Frederik Agdrup 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

Symposium Agenda:
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.

Frederik Agdrup
Frederik Agdrup is partner and founder of was founded in Copenhagen in 2008 as an alternative to the conventional design studio.
We combine architectural practice and digital production facilities under one roof in the making the homes of the future. The building system is a semi modular and additive component based structural envelope, with embedded digital building information. We describe our work as New Nordic homes – the future of sustainable living. Our design embraces the ordinary complexities within the everyday life with an interest for the coherence between technology, environment and architecture
Our studio originates from the vision of an architectural practice where digital and analogue world coincide – without a distinction between the architect and the builder. By reuniting manual labour and creative thinking, we utilize cutting edge technology in the end creating a creative building process. During the summer of 2011 an international collaboration between and Facit Homes resulted in the completion of the first digitally fabricated home in Denmark. This endeavour was the result of years of correspondence and exchange of knowledge which puts in a unique situation. A situation, that points in the direction of a shift in the construction industry as well as common architectural practice.
