International Conference: Architecture Across Boundaries

Boundaries in architecture become increasingly apparent when working in an international context. Boundaries can mean geographical borders or physical territories but also can refer to social, cultural and professional differences. Architectural practitioners working in an international or global context often find that while the projects are international, regulation and professional practice methods and procedures remain at the national level. The aim of this conference was to bring together practitioners, academics and professional bodies from across China and all over the world to discuss the key issues, challenges/opportunities, surrounding architectural practice in the global context and showcase the innovative and best practice methods architects develop. It was expected to build a platform to share knowledge and foster collaborations in order to develop research links and practice collaborations between professional bodies, academia, and industry. The conference consisted of panel presentations, round table discussions, workshops and keynote speeches of leading practitioners and theorists, and a poster exhibition. Attendees from 15 different countries represented around 30 institutions worldwide.

Conference themes: Trans-national Architecture: Global Practice in the Local Context, Architecture across Cultures: Making, Representation, and Material, Education and Professional Practice across Borders, and Future Cities, Sustainability, Workflows, BIM.

The scientific committee of the conference comprised of academics from 10 different universities in Asia, Europe, and America. All contributions published in the conference proceedings underwent a double-blind peer review in two stages.

Keynote speakers: Keith Griffiths (Chairman and Global Design Principal, Aedas), Rajeev Kathpalia (Vastu Shilpa Consultants), Dr. Charlie Xue (City University of Hong Kong), Prof. Flora Samuel (University of Reading , Vice President for Research, Riba), Alan M Jones (President-Elect of the RIBA), and Binke Lenhardt (Architect, Partner and Cofounder of Crossboundaries)
