Rese arch MEETUP is an annual international conference and networking event bringing together practitioners and theorists of computational design in architecture, experts in digital manufacturing and related contemporary thinkers and philosophers.
Ján Pernecký of rese arch – an independent platform supporting research, education and critical thinking in architecture in Europe and worldwide – in collaboration with Francesco Cingolani of Volumes Coworking are organizing the second installment of the rese arch MEETUP, which will take place in Paris at VOLUMES coworking on 28 May 2016. The event started last year in Bratislava, Slovakia as a pilot of a regular informal conference. In December 2015 we brought together a group of brilliant speakers: Johannes Braumann (AT), Tudor Cosmatu (DE), Adriana Debnárová (SK), Alessio Erioli (IT), Daniel Koehler (AT), Stuart Maggs (ES), Ryan Vincent Manning (AT), Christoph Mueller (AT), Ján Pernecký (SK), Gilles Retsin (UK), Aldo Sollazzo (ES), Dominik Strzelec (AT), Tomáš Tholt (SK), Shota Tsikolia (CZ), Mateusz Zwierzycki (DK).
The event takes a form of a mid-size informal gathering of peer designers and researchers in the field of computational design in architecture. Each of the speakers holds a 30 minutes long lecture followed by 10 minutes Q&A session. The purpose is to update the peers of each-other’s personal projects, agendas and research. It is also a great opportunity to eventually meet in person and arrange future collaborations in a professional, yet friendly and relaxed environment. Last year the meetup revolved around the topic of behavioral simulations.
The 2016 edition of the event will take place on 28 May 2016 in Paris and will be hosted by VOLUMES, coworking and maker space for design and open innovation. One of the official supporters of the event is the prestigious École des Ponts ParisTech, which will launch in September the program Design By Data, an Advanced Master in Computational Design, Digital Manufacturing and Building Technologies.
DESIGN by DATA is also the topic of the spring 2016 edition of the rese arch MEETUP Paris hosted by Volumes: we will host lectures elaborating on the idea of a design ruled by input parameters, big data, statistics, numerical simulations and its impact on the essence of architecture as a cultural discipline. We would yet again like to bring together theorists, practitioners and evangelists in the given field. The event will take a form of a day-long conference and will be open for public.
