English abstract:
This is the first volume of the conference proceedings of the 33rd eCAADe conference, held from 16-18 September 2015 at TU Wien, Vienna, Austria. Both volumes together contain the 145 accepted papers that are also available digitally in CuminCAD (Cumulative Index of Computer Aided Architectural Design,
The theme of the 33rd eCAADe conference is Real Time: Seeing architectural design as a time-critical and time-related activity requires new tools, methods and theories that deliver results not only accurately but also timely. As project cycles begin to accelerate, a variety of design decisions need to be taken swiftly and nevertheless accurately. Today's practice needs to explore the solution space through a rapid feedback loop between digital and physical products, used collaboratively and over a distance. To facilitate such a back-and-forth, geometries must be converted to manageable approximations on which intelligent tools can act, providing the designer with feedback and advice. This year's conference seeks to be a platform for research, teaching and practical work conducted in that spirit.
The first volume of the proceedings contains 74 papers grouped under 19 sub-themes. Generally speaking, these are the formal contributions whereas volume 2 contains papers with a more educational or designerly background. This volume is furthermore preceded by keynote contributions summarising the positions of our invited speakers.
