To conclude ACADIA 2015, we will host a HACKATHON event that will encourage every participant of the conference to open their laptops to code, collaborate, and problem-solve during an exciting one-day event hosted by the DAAP Rapid Prototyping Center and powered by Chaos Group V-Ray, Flux, Proving Ground and VIMtrek.
The event will host a number of computational ecologies “champions” around which we will form teams and explore different workflows. The participants will be invited to join any of the groups or wander around, absorbing the amazing range of critical design approaches of our skilled participants
The hackathon celebrates a culture of making and sharing. While we will give juried prizes to the best outputs at the end of the day, every participant will gain insight from how designers behind key practices and institutions critically engage industry problems.
The event invites all design disciplines to work together under one roof. The event will be free to all ACADIA 2015 ticket holders and may also be purchased separately for those unable to attend the ACADIA 2015 conference.
