The event runs 19-21 Feb and is co-curated by the MAD Collective, :scale & ARCHLOGBOOK
In the first of its kind, the Millennial Architecture and Design (MAD) Collective is hosting a free, weekend long, online MADCon Virtual Convention aimed at the Architectural student community.
With 24 sessions over 3 days, the aim is to provide advice, resources and presentations from a global range of creators.
Talk topics are diverse, from in depth CAD help to talks on education and life within a practice. CAD-wise, the weapon of choice seems to be Rhino, with a number of hints and tips sessions looking at integration between Rhino and Revit and 3D massing in Rhino.
For those of you interested in Rhino, AEC Magazine’s interview with Bob McNeel and Scott Davidson on the superb new release is well worth a read.
From the prospectus we found: Holistic design thinking, How Architectural education is changing, Alternative careers in architecture, YouTube tutorials, Building LinkedIn profiles, Creating a personal brand, RIBA Future Architects and plenty of sessions providing advice on navigating the profession. The speaker list and biographies for the three-day event can be found here.
All the sessions of MADCon Virtual Convention will be archived after being broadcast live. There are also Zoom hangouts for networking and mixing between sessions.
The MADCon Virtual Convention is co-curated by members of the MAD Collective, Sana Tabassum (:scale archi-community) and Gabriel Chek (archlogbook). Those looking to take part in the community event can see the full agenda and sign up for free here.
