Architecture is no longer just a product of design and construction but also a vehicle of a social action. Communication and mediation are key to this process. The role of architects has to do more with interdisciplinary teamwork than with authorship.

The first International Conference in Architectural Communication (COCA-17) created by the Master in Architectural Communication (MaCA), seeks to create common spaces between multiple disciplines and social agents. In order to introduce the function of mediation and communication in architecture, the activities of this Conference will focus on forming a network of mutual knowledge exchange among participants, selected projects and invited guests.

COCA-17 is directed at the general public, the academy, the professional sector and public entities interested in the field of communication and new mediating practices.
