Description

Description

With the integration of hand sketching into the digital workflow, we are no longer bound to the finite limitations of our tools. Step through an integrated design process, utilizing laptops and iPads in conjunction with SketchBook Pro software, FormIt software, Fusion 360 software, Revit software, and Dynamo visual programming language extension. In this course, learn how to integrate and capitalize on the power of design sketching in fluid conjunction with the Building Information Modeling (BIM) model. Learn how to utilize SketchBook Pro in the IOS/iPad to create initial sketch concept(s) and import into FormIt software as background for underlay and development of design into a 3D massing model. Develop the massing model utilizing cloud-based FormIt software in conjunction with further overlays and sketching in SketchBook Pro on a pen/tablet interface. Utilize FormIt conceptual energy modeling to orient and refine the initial design concept. Using Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform and Revit Model software within the massing environment, models and concepts are shared with the Production Team and distributed to the contractor/owner teams.

Mike Engel

Mike Engel, associate AIA, is a designer with Elness Swenson Graham Architects, Inc., in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with a particular focus on formulating and developing integration between the Design and Production Teams. His previous work at Johnson Braund, Inc., (JBDG) in Seattle, Washington, was to lead the firm-wide adoption of a Revit software workflow. Prior to JBDG, he studied and worked at Place Architecture LLC in Bozeman, Montana, where he received his master’s of architecture degree from Montana State University. He has a passion for integrating designers’ conceptual hand sketches and artwork into modern technological tools. He recently presented an integrated workflow as part of the Innovation Forum at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2015 convention in Atlanta. In his downtime he enjoys taking his children for bike rides, walking in the park, and going to “sketchouts” where he (and his children) continue to sketch ideas within the world around.
