Using Dynamo & Project Fractal for Building Configuration

Generative design is real. Here's where I saw it being used and why I think it's exciting.

I recently had the distinct pleasure of seeing fantastic generative design work by MT Højgaard (MTH). MTH is one of the largest general contractors in Denmark and has an amazing building information modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction (VDC) program. MTH demonstrated how generative design is being used on a project very important to them – the self-built construction of a parking garage for the new main headquarters.

The Augmented Age of AEC & Smart Cars

A team from Ford conducted an amazing test this past week that speaks to the coming augmented age in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. Using Lidar, a car was able to autonomously drive in complete darkness without headlights. It has been possible to drive in complete darkness using technology like night vision goggles for many years, and autonomous driving is rapidly becoming more feasible. Yet combining both of these in one test entered a new realm because it went beyond the capabilities of a human driver.

Generative Design Solutions for MEP Systems

The AEC industry is at a critical juncture in history. Building information modeling (BIM), cloud computing, and the growing sophistication of our building products have created the perfect environment for a new era. This is "The Era of Connection," a disruptive time when design, construction, and operational processes will be radically changed. At BuildingSP, we're working to leverage these concepts and revolutionize BIM.

Set-Based Approaches to MEP Systems Using Generative Design

The architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry is at an exciting crossroads. I want to describe how lean construction is going to be an integral part of a significant new trend. The use of building information modeling (BIM) is mature. Cloud computing is removing computing barriers in lots of different ways. And there's a slew of burgeoning technology on the horizon that is exciting and innovative. Several principles of lean construction will become very important in the near future and lean practitioners have an exciting opportunity to add value to new AEC processes.
