Nathan Miller

AR21287: Mainstream Computation—from Specialized Skill Set to Core Capability

  • Save to my AU Saved

Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn about tactics for creating a community of computational designers in an architecture firm
  • Learn about examples for using computation to communicate value to clients and win work
  • Learn about approaches for creating and sharing tools “at scale” within an organization
  • Learn about real-world applications of computational design in practice

Description

Description

Computational design is the “new black” for design practices, but how can an organization take a specialized skill set and turn it into a core practical capability? Matt Goldsberry and Nathan Miller will present strategies for developing a computational design network in architectural practice that addresses skill-set growth, tool creation, and content management. Using HDR Architecture as a case study, this class will explore tactics for growing this specialized skill set to be a core capability within a design practice. We will discuss computational strategies that have contributed to the ability to win work, create design efficiencies, and improve building performance. This session features Dynamo Studio and Revit.
