The Conference  “Emerging Technologies  in Architectural Design: Structure,  Construction, Material and  Fabrication”  introduces  state-of-the-art  technologies emerging  from research or industries, from  within and outside architecture,  which are under research  to be  applied in architecture  in the near  future or have recently been used  in architecture and building industry. The   conference aims    at   building   awareness    and    critical appraisal of   these technologies and identifies how they might transform architectural practice and thus the role of the architect.

One of the crucial needs for architecture in the changing world is to respond to the changing requirements of its users and to allow them to experience their architectural ambition in reality through involvement in the architectural design process.  In  addition, energy crisis  and  environmental   issues  is  one of the  major  global problems  that is  highly affected by the way that we  design, construct  and manage our  buildings. Therefore, it is an emergent need to change the traditional ways that are used in the design and construction of buildings. Emerging technologies and technology transition from other industries into architecture can be considered as important mediums in responding to the building user’s ambitions, requirements and environmental crisis.

This conference aims to provide a forum for architects, engineers, designers and researchers to present their new research and share their practical experiences of emerging technologies.  The focus will be on the future potential and challenges of implementing new technologies into architectural design, creative structures, construction processes, materials, and fabrication processes. There will also be a focus on the role of state-of-the-art and emerging technologies to delivering sustainable and environmental-friendly buildings.
