Smartgeometry was founded in 2001 as a partnership between Practice, Research and Academia, formed by members of the world's leading architectural and engineering practices and educational institutions.
To the new generations of designers, engineers and architects, mathematics and algorithms are becoming as natural as pen and pencil. Smartgeometry promotes the emergence of this new paradigm in which digital designers and craftsmen, are able to intelligently exploit the combination of digital and physical media taking projects from design right through to production.
The sg community is built on an annual workshops and an international conference. sg is a truly global community with articpants and cluster champions coming together from countries right across the planet.
As the smartgeometry has progressed and the tools and techniques have matured smartgeometry has emerged asa forum where the new critical language of digital architecture can be formed. The magic of smartgeometry lies in its curious mix of community and competition, which conspires to inspire and provoke.
Smartgeometry is run entirely by passionate volunteers who balance their professional careers often competing against each other, with investment of time and energy in the wider community.
