ARCHDESIGN '24 / XI. International  Architectural Design Conference will be held in the form of an online event. The conference is coordinated by DAKAM (Eastern Mediterranean Academic Research Center) and will be organized by BILSAS (Science, Art, Sport Productions).


Since 2014, nearly three hundred presentations by scholars from different places of the world has been hosted by DAKAM's ARCHDESIGN Conferences and six proceedings books have been published. 

All abstracts are going to be selected according to double blind reviews and accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings E-Book with an ISBN number that will be given to you in a DVD box during conference registration.

In addition to the proceeding book, participants can apply to DAKAM's International Journal of Architecture and Urban Studies (ISSN 2147-9836) during the registration to be reviewed and evaluated for publishing.


Architecture has renewed itself in terms of structural, aesthetical, and functional aspects that correspond to the needs of every age. The speed of change has never been faster in human history and design has never been more integral to our lives. Architectural design does not only shape our daily lives and responds to the needs anymore, it also plays an important role in economical welfare, psychological well-being, and ecological balance. Recently architecture has been linked to a new agenda of marketing and image building. It is discovering neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence, robotic constructions, biomimetics and Virtual reality. Ecology has become a paramount parameter of all design decisions. The psychological effects of spaces have grown into a decisive element. History of architecture has been reconsidered from critical points of view. Theory and creativity have become more prominent for designers. Contemporary world offers new opportunities and challenges for architecture while new frontiers in architecture are waiting to be discovered. ARCHDESIGN Conference invites scholars and architects to rethink our understanding of design in an interdisciplinary and refreshing way.

We invite you to join us at the event and would like to emphasize that proposals from different parts of the world are welcomed.
