DEZACT is a visionary educational platform and network for the architecture industry founded in 2014. It seeks to bridge the gap between the current architecture education system and the industry, as well as to provide ongoing educational opportunities for architecture professionals to stay ahead of the curve in the rapidly changing landscape of their field.

Over 1000+ students from around the world have already been drawn to DEZACT’s cutting-edge exploration of computational design, digital fabrication, AI, and regenerative design in environmental urbanism. The platform is a hub of inquiry and experimentation, dedicated to delving into the relationship between cities, information, technology, society, and culture through the lens of innovation and design.

DEZACT offers a rich variety of events and publications, including workshops, symposiums, performances, exhibitions, and residencies, that delve into the contemporary city and its negotiation with sociopolitical flux and digital ecologies. With a focus on the intersection of art, architecture, new media, and urban studies, DEZACT is pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the field of computational design in the built environment and positioning itself as a leader in shaping the future of the profession. By exploring the changing modes of conception, production, and consumption of urban space in the post-digital era, DEZACT is positioning itself as a thought leader for a new generation in the field.


DEZACT is dedicated to advancing the integration of computational design in the built environment and exploring its potential to shape a more sustainable, efficient, and human-centric future. Our mission is to bring together a diverse community of artists, architects, computer scientists, material researchers, and technology innovators to engage in interdisciplinary discussions and collaboration. We aim to serve as a multidisciplinary think tank and a hub for knowledge sharing, research, education, and action. Our core belief is in the power of design as a tool for positive change and we strive to promote this belief through our global network of researchers, academicians, and practitioners. Our ultimate goal is to create a better future by reshaping our built environment through technology and design innovation.
