Intuitive BIM for Architects - Archicad | March 11, 2021
Description:

 

Dear AIA Members and Friends

Building Information Model (BIM) has been around for 20 years. By now, although most of us are familiar with the benefits of this technology, we too often see BIM implemented as a supplement to traditional 2D drafting, rather than as the basis – typically to meet project submission requirements.

In this workshop, we will introduce an open BIM platform by Graphisoft that is highly intuitive and fully supports the way architects work and collaborate.

Archicad was conceived first and foremost to enable architects to take a project from concept design through to construction administration. Familiar processes such as trace overlays and immersive first-person perspective modeling are supplemented by the latest in BIM, allowing project teams to spend more time designing and less time drafting.

You can use your smartphone, tablet or PC to join. Install the zoom.us application prior to the meeting.

1. Please use your real name for registration so that we can credit 1 LU to you.
2. All attendees should mute their audio during the presentation to avoid signal interference.
3. On this occasion, only the host and panellists will be allowed to speak.
4. You may, however, type questions in the Q&A box at the bottom of your zoom screen.
5. The panellists will review your questions and provide responses, time allowing.
6. The presentation will be recorded.

Learning from Bishop Hill | February 18, 2020
Description:

 

Dear Members,

The Bishop Hill reservoir recently became “the talk of the town” when the underground structure was exposed during demolition and, with all the public attention, it’s very likely that the reservoir will now be conserved in one way or another. In our first webinar of 2021, we would like to explore how we might improve architectural conservation policies in Hong Kong by looking at other cities’ experience.

Shita Lam, who discovered the site in 2017 while doing research for her master’s thesis, will take us through the research she’s done with input from Architect Nicky Wong, founder of Hong Kong Heritage Exploration and Structural Engineer Marc Frost.

Fredo Cheung, Vice-President of the Hong Kong Institute of Architectural Conservationists will explain Hong Kong’s current heritage building grading system. Jennifer Lang, current Director of the MSc (Conservation) program at HKU, will discuss the US heritage conservation system based on her 30 years of experience there.

Professor Puay-peng Ho, Mr. Lee Chi Ming and John Raphael Miminas will join the session to explore possible strategies for further architectural conservation in the territory.

This event is supported by The Hong Kong Institute of Architectural Conservationists (HKICON)  and The Institution of Civil Engineers, Hong Kong Association (ICE HKA).

You can use your smartphone, tablet or PC to join. Install the zoom.us application prior to the meeting.
