Combine logic, geometry, math, and Building Information Modeling (BIM) with Dynamo visual programming. We'll use Dynamo to drive a Revit document and interoperate with other applications, data sources, and modeling tools. If you already have some experience with Revit and are looking to expand its capabilities with computation, this workshop is for you. Basic understanding of computer programming and scripting is helpful, but not required. This is a full-day class, including networking opportunities over breakfast, lunch, and drinks. This year we're also introducing a forum at the end of the day that will feature several speakers talking about practical applications of Dynamo to both instruct and inspire. Need a bigger challenge? You may be ready for our "Computational BIM Workshop-Advanced."

In 15 years of experience in architecture, Islay has approached each role from designer, project manager, and Digital Design Manager with a focus on integrating innovative design with the functional and technical requirements specific to each project.Islay has particular expertise in BIM, digital workflows, and resilient design. Working along the Florida coast from 2002 until 2008 provided exposure to new codes and how those impact our need to build focused on the environment. This work continued at an elevated level during Islay's time in southern coastal states, with a primary focus on rebuilding the city's public realm along with hardened structures for public shelter and for emergency response personal operations to FEMA specifications after Hurricane Katrina. Since she joined Gensler in 2011, Islay has worked as the Digital Design Manager building a team of specialists focusing on researching new technologies and how to best integrate them with the design and delivery processes. Leveraging digital tools allows thought and process development around the performance of design, in addition to the design data created, computational processes, and a shift in the future of how architecture is managed.Islay received Masters of Architecture and Community Design from the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL in 2008 and Bachelors of Architectural Engineering from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS, graduating from the Honor's College with the distinctions of Special Honors and Magna Cum Laude in 2001. She is registered as an architect and is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, and has Revit certification with Autodesk. In addition to membership in the American Institute of Architects, the New York City Chapter, and the New York City Revit Users Group, Islay has taught at the New York School of Interior Design.
