The second upcoming event that I want to announce is Digital Architecture London, organized by Ruairi Glynn. That will take place on Monday, September 21st, at the Building Centre here in London. “Introducing the latest developments in digital design practice,” we read, “the conference will explore new spaces, social interactions, design and fabrication processes, and speculate on architecture’s post-digital futures.”
A related book – Digital Architecture: Passages Through Hinterlands – edited by Glynn and documenting the parallel exhibition, will be released the same day.
The program sounds amazing, and I’m really looking forward to this. The day’s complete list of panelists looks like this: Rachel Armstrong, Tony Dunne, Marcos Cruz, and Rachel Wingfield will be discussing “Digital Architecture & Bio-Technology”; Usman Haque, Matt Webb, Tobi Schneidler, and Stephen Gage will look at “Digital Architecture & Interaction”; Brett Steele, Patrik Schumacher, Marjan Colletti, Alvin Huang, and Daniel Bosia will analyze “Digital Architecture & Form”; and Bob Sheil, Hanif Kara, Charles Walker, and Michael Stacey will discuss “Digital Architecture & Fabrication.” I will be speaking on a panel featuring Alan Penn, Neil Spiller, and Murray Fraser, and our topic will be “Digital Architecture & Space.”

One thought on “Digital Architecture London”
Was there any sort of transcript of the presentations? I'm specifically interested in reading what Murray Fraser had to say, given he doesn't appear to have published much on this subject in the past. Thanks, Byron
