About the conference and workshop





Mission statement

The aim of these workshops and conference is to help to transfer and spread newly appearing design technologies, educational methods and digital modeling supported by information technology in architecture. By organizing a workshop with conference, we would like to close the distance between practice and theory.


Those architects who keep up with the new design demanded by the building industry will not lose ground as conductor of the design process in our information-technology based world.  With this attitude of not staying stranger to the tools available for simulations and early phase models architects keep control. We can get back to command.

The other message of our slogan <Back to command> is, that in the expanding world of IT applications there is a need for a comfortable change of preliminary models by using parameters and scripts. These approaches bring back the feeling of command-oriented systems, however the effectiveness is much higher.

Why CAADence in architecture?

"The cadenza is perhaps one of the most unusual elements of classical music, an indispensable addition to an orchestra-accompanied concerto that, though ubiquitous, can take a wide variety of forms. By definition, a cadenza is a solo that precedes a closing formula, in which the soloist plays a series of personally selected or invented musical phrases, interspersed with previously played themes – in short, a free ground for virtuosic improvisation."

Discretionary funding for participants

Since this event was planned as a regional international meeting, the Balassi Institute have offered their assistance to help university faculties, students and other stakeholders from neighboring countries attend this workshop and conference.
