About ACADIA 2019
The theme of ACADIA 2019 Austin is Ubiquity & Autonomy. We find ourselves at a moment where there is no longer a divide between analog and digital processes; the digital world is ubiquitous, inescapable. On the other hand, the discourse of architecture is drifting toward theories and practices of a more autonomous nature, practices that in many ways reject connectivity in favor of separation and articulation. Furthermore, these issues have taken root in our disciplines renewed interest in aesthetics, representation, fabrication, theory, and as a pedagogical approach to design. The very nature of how technology is being used has been called into question. For ACADIA 2019 Austin we hope to debate the merits of these varied approaches.
