2011 Conference: Architecture
Tuesday 1st February 2011
Digital modeling – in all its forms
What BIM could and should be – and what it will be in the future
The requirements of specific IT tools are constantly changing - from initial sketches to architectural designs, construction plans, operations and maintenance via every possible kind of simulation – and have now spread to all areas of architecture and construction. While many different solutions are offered alongside a variety of models, compatibility is far less common.
Whether energy-related or environmental, the range of challenges that we must now respond to requires us to acknowledge the entire life cycle of a building and its integration into a town or city.
In 2010, imagina tackled this issue by looking at sustainable construction and the role of simulation in 'Green Building'.
Over the course of imagina 2011, we are widening the scope of our study, taking all forms and dimensions of a mock-up into account and, at the same time, being clearer in analysing examples of mock-ups alongside their practical uses.
Digital mock-ups are a, if not the definitive, response to these issues. They facilitate interaction between different parts of the building trade and knowledge management, bringing together each person involved in the construction process (architects, project managers, contractors, consultancy groups, engineering and services companies and residents).
Based on the premise that a straightforward, ‘static’ model is almost useless, attendees and exhibitors will come and share their best strategies for using mock-ups. Which abstraction layers do they use, and which methods of format interpretation and data exchange? What are their limitations and how do they help? What do they aspire to – a new architectural philosopher’s stone?
With the opportunity to follow the development of an ideal project, come and discover the latest practices and methodologies to use.
With a variety of talks on offer, come and share your knowledge or your own experiences.
