Facades + Performance

This April, I will be giving a workshop as part of the Facades + Performance conference in New York City...

Calibrated Facades
This workshop will investigate Computational Design and BIM-related processes for designing, rationalizing, and documenting complex façade systems using real-world constraints and workflows. Using Grasshopper, participants will design and develop a multivariable parametric façade assembly with considerations for modularity and structural support concepts. The workshop will guide participants through several techniques for rationalizing complex façades into efficient and constructible components using paneling techniques, surface analysis, and data visualization. Following the design and development, the workshop will also introduce participants to new automated workflows for documenting the façade system with Revit BIM.
