SCI-Arc Presents "Advances in Architectural Geometry 2012" Film

SCI-Arc is pleased to announce its participation in the Advances in Architectural Geometry (AAG) symposium hosted September 27-30 at the Centre Pompidou, Paris.

The unprecedented event introduces theoretical works and practices linked to new geometrical development applicable to architecture. AAG has become a reference in the professional field and is supported by the direct participation of some of the most renowned architectural design and engineering offices, along with academic laboratories.

SCI-Arc was invited, along with 14 other international schools of architecture to submit a video presentation dedicated to SCI-Arc’s most recent discourse on developments in architectural geometry and computation. This presentation will be shown at the Centre Pompidou in Paris and allow a large public to discover some of the most provocative and design challenging experiments currently being carried out at SCI-Arc.
