The Elytra Filament Pavilion constituted one of the architectural center pieces of the World Artificial Intelligence Conference 2018 (WAIC). Located in Shanghai’s prime art district, the West Bund, the pavilion demonstrates how architectural design can unfold from a computational synergy of structural engineering, environmental engineering and production engineering, resulting in unique spatial and aesthetic qualities. The conference is a platform for the world’s most influential AI scientists, entrepreneurs and politicians to engage in high-level dialogues on leading AI technologies and trends in the AI industry.
