La Sociedad Iberoamericana de Gráfica Digital (SIGRADI) agrupa a los arquitectos, urbanistas, diseñadores y artistas vinculados a los nuevos medios y constituye la contraparte de organizaciones similares en Europa (ECAADE), América del Norte (ACADIA), Asia / Oceanía (CAADRIA) y Asia Occidental / África del Norte (ASCAAD). Realiza un Congreso Anual, en el cual se debaten las últimas aplicaciones y posibilidades de las tecnologias gráficas, con la participación de relevantes especialistas internacionales.
The International Journal of Architectural Computing (IJAC) was founded collaboratively by ACADIA, eCAADe, CAADRIA, and SIGraDi providing a valuable international forum for the dissemination of contemporary digital design research. The editorial board is composed of scholars from all four of the founding organizations with each group taking the lead role for one quarterly issue per year. Please see the latest call for papers below.
Thanks to parametric design and digital fabrication it is now possible to massproduce non-standard, highly differentiated products, from shoes and tableware to furniture and now even houses. Variety no longer compromises the efficiency and economy of production. Furthermore, parametric definitions of products’ geometry are made accessible via interactive websites to anyone, who could then design their own, unique versions of the product.
Data structures and network protocols now integrate operations of entire industries, and digital workflows encompass virtually all stages of architectural production. Buildings and the processes they undergo are represented by digital building information models, which are shared across disciplines to generate options and support decisions before they are committed to built form.
