CALL:

Today the digital is ubiquitous across all disciplines interacting with the life in cities: urban history, architecture, planning, art, design, media, communications, and more. Examples abound.

In film and animation, digital models create fictitious places on scales unimagined. Installation artists make space interactive through digitising motion, sound and heat. Projection mapping allows artists to reinterpret the past in-situ. Photographers use digital cameras to document city stories. Marketing, technology and communication mediates the city experience 24/7.

As the Western world comes to an ever deeper understanding of its heritage in the 21st Century, technology is ever more present in our reading of the past. Data mapping is standard in conservation and social history. Archaeologists use digital tools in geophysics, laser scanning, and compositional analysis. Landscape and architectural visualizations populate museums across the world. In architecture, computational design uses algorithms to replicate biology. Coding produces self-generated architectural form. Information modeling presents planners with interactive design in real time. The city is seen as ‘smart’. 

This event welcomes delegates from around the world in various disciplines:

Architecture, urban design, history, archeology, heritage, conservation, art and design, digital studies, film, photography, cultural studies, sociology, humanities
