Birte Bæk lectures in the frame of the Confluence Symposium - Establishing data flow from Design to Site
Friday 23. November 2012 (11.00 – 17.00)
KADK- Auditorium 6, Danneskiold-Samsøes Allé 53, 1434 Copenhagen
Building Information Modelling came with the promise to create a fluent building process starting in design and reaching out all along to architectural production and use. Looking at research driven developments in both academia and practice the seminar investigates the contemporary state, challenges and future potential that might emerge from an unlimited flow of information. Here it is research that emphasises the role of fabrication and material while practice develops seemingly approaches that engage directly with contractors and building site. The research seminar confluence highlights the emerging tools and processes and discusses directions for further development.
National and international guest lecturers will highlight successful strategies, pitfalls and future challenges through research induced projects that bridge BIM based planning with the digital fabrication in building construction. The seminar crossexamines projects in the full range of scales and aims to establish a platform to share experiences and move the contemporary boundaries of the use of BIM.
The symposium 2 is organised by Martin Tamke and Morten Myrup Jensen and is part of the Institute 4 - BIM symposium series.
