Workshop: Algorithmic Design through BIM
June 16, 2016
Algorithmic design and building information modeling tools are being developed to meet specific aspects of these complex workflows, yet they often remain unconnected and provide limited help in the project’s full scope.
GRAPHISOFT has been developing tools that respond to this problem by connecting two of the most established tools in their own fields - Grasshopper in the field of algorithmic design and ARCHICAD in building information modeling.
The goal of the workshop is to introduce GRAPHISOFT’s solution to linking a versatile algorithmic design tool with a powerful BIM solution that forms a new approach to CAAD. Specific aspects of the new methodology will be investigated through workflow examples gathered from reputable international design practices. The session will help build awareness of the existing challenges of today’s contemporary BIM conscious architectural design from the perspective of generative design methodology.
