Integrating Structural Elements for Innovative Design (Print Course)

Architectural design has grown increasingly complex with the evolution of structural technology. Successful architects embrace and emphasize structural elements to articulate their ideas and define space. However, increasing complexity also presents numerous design, workflow, and communication challenges as well as opportunities for progressive and transformative built environments.

This course will explore how architects can use BIM software to take their ideas from concept to refinement to presentation and implementation while benefiting from seamless workflow, collaboration, and communication. The CEU will also address the various issues associated with modern building practices and structural complexity and present examples of projects that exemplify a structure-based process and mindset.
