The term "Design Agency" was the cornerstone term of discourse through out the conference. It would be considered from different angles, including but not limited to: materiality, fabrication, and programming.&nbsp;The conference also considered the impact of external influencers, such as games and art, that have shaped our industry through their usage and invention of tools &ndash; the same tools that made ACADIA &nbsp;possible. Keynote speakers such as Will Wright (Creator of The Sims, SimCity and Spore), Casey Reas (Co-Creator of Processing and Artist) and Zaha Hadid (Zaha Hadid Architects) provided touchstones throughout the conference's weekend.&nbsp;</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/fp/fpzpxiwdjk414w4i.jpg"></p><p><em>[Zaha Hadid's keynote]</em></p><p>The cross-pollination of Architecture with other disciplines has allowed for ACADIA to broaden its scope since its inception in the early 1980s, making the conference more inclusive.

Day Two in reality. Day Three was to be somewhere in-between those. It found us dealing with Temporal and Data Agency. Temporal dealing with time and Data with evaluation.&nbsp;A mixing of the two worlds was at play. We weren&rsquo;t here nor there. Somewhere in a digital version of Alice and Wonderland. Interaction, movement and perception were mixing seamlessly. Our understanding of reality has been expanded through the digital. Our viewing of the world and our society has been exploited.

Materiality and Fabrication were on the forefront of thought and discussion. Ranging from robots making robots, or large robots that then became buildings, to computation executing technical drawings; everything in the built world was up for grabs.&nbsp;</p><p>A jump into our real world gave us a challenge, a glimpse of these introverted ideas and what they could culminate in.

The Acadia Conference of 2014 started off sounding more like a science conference than a forum for cutting edge architectural exploration.&nbsp;Topics such as walls, threshold, corner, access, and sketching were far from the main topics of exploration; instead something else had taken hold.</p><p>Reality, our movements, our ideas, they were formulated and described with symbols, numbers and variables more at home in a calculus class. It presents a new lens to see architecture through, a way to view it from a place where the designer did not feel the burden of immediate complete authorship; but inviting them into a system that already had its own qualities, ones to question and react to, a modern day mathematical rorschach.&nbsp;Architecture has been in flux, moving with extreme haste in multiple directions, from formal discovery, mathematical testing, materials exploration and so forth.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ph/php5ceoz00iopxv6.jpg"></p><p>Acadia 2014 is our chance to engage into one of the bra...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/112032899/get-lectured-ucla-2014-15 Get Lectured: UCLA, 2014-15 Justine Testado 2014-10-24T15:01:00-04:00 >2014-10-24T15:01:36-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/1m/1mmh7g8agfinioyh.jpg" width="514" height="764" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/493828/fall-2014-lectures" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Archinect's Architecture School Lecture Guide for Fall 2014</strong></a></p><p>Say hello to another edition of Archinect's <em>Get Lectured</em>!
