CONVERGE 2017 Europe


Gaudi’s heritage, rope-less elevators, and inspiring 3D printing applications; experience these and more ground breaking projects at CONVERGE 2017.

Explore industrial applications in which biomimicry and artificial intelligence engineering tools are helping to create sustainable solutions.

Learn more about what the designs of a cathedral, a rope less elevator and a 3D printed front end of a classical pick-up truck have in common, and experience how a clever combination of engineering tools, innovative methods, nature’s evolutionary power, and human creativity will help you get a competitive edge.

With high level keynote speakers from Zaha Hadid, Sagrada Família Foundation, Faraone, Robotikdesign und Architektur, Elise Alfred Wegner Institute, Thyssenkrupp Elevators, Protiq, and TU Dresden and two Master Classes on innovative subjects, such as the 3i-Print project, the CONVERGE 2017 will be filled with valuable content for designers, engineers and architects alike and offer a perfect platform to network, learn and share experience.

Be part of CONVERGE Europe 2017 and explore the intersection of design & technology!
