The UMass Department of Architecture is pleased to host this year's ACSA/AIA Intersections Research Conference organized around the theme of Material Economies.

The 2023 ACSA/AIA Intersections Research Conference seeks to find what roles architects, designers, and researchers can play in the paradigm shifts necessary to practice with radical material responsibility. The conference will take place October 19–21, 2023 at the John W. Olver Design Building. At this in-person conference, attendees will gain an increased awareness of research happening in both academia and design practice. The conference will create opportunities for new partnerships, sources of funding and collaborations. It will be a chance for both established researchers as well as those looking to enhance their research capabilities, with sessions, breakouts, workshops and networking events.
