ArchAgenda LLC is a research-based architectural and computational design lab, which aims to advance and promote a new agenda of radical innovation for 21st century architecture and design, known as Parametricism.
Our Mission is to proliferate cutting edge innovation in global architecture design and discourse through a unified, fluid and systematic approach; to generate and instrumentalize experimental design research agendas and computationally empowered design with potential to accelerate architecture’s fertile co-evolution with today’s complex society; to form and collaborate with entrepreneurial startups; and to amplify through publication and media communication the movement towards a new framework and agenda for architecture.
ArchAgenda LLC is a Chicago Architecture Biennial Affiliate Program Partner. ”The Chicago Architecture Biennial seeks to convene the world’s leading practitioners, theorists, and commentators in the field of architecture and urbanism to explore, debate, and demonstrate the significance of architecture to contemporary society." chicagoarchitecturebiennial
