This lab will guide attendees to understand the main techniques and methods to prepare complex preconstruction documentation and how to take advantage of the BIM and Manufacturing worlds combined together. The class will drive participants to investigate and test the potential of the interaction between the 2 approaches. The aim is showing how a BIM model could be prepared for construction documentation using Fusion 360 and Revit; a particular focus will be put on complex cladding. The main inspiration is the stunning building designed by Zaha Hadid for the Reinold Messner Museum. This is located in Plan de Corones, Italy, and it is composed of a concrete structure "smoothed" with complex concrete panels cladding. The scope of this class is reproducing a similar building and explaining how architects and engineers can take advantage of Autodesk solutions to approach complex designs and make informed decisions. The model that will be created will be then organised to manage the complex concrete cladding and to finally produce the molds and prepare the elements to be placed on the construction site.
