ARCHITECTURAL REVOLUTION

The world is seeing an insurgent change in societal, economical and territorial values. While the concerns of over population, suburban sprawls, ecology, and temporality have been raised within the fields of architecture, planning and urban designing,designers are increasingly being supported by growing technology and innovations trying to keep up with the advances of the world. During such times one is intrigued to notice these emerging developments are a reaction to the diversity of needs, culture, climate, landscape and economies and an invariable part of modern day existence.

It is the time to comprehend the paradigm shift in the role of the architectin this Revolution.361 Degree Conference 2017- ‘Architectural Revolution’, aims to discuss these reactions to the challenges of designing in the digital century. From digitally enhanced designs, to invisible architecture, to the latest 3-D Printed modules, the digital era has served as an impetus to several untried design processes. Architecture and Urban planning act as practical catalysts for building resilient lives, to exist in harmony with the ecosystem and local resources. The theme attempts to create discourses about the‘Architecture of the Future’ whichentails todevelop and realise experimental processes to encourage constant engagement as well as permanence.

The two tracks through which the theme will be investigated are:

  1. Digitised Design:
    This track attempts to analyse the impact of advances in technology towards enhancing digital design solutions. With an unavoidable need to create fast and interactive architecture, new material innovation in architecture is imperative while exploring innovation and technology in architecture.
  2. Responses in Architecture:
    This track lays emphasis on architecture being an immediate response to its contexts of world situations. It is eminent that architects comprehend the ‘contexts’ of response to location, environment, political and social settings, and their evolvement through time. This track aims to discuss the evolution and advancements of these responses to design as we approach towards revolutionising processes.
