Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to postpone the AAG 2020 Conference. The conference will be hold on April 28th and April 29th. The workshop will be hold before the conference, on April 26th and April 27th. Registration is possible through this link: https://www.azur-colloque.fr/DR01/inscription/inscription/124

Given the current circumstances, the organizing committee has decided to convert AAG2020 into a hybrid event, with the additional possibility to attend the online conference if it is not possible to come to Paris. This will hopefully give everyone the opportunity to take part in the event, either physically or virtually. The online conference will allow to watch presentations and to ask questions through an instant message service like Slack, to the presenter.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we unfortunately have to postpone the AAG 2020 Conference. We are presently working on the new calendar and we will provide soon an official date. It will be held early 2021 to give a chance to most of us to attend.

For the time being, we have plenty of promising abstracts and workshop proposals and we want to thank all the persons who have already submitted their proposal. The schedule being less tight, we would like to inform you that the deadlines are slightly moved and that there is still time for submitting an abstract and preparing the paper :

Deadline for submitting an abstract: 10 April 2020.
Deadline for workshop proposals: 10 April 2020.
Deadline for submitting a paper: 14 May 2020.

Stiff and Flexible Sandwich Panel

Discover our keynote speakers: Tomohiro Tachi.

Tomohiro Tachi is an associate professor in graphic and computer sciences at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the University of Tokyo.


He studied architecture and received his Masters and Ph.D. degrees in engineering from the University of Tokyo. He has been designing origami since 2002 and exploring spatial, kinematic, and structural origami through computation.

Tachi developed several software tools for origami design. “Origamizer” (2008) generates the crease pattern on a sheet of paper that folds to a given three-dimensional polyhedral mesh. “Freeform Origami” (2010) is an interactive design system, in which users can explore the design space of rigidly foldable origami, i.e., a deployable system composed of rigid panels and hinges.

These computational origami tools are available from his website. Tachi is also active in creating novel structural systems and cellular materials that exhibit peculiar flexibility and stiffness through geometry and graphics.

AAG2020

Geometry lies at the core of the architectural design process. It is omnipresent, from the initial form-finding stages, to novel manufacturing techniques, to the construction, and to post occupancy monitoring. But the role of geometry in architecture and engineering is also continuously evolving. Geometry increasingly plays a role in modeling environments and processing sensing information. Modern geometric computing provides a variety of tools for the efficient design, analysis, and manufacturing of complex shapes. Besides descriptive geometry controlling form algorithmic processes play a crucial rule in integrating disciplinary input. On the one hand this opens up new horizons for architecture. On the other hand, the architectural context also poses new problems to geometry. Around these problems the research area of architectural geometry has emerged. It is located at the common border of architecture with applied geometry, computational design, mathematics, and manufacturing.

Advances in Architectural Geometry (AAG) is a conference where both theoretical and practical work linked to new geometrical developments is presented. It involves architects, engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, software and algorithms designers and contractors. We aim at connecting researchers from architectural and engineering practices, academia and industry. AAG has become a reference both in research and in practice and is supported by the direct participation of the most renowned architectural design and engineering offices along with research laboratories.

The symposium is a biennial event. It was held first in 2008 and 2010 in Vienna, 2012 in Paris, 2014 in London, 2016 in Zurich and 2018 in Gothenburg.
