Prof. Melendez Moderates Conference on Bio Data

Professor Frank Melendez moderated the conference track “Bio Data / Bio Tectonics for Architectural Design” at the 2020 eCAADe conference, “Anthropologic — Architecture and Fabrication in the Cognitive Age.” This session explored nature as a perpetual inspirational source in design thinking. The paper presentations in this track focused on contextualizing biological existence, behavior, and growth in simulation and potential design solutions that set and train intelligent systems. This work pivots between natural and artificial responsive growing materials and applications in the built environment.

 eCAADe (Education and Research in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe) held its 38th conference virtually with hosting by Technische Universität Berlin.
