Lunch9 - Tools Moving Designers Toward a New Architecture

27 May 2020 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


1.5 ConEd Learning Hours

The practice of architecture is evolving as powerful new tools emerge that allow the architect to more quickly move an idea from its conception into a medium where it can be shared and experienced by clients and other team members. Integrating algorithmic design with Building Information Modelling (BIM) enables projects to be more easily created and modified. New presentation techniques allow the communication of ideas to occur in interactive and immersive ways. These tools are moving the architect towards a new architecture that is more creative, more collaborative, more empowering, and more profitable.

This Lunch and Learn highlights the opportunities created when algorithmic design is integrated with BIM and explores the various options available for visualizing projects. Attendees will learn how to create 3D illustrations that explain conceptual ideas in seconds, be introduced to an interactive app that enables designers and their clients to walk through a space before ground is broken, experience immersive presentations that can showcase conceptual projects with unparalleled detail, and discover the easiest way to offer clients a virtual reality experience.
