When designing buildings, numerous elements (e.g. building shape, rooms, openings, circulation, construction) must be defined and carefully attuned. Building Information Modeling (BIM) supports this process by providing building elements that can be easily placed and modified. However, due to the large number of elements that make up a building, this process is often time-consuming and inflexible when changes are made to the design. By defining rules that describe how elements should relate to each other (parameterization), models can be generated that automatically adapt to certain parameters (e.g. building height, building width, number of rooms).

Learning objectives

In this course, we examine the possibilities of parameterization of building information models. The used software is Revit with the PlugIn Dynamo. 


No prior technical knowledge is required.

Software (Last Update April 2021)

Minimum Requirement: Revit 2020 with Dynamo 2.0.4
Recommended Requirement: Revit 2021 with Dynamo 2.6.1 or later
