The 24th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2019) took place this April at the Faculty of Architecture and Design, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.

Papers were called for in relation to this year's conference theme, 'Informed & Intelligent'. The theme was "driven by the intention to take in aspects of machine intelligence, and a wide range of potential research that engages with the intelligent exploitation of computer-mediated techniques in Architecture."

Supervised by Drs Ning Gu, Chris Brisbin, David Kroll, Matthew Rofe, and Alpana Sivam, UniSA PhD candidates Pan Liao, Victor Calixto, and Sahar Soltani each presented a paper on their projects at CAADRIA 2019:

  • Computationally mapping spatial properties of Chinese historic towns using Space Syntax by Pan Liao, Ning Gu, Chris Brisbin, Matthew Rofe and Sahar Soltani
  • A Computational Approach to Measuring Social Impact of Urban Density through Mixed Methods Using Spatial Analysis by Sahar Soltani, Ning Gu, Jorge Ochoa Paniagua, Alpana Sivam and Tim McGinley
  • A Critical Framework of Smart Cities Development by Victor Calixto, Ning Gu and Gabriela Celani
