Aim of the Conference

There is a need to stimulate the inventive and creative design of architectural structures and to persuade architects and structural engineers to collaborate in this process, exploiting together new concepts, applications and challenges.

The aim of ICSA2019 is to present research and developments on the merging of architecture and structural engineering.

Each paper must explore the relation between Structures and Architecture.

The conference will facilitate the meeting of international participants interested in the recent advances in the art, practice and theory of designing and building infrastructures in which the structural and architectonic values are consciously combined and the contribution of each other is mutually enhanced.
