Symposium on Computation for Sustainable Architecture and Urbanism
The aim of the first symposium on computation for sustainable architecture and urbanism is to discuss information-based approaches that augment design processes and decisions towards sustainable buildings and cities. To increase the impact it is important to develop methods and strategies that go beyond mere imagery, to identify fields where information technologies can contribute towards a more sustainable building stock.
