In the contemporary AEC industry, it is as crucial to be able to quickly conceptualize and visualize a design as it is to document and, ultimately, materialize it rapidly and reliably. This class covers the use of specialized tools and methods for conceptual early stages modeling and their integration into a BIM environment (Revit® Structure software) that enables reliable material assignment, quantification, and documentation.
- Describe the usefulness of interoperability protocols
- Draw on strengths from multiple modeling platforms
- Describe practice-based examples of conceptual design combined with detailed documentation
- Use Revit add-ins
Gustav Fagerström is a registered architect and associate with BuroHappold Engineering New York where he leads the structural Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Advanced Modeling Team. Specializing in design computation, he operates at the intersection of architecture, engineering, and computer science. He has experience in all stages of projects in over 10 different countries, having practiced architecture with Urban Future Organization, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, and UNStudio. Work of his has been exhibited and published in Europe, the Americas, and Asia, and presented at Autodesk University, the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research (CAADRIA) conference, the ACADIA conference, the FABRICATE conference, and the SmartGeometry conference. Frequently engaging with academia, he has sat on design juries, and given workshops and lectures at University of Pennsylvania, Yale University, the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, UCL Bartlett, the Royal Institute of Technology, and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm.
