In order to give insights into the role of technology and innovation in the practice and critical theory of contemporary architecture, we initiate Symposium, which is planned to be organized annually from this very first one onwards. The Symposium aims to provide scholars a transdisciplinary platform where theoretical, technical and/or practice-based state-of-the-art research findings revolving around a yearly theme in the larger framework of ATI can be discussed reciprocally. 

Smart cities today, are considered as ecosystems of various networks designed to make the urban environment more intelligent; and smart buildings are one of the most indispensable components of this ecosystem. By bringing together scholars from diverse disciplines all those who focus on the effects of unfolding intelligent systems of built environment, the Symposium is aimed to initiate a scholarly informed basis for the discussion of the opportunities, requirements and sustainability of this ecosystem with its present and potential future forms as well as its undercurrents.
