BIM Seminar at IAAC - Results
Paul Poinet
June 15th 2020 communityevents

Between the 10th and the 28th of May, I led a 20 hours long BIM Seminar at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) during which the 24 involved participants were asked to deploy Speckle onto their own projects. The students organized themselves into 8 groups of 2-4 persons and worked on setting up a Speckle project that linked different datasets coming from their respective individual design thesis projects developed in the framework of the MAA02 Thesis Project at IAAC.

You can already discover the workshop results that are now all published on the IAAC website. From the conception of a COVID-19 Urban Field Housing to an urban art installation called “El Tornado”, the students have also been experimenting with solar analysis, mycelial networks, growth simulation, floor plan optimization, mesh radiation analysis and even mesh relaxation! This workshop was a really positive experience as it showed the versatility of Speckle, which could be deployed on a large variety of case studies and processes. Of course, some bugs and limitations were encountered from time to time, and we always try our best to report them on the Discourse forum or Github :)

Check out the coolest snapshots below. Congratulations to all the students involved in this course, really awesome work!
