“Skip Forward to the Future of Design”

Computational Design: NEXT

Introduction:

THE PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE: An online interactive conference with global frontiers. Two-day online conference with live presentations, tutorials, interactive Sessions, live mentorship & panel discussions. A collaborative initiative by ParametricArchitecture (PA) and DesignMorphine (DM). Computational Design: NEXT 12 brings together pioneers and professionals from all industries to meet and discuss new emerging technologies in art, architecture, design, and manufacturing.

Computational Design: NEXT is a joint effort by some of the world’s leading experts in computational design to create an online learning platform that will also serve as a full-fledged online conference. ParametricArchitecture (PA), one of the leading media platforms concentrating on computational design and its different subsets, will host the event, including conversations, dialogues, tutorials, and mentoring to a worldwide audience via thought-provoking and relevant speeches.

Karl-Johan Sørensen

Karl-Johan Sørensen, an architect, computational designer, and co-founder at SAGA Space Architects will be showing different workflows he used in designing for the space, at the Computational Design: NEXT 12 online conference. Karl’s interests lie in exploring digital morphogenesis, with a long-standing devotion to origami geometry. In 2020 this materialized into a foldable analog moon habitat, designed, fabricated, and tested by SAGA Space Architects. Since then, his research in computation has shifted towards optimizing for minimal embodied carbon, focusing on sustainable, as much as structural, performance. This brought Karl-Johan to CITA, where he worked on the Fungar project in 2021-2022 before starting his graduate studies at MIT Architecture.
