BIM ANALYTICS: August 4th: FREE

25 Jun

BIM isn’t BIM without Information.  For decades, faculty, researchers, and software companies have been developing software tools that are intended predict the performance of a building, for example, energy consumption, day lighting, cost, code compliance, structural analysis, etc. These tools have typically been stand-alone tools that provide a specific analytical capability.  The range and depth of these tools has been astonishing, and yet lamentably many of these tools have not been significantly integrated into the design processes of professionals.  BIM is a promising technology to encourage improved integration of design analysis into the building model.  For the Fourth Annual BIM + Symposium, we will explore the nature of analytical modeling in architecture, engineering, and construction.  We will seek opportunities for a more responsive integration of the evidence/simulation based design decision-making.  We will have speakers who have integrated simulation and BIM in their design process, a forward looking section on BIM parametrics, and informative presentations on interoperability and standards.  More information including a list of speakers and registration information will be available on the web site.  Please reserve your spot soon; BIM CON!FAB filled up last year.

Keep checking back on the website as additional information will be updated there.

USC Architecture Event – August 2nd & 3rd

25 Jun

University of Southern CaliforniaThis year, we have launched five course offerings centered on the theme of Los Angeles as a 21st century model of critical urbanism, creativity, and culture. These courses will explore a set of strategically themed topics, connecting over a dozen of the most forward thinking global practitioners, politicians, and urban theorists today with our own faculty.  One of the two-day sessions is themed around building information modeling (BIM). This is a unique opportunity to interact in a small group (30 maximum attendees) with leaders in the profession, in a session focusing on dialogue and debate.  Please visit the website for further information about this unique event, its distinguished speakers, and registration information.  As only a very limited number of spaces are available, please enroll soon.

Keep checking back on the website as additional information will be updated there.
