Torsten Wang and Ulrich Pohl 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.
Torsten Wang and Ulrich Pohl
Torsten Wang- Educated as both cabinetmaker and Architect - has been working for 3xn from 2005 – 2007, and since 2008. He has been working with
complex 3D design and geometry, from the early sketch to the realization on site.
Ulrich Pohl is educated both cabinet maker and architect. He has worked for 3XN since 2008. After graduating from Technische Universität in
Braunschweig, Germany he started working in Berlin at realities:united dedicating his focus to new media and information technology were he, among
other projects, worked on the development of the media facade for EACC in Spain in collaboration with Nieto&Sobejano Architects.
At 3XN he has been engaged with various types of assignments and involved in many of the studio’s major corporate and cultural projects. He has
been working on The Blue Planet, Denmark’s new National Aquarium, beginning from competition up to now. He was responsible for its geometrical
optimization and part of the façade design team that challenged the realization of the complex double curved exterior skin. A huge part of his work
included implementation and feedback of 3D data into various applications.
