The Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture is an international network of digital design researchers and professionals. We facilitate critical investigations into the role of computation in architecture, planning, and building science, encouraging innovation in design creativity, sustainability, and education.
Hybrids & Haecceities
Hybrids & Haecceities seeks novel approaches to design and research that dissolve binary conditions and inherent hierarchies in order to embrace new modes of practice. Haecceities describe the qualities or properties of objects that define them as unique. Concurrently, Hybrids are entities with characteristics enhanced by the process of combining two or more elements with different properties. In concert, these terms offer a provocation toward more inclusive and specific forms of computational design.
The 2022 ACADIA conference will be held in person at the University of Pennsylvania Weitzman School of Design in Philadelphia, PA and will feature peer-reviewed, juried, and curated content, as well as keynotes and panel discussions.
