Today’s building industry is increasingly complex and specialized. Modern projects are highly driven by intensive collaboration between architects, structural engineers and other stakeholders. Especially in the digital era, architects and engineers are separated from the building site. Hence, digital models are required to ensure a three-dimensional understanding of the scope of work. The challenge is, the architectural model and the structural model are not exactly the same.
This workshop will give you an intro into parametric structural design using the connection between the powerful analysis software SOFiSTiK and the nearly endless parametric possibilities of the Rhino/Grasshopper world. An emphasis is on exploring methods of collaboration between architects and structural engineers. It is led by structural engineer and software developer Andrés von Breymann and Andreas Niggl from SOFiSTiK AG, along with BIM specialist Junghwo Park from Umdasch Group Ventures.
Participants will probably be structural engineers having basic experience with Grasshopper, but others of course also welcomed. You will expect to learn and achieve the following goals after the workshop:
