The 14th international, interdisciplinary conference “Nexus 2023: Relationships Between Architecture and Mathematics” will take place 12- 15 June 2023 in Torino, Italy, presented by DAD – Department of Architecture and Design of the Politecnico di Torino and Kim Williams Books.
This important meeting is the fourteenth conference in the Nexus series, following those in 1996 (Fucecchio, Florence, Italy), 1998 (Mantua, Italy), 2000 (Ferrara, Italy), 2002 (Óbidos, Portugal), 2004 (Mexico City), 2006 (Genoa, Italy), 2008 (San Diego, USA), 2010 (Porto, Portugal), 2012 (Milan, Italy), 2014 (Ankara, Turkey), 2016 (San Sebastián – Donostia, Spain), 2018 (Pisa, Italy), 2020/2021 (Kaiserlautern, Germany, held online).
The Nexus conferences are dedicated to explorations of the relationships between architecture and mathematics through abroad panorama of topics. Over the years since the Nexus conferences began in 1996, conference participants have presented studies of buildings both large and small, as well as entire cities and neighborhoods, designed by great architects of the past such as Leon Battista Alberti and Andrea Palladio, and by modern masters such as Xenakis, Le Corbusier, Frei Otto and Frank Lloyd Wright, and contemporary architects such as Anna Bofill and Greg Lynn. These works are studied from the viewpoint of mathematical notions: symmetry, descriptive and projective geometry, proportion, statics, grammars, computer science, topology, algebra, fractals, and many more.
