Parametric Building Information Modeling :: PBIM 19.2
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).
In this seminar we will examine the possibilities of parameterization of building information models. The software used is Revit and PlugIn Dynamo. For students in the project module “Design by Research” this course is obligatory. The knowledge provided through online seminars will be deepened in consultations and documented in several exercises.
No prior technical knowledge is required.
Olaf has a Master of Science in MediaArchitecture from the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, where he works as a lecturer since 2018. In addition, he studies Management [Construction Real Estate Infrastructure] at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.
Sven is a lecturer and researcher in the field of architectural planning support systems. He is interim professor for the chair of computer science in architecture at the Bauhaus-University Weimar and founding partner of DecodingSpaces GbR. He studied applied computer science at TU-Chemnitz and graduated in architecture at the TU-Dresden and BU-Weimar. He completed his PhD in 2016 on the topic of automated spatial layout design from a user-perspective. His main research interests lie in the development of measures for evaluating the built environment and generative methods for supporting the design process. He was and is engaged and coordinating several state-funded research projects and has published a number of articles on generative methods for spatial layout design and spatial analysis.
