Event description

Description

This workshop provides high-level concepts on how to visually script in Revit using Dynamo, it focuses on environmental design processes and concepts used to evaluate important concepts of sun orientation, building openings as well as shading devices. This design focused workshop will target basic parametric knowledge which is needed to connect the out-of-the-box tools and data generated from the tools with designed building components. It also provides insights on how to use computational design during sun studies to enrich BIM workflows. It provides participants with an understanding of how to approach BIM as an environmental design platform to assess building envelops. The workshop will open doors to experts in environmental design to enrich their explorations in sun related studies within Revit environment. Topics such as SEPP 65 code and vertical and horizontal shading devices will be discussed from a parametric design perspective. The workshop will kick off your explorations on data driven design and analysis through creating environmentally smart building components.

This workshop is part of the Sustainable Built Environment 2016 - International High-Performance Built Environments Conference in Sydney. It is only opened to conference registered delegates and UNSW students and staff.

The workshop is organised by Suleiman Alhadidi, BVN + UNSW

SULEIMAN is an architect, researcher and engineer. He is an adjunct senior lecturer at UNSW where he is researching in the integration of new technologies in architecture design to advance building performance and the new role of architects in the data era. At BVN architecture, Suleiman is currently working on developing the research agenda in robotics, sensing and smart buildings. He is an expert in the area of Computational Design and Building Information Modelling. Suleiman is a registered architect in Australia and Jordan.

Prior to BVN. Suleiman established and led the computational design team at HASSELL. He also worked with architecture practices in Europe and the Middle East such as Coop Himmelblau and Laceco international. He taught and researched extensively at leading Australian institutes such as the Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory, University of Melbourne and RMIT University. In 2008, he founded Mutation Studio, a studio dedicated to urban design experiments and computation. In 2013 he co-founded O(n) Studio, a research-based studio which explores the use of new technology in architecture design, design workflows and computational design strategies.

His work has been awarded, exhibited and published in Australia, Italy, Portugal, France, Jordan, China, Hong Kong, Korea and the UK. His current research interests include architecture design strategies, robotics in design, digital architecture, BIM technologies, and deployable complex kit-of-parts, interactive built environment, and fabrication technologies.

Organiser @SBE16Sydney

Organiser of Workflows for Computational Environmental Design – Revit & Dynamo

SBE16 Sydney is part of the Sustainable Built Environment (SBE) Conference 2016 Series focused on developing High-Performance Built Environments. The SBE conference series has grown into an important and significant global event with the aim to bring research and industry together to share research innovation and to provide excellent opportunities for international exposure. As part of the pre-eminent international conference series, SBE16 Sydney is aimed at driving innovation in design, planning and management of high-performance built environments, as well as promoting education and collaboration in the field. The conference is organised by the Faculty of Built Environment, UNSW Australia, and Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Low Carbon Living, Australia.

High-Performance Built Environments aim to reduce the environmental impact of built environments, to improve public health, and to create more resilient buildings and cities. High-Performance Built Environments are concerned not only with building design and urban planning, but also tackle challenges relating to health, comfort and well-being of people in buildings and cities.

The conference is a full-paper peer-reviewed international conference and accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings which will be published in Elsevier's Procedia Engineering Journal.
