BIM, Design and Design EducationAIA CES: 1.5 LUs | 1.5 HSW
When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM TUESDAY, JULY 10
Where: At The Center
Speaker: Peggy Deamer, Professor of Architecture, Yale University
Can BIM be understood as a tool that not only allows design outcomes to be more efficient and cost effective but also encourages design exploration and risk taking? This talk looks at how BIM can be understood as a tool that reconfigures the notion of design and in so doing, puts the profession in unchartered territory that it should bravely embrace. It will consider how this change in the notion of design can and should have implications for architectural education.
