Architectural Modeling by Project Phase
Our trainers, Michael Kilkelly, Eric Wing, and Daniel Wood and others will show you how to better collaborate with other disciplines or firms on the same projects. They will also show you industry best practices and workflows to help you do your job better. You will have a chance to practice everything using a project dataset we provide.
Conceptual Design for Architects
Get the broad outlines of function and form of the design faster by using more tools found in the AEC Collection. In this module, you learn how various tools can help you articulate your design ideas faster while saving you time later by reducing rework.
Existing Conditions Modeling for Architects
A full understanding of the existing conditions can help you design a better building. In this course, learn how to take advantage of point clouds for modeling the existing buildings. Also learn how to take advantage of the work done by other project team members like the civil engineer, surveyor, or structural engineer.
Coordination and Work Sharing for Architects
When architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, and civil engineers all collaborate on a building project, they must share information about the design, so that all teams are working with the same assumptions. In this module, you learn better ways to collaborate to be more efficient with BIM.
Building Performance Analysis for Architects
Understanding how your design affects the natural and physical environment can help you improve the design earlier when the cost of changes is lower. From understanding how hard surfaces on the site will cause more runoff to understand how window placement will affect energy use, this module introduces you to the various type of analysis you can do to make your design better.
Communicate Design Intent as an Architect
Helping key stakeholders and the general public clearly understand the project scope can reduce project costs and help you win better work. Storytelling is an essential part of the visualization process, it excites the audience. Develop a process that starts by identifying audiences, the outcome they want to achieve for their visualization and ensure the outcomes are met. In this module, you explore several different options for communicating the design intent to stakeholders. Practice rendering images and creating videos of walkthroughs to better communicate the design.
Computational and Generative Design for Architects
Learn workflows for incorporating computational design into your design process. We start by understanding the concepts of computational design and create a simple script using Dynamo. Next, we look at ways to incorporate design patterns into our workflows. Design patterns are repeatable solutions to common design problems. Finally, we introduce randomness as a design tool by creating a façade design tool.
