Facade Tectonics Forum Seattle: Digits, Data and Beyond – Integrated Parametric Workflows in Advanced Facade Design and Execution
July 16, 2019 at 8:30 am - 5:00 pm UTC-5
The Facade Tectonics FORUM series is coming to Seattle! This full-day seminar features four sessions focusing on advancements in performance and trends within the facade industry, as well as the facade effect on buildings and urban habitat. The FORUM will take place on Tuesday, July 16 at the University of Washington.
Session Overview – Digits, Data and Beyond: Integrated Parametric Workflows in Advanced Facade Design and Execution
Digital tools and processes are playing a disruptive role in the AEC industry, as they have in many markets. Yet the seamless integration of parametric workflows throughout the building process remains a challenge. Where are the gaps and what can be done to bridge them? Unanswered questions of ownership, responsibility, risk and liability (who owns the data/model, etc.) throttle progress and the promise of data analysis and optimization on the building process. Practice leaders in this session explore the current state of the art of digital workflows, the integration of the facade system in those workflows, what is working and not, where lie the opportunities and threats, and finally, pull out the crystal ball to discuss where it is all heading.
Stéphane Hoffman, Principal / VP, and Maurya McClintock (McClintock Facade Consulting) will join this session. It will begin at 8:45 am.
