Advancing Computational Building Design enables forward-thinking architects and engineers to accelerate their adoption of generative, digital design tools across their projects. You'll hear how your peers are leveraging computation and iterative design processes to inform decision making and provide the power to clients to better visualize their future asset and drive collaborative relationships with designers.
Returning in digital format for its 4th year, ACBD is back and will be reuniting the AEC community to yet again provide the actionable insight required to allow computational design to expand and change the face of architecture.
Take advantage of the innovation that's available today to streamline the creation of pioneering projects, save architecture firms time, and offer clients smarter designs.
This year we will be:
Offering you the option to attend our Hackathon designed for designers of all coding and visual tool ability levels. Challenges will focus on sustainability and greener building.
Presenting recent case studies on how computation has been used to improve the quality of design, increase firm efficiency and save costs.
Tackling the problem of gaining buy-in and presenting ROI head on to ensure you gain the funding and support required for computation, both from your firm and from your clients, to make digital practice innovations a reality.
Looking into the relationship and opportunities between construction and computation; automating construction documents, taking advantage of IoT data for design insights, digital fabrication and much more.

"ACBD 2019 was an eye-opening experience that conveyed incredible amounts of valuable and relevant information for people of all scales of work and firm size, in the context of an emerging community of designers and professionals that are passionate about working together to bring about a new paradigm for the AEC industry."
Architectural Associate and Digital Media Manager, Martin Gardner Architecture Firm
"The Advancing Computational Building Design was an insightful event among leaders and front-end advocates seeking to move the industry forward through the sharing of experiences and research in the eventuality of what our market(s) and industry will be adopting by necessity."
Coordinator and Leader - Architectural Building Information, Modeling Discipline and Project Architect, Progressive AE
Given the construction industry's growing demand for design optimization and quicker feedback on each iteration, computation is an inevitable disruptive force in building architecture and engineering. However, challenges around ease of use, perception, workflow integration and speed of execution remain barriers to mass adoption.
Advancing Computational Building Design 2020 is returning in October for its fourth year to explore the best practices in integrating computation into the firm and the design process, sharing tools across the industry and proving its commercial value to gain buy-in.
Attendees will walk away with practical strategies and solutions for establishing and advancing computational design on their projects and in their firms.
