The International Conference on Amphibious Architecture, Design and Engineering (ICAADE) 2019 will bring together researchers, practitioners, authorities, students, NGOs, communities, and investors to discuss amphibious construction. Amphibious construction allows otherwise-ordinary structures to temporarily float in-place when flooding occurs.
ICAADE is an international conference held every two years, with the 2015 edition in Bangkok, Thailand followed by 2017 in Waterloo, Canada.
This year's conference will focus on the land-water dichotomy. In amphibious design and resilience practices, it is critical to consider the interplay of natural, technological, and human interactions. With shifting perspectives, this conference reflects on shifting boundaries and water levels.
With the keynote speeches, plenary sessions, poster presentations, and workshops, ICAADE aims to create effective discussion, promote the sharing of ideas, and foster future collaborations.
Keynote speakers include:
Koen Olthuis / Waterstudio.NL
Richard Coutts / Baca Architects, UK
Abstracts for papers and oral presentations are currently being accepted.
Early bird registration is available through July 15.
