ISAIA 2018



The International Symposium on Architectural Interchanges in Asia (ISAIA) is a biennial international symposium cosponsored by the Architectural Institute of Korea (AIK) together with the Architectural Society of China (ASC) and the Architectural Institute of Japan (AIJ).

The 12th ISAIA is scheduled to be held on October 23∼26, 2018 in Pyeongchang, Korea and hosted by AIK. The organizing committee of ISAIA welcomes professors, architects, building engineers, researchers and students to take part in the symposium and contribute papers.

THEME: Confluence of Architecture in the Age of Super Connectivity

Confluence is a situation in which two things join or come together. It can connect people, things, fields of study, time, and ideas in the age of super connectivity. Nothing great can be accomplished without collaborations, just as great rivers are the results from the merge of numerous small streams. Not only science and technology, but humanities and cultures are being fused in recent architectural space. Sharing knowledge, space, and even cars is becoming the creative commons for all. It is time to discuss and share new ideas crossing over various fields from the perspective of confluence in architecture.
