Project Text

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is not just a tool for project delivery and production. This research project seeks to identify new relationships between design processes and BIM that leverage the computational resources for design objectives. The project outlines two approaches to breaking the constraints of BIM with more intuitive work-flows for design. These include associative modules and conceptual massing with adaptive components. The work here highlights an exhibition created for the 2015 NY Architecture League Prize for Young Architects.
