progressive communities of the world.< Less

In its material, cultural, and economic effects, architecture poses essential and unavoidable ethical quandaries and challenges. In its performative capacity to express ideology, architecture is... More > inexorably entangled in questions of power and legitimation. As part of an interconnected global economic infrastructure that consumes natural resources at an alarming rate, architecture raises new and pressing questions with which educators, practitioners, and students must engage. Architecture as practice and as discipline and pedagogy struggles to solve problems and to advance culture. Within this struggle the discipline faces an ambiguity of values and agenda. The relationship between these two purposes, problem solving and cultural advancement, often exists as a rift, a great chasm filled with nuanced dilemmas related to ethics and power.< Less
