Implementing BERA language on Revit Architecture

September 1-November 30, 2011

Checking building design rules can be a tedious task for architects. Postdoctoral research scientist Jin Kook Lee from the Georgia Institute of Technology sought to make this process easier and more intuitive by implementing his domain-specific computer programming language called Building Environment Rule and Analysis (BERA) on Revit Architecture software.

Lee envisioned creating an easy-to-use interface that would enable designers to query Building Information Models and then retrieve and visualize information, such as spatial networks. This video shows the results:

Jin Kook Lee completed his PhD studies in the Design Computing Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology College of Architecture in December 2010. He spent the following year as a postdoctoral research scientist in the school’s Digital Building Laboratory, led by his advisor Professor Charles M. Eastman. Lee recently joined Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea, as a professor and is teaching BIM and design computing courses using AutoCAD, 3ds Max, and Revit Architecture software.
