The class will guide attendees to understand the principles and aim of the Conceptual Design and the benefits that Autodesk technology and services can bring. The Conceptual Design approach is represented by an “idea travel” more than a standard process: the class will go through this travel, simulating the design intent search by means the use of Formit and Revit as the technolofy support of the Conceptual Model Authoring BIM use. The digital information models will be then reusable to downstream development and detailing. Attendees will understand the aim and the principles of Conceptual Design and the main techniques for using Autodesk Formit and the Revit masses environment.
I'm an architect based in Rome (Italy), with 15 years of experience in BIM; I started working for Autodesk in 2005 as an Autodesk Authorized Consultant and finally I joint the Company in 2012 as a member of Autodesk Consulting, on the EMEA BIM Transformation Team. I'm experienced on BIM transformation and implementations, Revit guru and enthusiast “in general”.
I put many energies on shaping an architectural oriented set of services, taking advantage of Autodesk applications with the BIM approach adding a bit of "out of the box" thinking. I had the opportunity to develop a framework to approach the Conceptual Design Process, involving a number of Autodesk tools and driving the adoption by means the definition of a set of consistent processes and best practices.
During my spare time I still continue dealing with BIM (I'm an enthusiast, you know), playing basketball, driving my motorbike and strumming my ukulele although not necessarily in this order.
