summary The second volume of the conference proceedings of the 34rd eCAADe conference, 24.-26. August 2016, at Oulu School of Architecture, University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland contains 76 papers grouped under 13 sub-themes. Both volumes contain altogether 157 accepted papers. The theme of the 34th eCAADe Conference is Complexity & Simplicity. We invited the eCAADe community to address the multifaceted notions of complexity and simplicity, which are encountered in architectural design processes. Approaches discussing the theme from the perspective of computer aided design education; design processes and methods; design tool developments; and novel design applications, as well as real world experiments and case studies were welcomed. What is the role of complexity or simplicity as part of the design process? Does the use of complex design methods offer simplicity to the design process itself? Is it possible to design complexity with simple methods? Does the use of computation in design necessitate complexity or offer means to control it? Recent development in digital technologies and digital design tools enable us to address complex situations in architectural environments, ranging in scale from structures and buildings to urban contexts. We often expect technology to better help us manage the complexity of life, to simplify our daily lives and tasks. However, these developments also raise the question of whether design technologies encourage complexity at the expense of simplicity in both the design process and lived environments. Does computation cause complexity? Or does it enable simplicity? In addition to the accepted papers, the first volume contains Keynote Papers, including keynote speakers contribution concerning the themes of their keynote lectures and the Workshop Contributions, including the papers summarizing the contents of workshops given.
