An increase of the world population to up to 10 billion people by 2050, coupled with a current continued economic growth, digitalisation, and infrastructural expansions in many countries require us to reconsider the global carbon impact.

The consequences of the fourth industrial revolution and resulting climate changes can be directly and physically experienced as phenomena around the globe and by many of us; as coastal and river floods, cyclones, bushfires, air pollution, a decline of resources, and diminished natural habitats.

In this context, computational design, simulation, analysis, fabrication, and management allow us to evaluate, understand and forecast trends and consequences of connected impacts across multiple disciplines. In a post-carbon framework, computation can be applied for improving the quality, sustainability, and resilience of the architecture, infrastructures and public resources of the built environment.

Consequently, the conference theme ‘Post Carbon’ seeks profoundly different approaches to identify closer dialogues, better collaboration, increased agency and effective ways to address a world in which climate change has become a reality. We specifically call for papers that address the UN Sustainable Development Goals as we are forced to live with extreme climate, live with limited resources and live with reduced biodiversity.

The 2022 annual conference for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA), will bring together academics, researchers, and practitioners involved in contributing to applying computational design methods, tools, and processes towards achieving a post carbon future of the architecture, engineering and urban design sector.
