Facades+ This Month!!!

The Facades+ PERFORMANCE conference is just around the corner.  Join me and other great speakers and instructors in Chicago on October 24-25 for some fantastic presentations, discussions and workshops!

I will be moderating the Innovation panel discussion on October 24. We will discuss how new information-based technologies are informing the contemporary discourse on building and facade performance.

The Innovation Panelists will be...
  • Franklin Lancaster (Eckersley O’Callaghan) 
  • Matt Herman (Buro Happold) 
  • Jonatan Schumacher (Thornton Tomasetti)
On October 25th, I going to be giving a Facades+ Tech Workshop:

Parametric BIM: Facade Design Using Dynamo for Autodesk Revit

Dynamo is an open source graphical programming language for Autodesk Revit and Vasari. Dynamo can be used to customize a wide variety of computational design processes within Revit’s Building Information Modeling environment. This workshop will explore how Dynamo can be used as a took for studying parametric facades. Participants will learn how to use Dynamo for generating facade geometry, deploying Revit families, utilizing analysis information, and managing complex parameters.
