Description: This session will focus on concepts of parametric modeling and integrating them into the design process through the use of BIM tools. Using software that forces rigor, we will learn from the constraints and leverage Revit to explore design systems. Attendees will use Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010, to create a parametric architectural system with embedded variability. Once the systems has been designed, Revit will be used to create models which will translate into drawings for fabrication.

David Fano established CASE Design in 2008. He previously worked at SHoP Architects, where he was Director of Technology Research. At CASE, David has been responsible for managing the implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) at leading architecture and construction firms. He has also lead and managed industry partnerships with leading service providers and software vendors. David has been an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation where he teaches seminars and workshops focusing on the impact of technology on design processes.

Software/Hardware: If you are a student, a free version of Revit Architecture 2010 can be downloaded from Autodesk’s student community website. If you are a professional, a trial version of Revit Architecture 2010 can be downloaded here. All workshop attendees should bring their own laptop with the workshop software pre-installed.
