Dear Members

Computational Design (CD) is a powerful tool when it comes to developing complex geometries and overcoming design challenges that would not be feasible with a manual process. In combination with BIM we can enhance the way we design, develop, manage, coordinate and build our projects.

But how do we combine these technologies?

This process can be challenging. Teams inside architecture firms often disagree on the use of the two methodologies and there can be a large amount of repetitive work when architects overlap what has been done with CD tools, with that done in BIM.

Being able to integrate these technologies can bring the best of two worlds to a project’s development. Taking the right steps and setting up the right methods can make this collaboration very fruitful. Connecting these technologies can also mean connecting teams within an organisation.

In the end, both CD and BIM aim to automate processes, save time and minimize errors while allowing for design freedom. This webinar will explore the best way to merge the two technologies to empower architects, enabling them to design smarter, more efficient and sustainable buildings.
