Rethinking Comprehensive Design: Speculative Counterculture
19th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided
Architectural Design Research in Asia

May 14-17, 2014
Kyoto Institute of Technology, Kyoto, Japan

Influenced by Buckminster Fuller´s holistic worldview, the concept of
Comprehensive Design was proliferated by the publication of the Whole
Earth Catalog, an American counterculture publication, by Stewart Brand
in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The catalogue featured innovative
ideas, scientific discoveries, and technological advancements that
demonstrated the interconnectedness of the environment and human
activities. It emphasized the need for cross-disciplinary approaches
towards understanding and nurturing our complex world. This concept also
inspired a generation of computer engineers and programmers to view
technology as a tool for individual empowerment and collective

45 years have passed since then, and now the concept of Comprehensive
Design has evolved from a utopian idea to an actualized design tool. It
not only transformed the way we network seamlessly, linking the physical
with information and solving complex problems via advanced computational
processes, but it also democratized and domesticated technology by
offering an alternative trajectory for more open, creative,
comprehensive, societies. «Rethinking Comprehensive Design»  provides a
cross-disciplinary context for the challenging mainstream culture of
computation and invites researchers and practitioners alike to speculate
and explore the potential of counterculture with an emphasis on four

Complex calculations to explore, discover, optimize, and achieve design
High volume real-time data with ubiquitous social network
Cloud computing to collaborate design processes via open source network
Integration of advanced materialization and fabrication processes

Besides the above specific themes, CAADRIA 2014 also invites submissions
of original research papers and posters on general topics in
computational design research, including but not limited to the
following topics:

Computational design research and education
Computational design analysis
Generative, parametric and evolutionary design
Digital fabrication and construction
Collaborative and collective design
User participation in design
Shape studies
Design cognition
Digital aids to design creativity
New digital design concepts and strategies
Virtual/augmented reality and interactive environments
Virtual architecture and city modeling
Human-computer interaction
Ubiquitous and mobile computing
Practice-based and interdisciplinary computational design research
Theory, philosophy and methodology of computational design research

Young researchers currently involved in postgraduate studies are invited
to submit their work-in-progress research papers to the CAADRIA2014
Postgraduate Student Consortium.
