Design Imperatives ...The Future is Now

CAAD Futures is a biannual international conference on computational architecture, which was founded in 1985 by the CAAD Futures Foundation with the mission to "advance Computer Aided Architectural Design in the service of those concerned with the quality of the built environment". While many design computing conferences have generally focused on similar agendas, CAAD futures, stands out as a more reflective meeting intending a comprehensive perspective of the field.In line with its mission, conferences have taken place all around the world. Recent conferences were held in Daejeon (2019), Istanbul (2017), Sao Paulo (2015), Shanghai (2013) and Liège (2011). The best papers of each conference are collected in a proceedings volume and published by Springer. CAAD Futures is part of the Cumulative Index of CAAD (CumInCAD) database. The 2021 CAAD Futures Conference will be formally hosted by the University of Southern California and will take place between July 12-18 2021, on both the physical and virtual realm.
