Please send your essay for peer-reviewing no later than 15 October 2015.

 

How can materiality and materialism be rethought in the rich and multifaceted context of contemporary computational architecture, and in the systemic context of pervasive computer simulations? How can this context nourish integration, build bridges, break barriers, alleviate fragmentation and clustering and above all nourish, foster, promote and advance innovation, while paying attention to the most important social challenges we are facing regarding the deep impact of technological changes? 

The conference invites architects and designers, engineers, software developers, mathematicians, biologists, materials and computer scientists, philosophers, theorists and educators to present their views on the question: What’s the Matter when rethinking materiality and materialism at the age of computation in design-related practice ranging from the small scale of object design to large scale cities?
