I. Theme
Digital culture: in the past 20 years, with the rapid development of digital technologies, humanity has ushered in an unprecedented new digital era. The influx of digital tools into the society has changed the way people live, and what followed are the great changes of people's consciousness including cultural attitudes. The development of digital technologies has a strong impact on the architectural culture, provides new solutions for the form, performance, construction and other aspects of architecture, and further expands the extension of architectural culture. At the same time, the digital design, taking relevant software and hardware as tools, and using algorithm and logic as the language, gradually forms a unique digital architectural culture.
The theme of this conference is "Digital Culture". Domestic and foreign experts, scholars and industrial practitioners are welcome to come to discuss the development and transformation that digital culture brings to the paradigm of architectural design, as well as the opportunities and challenges that digital culture brings to architectural education and industry.
