BIM for Design


Event details


Building information modeling (BIM) is commonly considered to be about efficiency—but to what end? Rather than just designing more quickly, design more: design more deeply, design more thoughtfully, design more courageously. This webinar is intended to help architects toward alternative design possibilities, new opportunities beyond just executing designs whose conclusions are already baked in. Instead of “faster, better CAD,” BIM can support design processes where technique and methodology are in the service of better architecture. Through a series of case-study vignettes, BIM is shown to be far more than an improved documentation and sharing environment. The webinar concludes with an outline roadmap for practices transitioning to BIM.

Please note this is a sponsored webinar with Architectural Record.&nbsp:

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the quantitative design opportunities that BIM offers and the value of applying them to the design process.
  • Understand how building design information can be a powerful basis for architectural formal exploration.
  • Identify the applicability of a BIM workflow to climate- and performance-oriented projects.
  • Discuss specific cases demonstrating BIM's applicability to the optimized design of high-performance buildings.
