Innochain invites you to the international conference Expanding Information Modelling for a New Material age. It will take place in Copenhagen on November 8-9, 2018, at the Danish Architecture Centre in the new Blox building by OMA. Organized in collaboration with the Danish BLOXhub organization, the conference aims to create a forum for transdisciplinary and entrepreneur driven research.
Nov 8-9: INNOCHAIN CONFERENCE: EXPANDING INFORMATION MODELLING FOR A NEW MATERIAL AGE
Information modelling challenges the way we think, design, and build architecture. By creating a shared digital platform it enables the emergence of a new hybrid practice in which separate tools and methodologies of design, analysis, and fabrication can intersect. Current design practice is invested in the prototyping of these new methodologies. Across the building industry and in research we see a concerted push for understanding how this new digital chain can be structured, what are productive exchanges, and how a new sense of feedback can lead to smarter design solutions.
The future of the information model is at stake. Expanding simple BIM with more complex requirements to engage and capitalize on analysis, to steer multi-objective design spaces and to interface and control fabrication necessitates new kinds of representations that can handle data-rich design inquiries, enable collaboration and manage the complex and cyclical nature of feedback.
Nov 7: PRE-CONFERENCE-WORKSHOPS, RECEPTION and MCNEEL NEW DEVELOPMENTS PRESENTATION
We invite all the conference participants to join us the evening before the conference for an informal reception from 16:45 to 18:30 at BLOXhub. The results from the three Pre-Conference workshops will be shared and McNeel will do a presentation of their new software developments for Rhino and Grasshopper (Rhino Inside, Rhino Compute, Sub-D modeling and much more!).
The Innochain Pre-Conference Workshops introduce new tools and practices for the building industry, which have been developed in the Innochain projects. Each workshop addresses a key challenge in our current architectural, engineering and construction practice. The aim is to introduce participants to new tools and provide space for participants to experience and work with the hands-on tools and to trigger a discussion of the Innochain developments in their current and future practices.
