Envisioning Architecture: Space/Time/Meaning
The 13th European Architectural Envisioning Conference

The Glasgow School of Art hosts the 13th European Architectural Envisioning Conference – EAEA13. The Conference will take place 6 - 8 September 2017 in the Reid Building, with architectural tours on 9 September.

The conference is organised by Mackintosh School of Architecture (MSA) and the School of Simulation and Visualisation (SimVis), reflecting the intention that the conference should deal equally with all ways of envisioning architecture – from hand-drawn to digital methods.

Three themes are proposed: Space, Time and Meaning. These are intended to encourage - rather than constrain - contributions to the event and we particularly wish to have the broadest possible input to the debate. SPACE is clear enough - we have to understand the quality of the environment; TIME is equally important - how does our view of the environment change as time passes. And, perhaps most importantly- what MEANING do we embed in the images we generate.

Emphasis is on the widest possible ways in which we communicate the three-dimensional representations of our past, present and future built environments; indeed we wish to facilitate the discussion of the relationship amongst these modes of representation.
