IAAS 2017


Today’s challenges in built environment are immense. They require inter- and transdisciplinary skills. At the INTERFACES between architecture and engineering, new strategies and solutions need to be developed. The same applies to the INTERFACES between science and practice.

The last IASS symposium hosted by the German IASS group was held 1996 in Stuttgart with the focus on conceptual design of structures, including responsible and sustainable engineering and a variety of interdisciplinary aspects. The 2017 IASS symposium in Hamburg follows this holistic tradition.

Prof. Paulo Cruz participated in the event with the communication “Ceramic 3D printing – The future of brick architecture” by Cruz, P.J.S., Knaac, U., Figueiredo, U. and Witte, D.
