About ICAADE 2019

The third International Conference on Amphibious Architecture, Design and Engineering will be held at the Faculty of Architecture, Warsaw University of Technology in Warsaw, Poland from October 13 to 16, 2019. 

ICAADE aims:

to bring together practitioners, researchers, authorities, students, NGO’s, communities and investors in the exchange of knowledge and practice on amphibious issues. Architecture, design and engineering are the result of long-lasting social, economic and technological progress and pathways. We need multidisciplinary perspectives on shifting the boundaries of water and land by use of architecture, design and engineering. These perspectives can support the identification of open questions, market potentials, acceptance and engagement, and flood risk mitigation and climate change adaptation.
to overcome the land-water-dichotomy by providing space and time for discussions on the various paths of practice, experience and knowledge. A pier for science to policy, to practice, and vice versa will offer opportunities to include business, health, finance, design, insurance, politics, research and engineering. In the procedural amphibious space, it is crucial to integrate natural, technological and human interactions for a more sustainable stewardship. With shifting perspectives, the conference reflects on shifting boundaries and water-levels.
