Welcome

The International Conference on Structures and Architecture, organised by the International Association of Structures & Architecture, is the world’s leading and largest global conference bridging the gap between Structures and Architecture. The contributions on creative and scientific aspects in the conception and construction of structures, on advanced technologies and on complex architectural and structural applications represent a fine blend of scientific, technical and practical novelties in both fields.

For the first time ICSA, the International Conference on Structures and Architecture is to be held in Aalborg, Denmark. It is a great pleasure for us to invite researchers and practitioners world-wide with a background in architecture and in structural engineering to the 5th ICSA conference. We will do our best to make ICSA2022 an inspiring conference.

You can still join icsa2022!

ICSA2022 gathers research and practical developments on the synergetic potential of architecture and structural engineering in an international, serious, and open environment bringing together researchers, practitioners and students. In addition to traditional academic Research Papers, ICSA2022 bridges research in academia and research in practice with a new experimental submission format entitled Critical Practices which involves submission of physical design prototypes.

The success of ICSA2022 is already granted by the quality and number of abstracts for Research Papers submitted: Over 380 Abstracts already submitted! The Abstract Submission for Research Papers is now closed, but the call for abstracts for Critical Practices is still open. The call for Critical Practices is a new experimental contribution format, intended to bridge research in academia and research in practice by means of physical Prototypes.

a viable urban perspective?

Through the critical framing, 'a viable urban perspective', ICSA2022 stresses the commitment and responsibility of structures and architecture as drivers of a viable urban development that address the pressing global social, economic, and environmental challenges facing us.
