Conference Thematic |

The conference follows on from the provocative exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Non Standard Architecture, curated by Frederic Migayrou, which proclaims the full emergence of a legitimate digital praxis in architecture. The architects from the exhibition will articulate the non-standard principles implicit in their research into modes of digital praxis.
