If you've ever designed the zoning of a building, any building, you know that functionality of spaces can be more important than anything. The more standardized operation and maintenance is, the more organized are the set of rules you have to take into consideration. Examples have been given in the past regarding stadiums, airports, and terminal stations. Generative design is the way of translating into computer language that which happens in your mind: a set of conditions that needs to be respected in order for your project to work. A hotel room is one of those distinctively rule-based spaces—there are a group of standardized key factors that govern its exact configuration. Once you determine those rules, you can use them to create the framework for a rapid generative exploration of alternatives, highlight discordances rapidly between brief expectations and the given boundaries, and check and double-check your ideas against operational routines. This class will show you how. This session features Revit Architecture and Dynamo Studio. AIA Approved
- Learn how to translate the design process into a Revit parametric project
- Learn how to deal with design rules via Revit formulas and Dynamo scripting
- See an example of model generation
- Learn how to real-time check your project against a set of standards
Claudio Vittori Antisari is an architect specialized in BIM and computational design, currently working as BIM manager at Citterio-Viel & Partners, a full-BIM leading architectural firm based in Milan, Italy. During his last 7 years of experience, he got the opportunity to move to different BIM roles in different world areas—from BIM researcher to BIM consultant up to BIM manager. This exposure gave him a deep understanding of the BIM process for architectural offices. Nowadays he spends most of his time helping architects to improve efficiency and effectiveness in building design. He participates actively in the BIM national debate, taking part in BIM-related events and conferences, participating in university research groups, and giving his consultancy to governance project.
Interior designer, construction-site animal, writer, and Building Information Modeling (BIM) coordinator, Chiara Rizzarda started using Revit software in 2008. Then life took over. Acting as site surveyor for a leading designer, she worked on projects basking in historical heritage around Europe and the Middle East. After settling down, she opened Revit software again, and Italy seemed ready for BIM. She started working as a BIM coordinator, and currently employs BIM even to make coffee. She went back to living in Milan, Italy, where she was born. Her pronunciation has gotten so confused in her many travels that nobody believes she’s Italian. She’s an Autodesk Certified Instructor, and currently gives lectures and teaches Revit software in northern Italy. Rizzarda holds the position of BIM coordinator at Citterio Viel & Partners, the leading architectural and design firm in Italy, and she was an Autodesk Customer Success Story in 2015.
