Description
Acabion stands for evolution, innovation, sustainability, research and humanity. Acabion Architecture focuses on highly performative design inspired by nature, technology and the basics of living. We are looking at design proposals which do not impose but value our basic human desires now and in future., we think evolutionary and not revolutionary. Therefore we are looking at contributions using software packages that take into account issues such as environmental powers, swarm intelligence, parametrics beauty and culture specific wisdom. We welcome all contributions subscribing to those parameters.
