There are many examples of BIM Buildings. There are incredible constructions. One of the pleasures of my life is to read about and consider what the more advanced cultures around the world are building. Not only are they monuments to man’s ingenuity, but they are also testing grounds for new technology – technology that is of vital importance, as 60% of the world’s energy is used in buildings. It is critically important that as much design prowess input into the design of these buildings (systems).
One of my students, who specializes in lighting design, alerted me to the Edge, which he referenced as a great example of a bleeding-edge example of a BIM building. I decided to do some investigation and got the download of the following article from a website of the University of Cambridge:
Another of my favorite designers was Zaha Hadid. I was privileged enough to listen to her on the BBC’s Desert Island Discs shortly before her death.
Her creations are truly incredible pieces of art, yet they serve as great examples of BIM.
There is the Super Slender Towers in New York.
There is the Phoenix Media Centre in China. A masterpiece of manufacturing prowess.
And do not forget the Autodesk headquarters in Toronto, where Autodesk used its own headquarters as a proving ground for machine learning design. (Dynamo and Refinery is).
If you need help adopting BIM standards and software like Revit to manage the process, please contact Micrographics so we may be of further assistance. In the interim, please discover all the wonderful creations our contemporaries overseas are coming up with.
