Future of Architectural Research
Research in architecture, design and the built environment is currently diversifying and reaching new directions. Technological changes, such as new materials, construction techniques and design representations, have accelerated the need for research within design disciplines. Today, research is more important than ever and it is also becoming an integral component in the design practices. The theme of ARCC 2015 Conference, the FUTURE of Architectural Research, will address these aspects and will be a primary event for researchers, faculty members, design professionals, and policy makers to discuss and set the course for the future direction of architectural research. Today, interdisciplinary research approaches that address advanced materials, building technologies, environmental and energy concerns, computational design, automation in construction, design delivery methods, and project management are essential for advancing the state of knowledge relating to the design of built environment. This conference will address these topics, and will also aim to define the future course of architectural research.
