about us


Architectural design with computational tools

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 to take projects from design right through to production.


Smartgeometry Community

The SG community is built on an annual workshops and an international conference. SG is a truly global community with particpants and cluster champions coming together from countries spread across the planet.

As modern design has progressed and the tools and techniques have matured, the Smartgeometry Group has emerged as a forum where the new critical language of digital architecture can be formed.


Smartgeometry Organisation

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.

The magic of smartgeometry lies in its curious mix of community and competition, which conspires to inspire and provoke.The excitement of each Smartgeometry event is the anticipation of the unknown, the creative mix and intensity of ideas. Each year generates heightened expectations which inevitably challenge the current design methodologies.
