The Pre-Conference Reception
We invite all the conference participants to join us at the evening before the conference for an informal reception from 16:45 to 18:30 at BLOXhub. The venue is Bryghuspladsen 10 – Fæstningens Materialgård – https://goo.gl/maps/YcYswF5SeZw ).
Within the reception results from the three Pre-Conference workshops are shared and McNeel Europe will do a presentation of their new software developments.
The Pre-Conference Reception is supported by McNeel / Rhino
The Pre-Conference Workshops
The Innochain Pre-Conference Workshops introduce participants to new tools and practices for the building industry, which have been developed in the Innochain projects. Each of the workshop addresses a key challenge in our current architectural, engineering and construction practice. The aim is to introduce participants on a conceptual and technical level to new tools and provide sufficient space for participants to experience and work with the tools hands on and to trigger a discussion and positioning of the innochain developments in their current and future practices.
MACHINE LEARNING FOR DESIGN, OPTIMIZATION & SEARCH
Facilitator: Zeynep Aksöz (IOA Vienna)
A quick assessment of all kinds of building performances is a pressing need in early design stages. This workshop examines how archi-tects and designers can use data from their own internal as external sources to negotiate between per-formative design and aesthetic ob-jectives through Machine Learning.
CONNECTING PROJECT & OFFICE SPECIFIC BUILDING MODELS WITH SPECKLE – OPEN SOURCE BIM COLLABORATION
Facilitator: Dimitrie Stefanescu (UCL), Paul Poinet (KADK)
The current proliferation of different design platforms make it difficult to share information easily within the building industry, as current digital design data is fragmented. This workshop puts forward the shared platform SPECKLE, through which different stakeholders can communicate and share information across design stages, thereby paving the way for a more inclusive design process.
VIRTUAL CONSTRUCTION WITH ASSEMBLY INFORMATION MODELING
Facilitator: Ayoub Lharchi (KADK)
While digital tools support architects, engineers and constructors in almost all aspects of design and manufacturing, the planning and design for the assembly of buildings takes only place in late stages of design. This workshop will introduce an approach to represent, simulate, visualize, communicate and optimize assembly processes and data called “Assembly Information Modeling”.
Participants are hence asked to bring their own laptops and projects along in order to test and contextualise the innochain solutions. Participants have as well the possibility to present their own approaches and challenges and discuss in the group ideas for future developments.
An informal social bar at Bloxhub will conclude the day. Herein participants of the workshops, Bloxhub members and guests of the next days’ Innochain conference at Blox, which are already in Copenhagen can join and mingle. Workshop thematics and results will be shown, as well as anyone else has the opportunity to present projects and ideas related to the general topics of the day.
