Will you be at AIA? Take BIM 360 Design for a Spin

June 18, 2018 Esther Dsouza

Visit the Photoelastic Pavilion at Autodesk's Booth at AIA 2018 in the Javits Center in NYC.

Architects around the world will visit NYC this week for the AIA’s annual conference on architecture and design. The AIA Conference on Architecture 2018 will be the largest one yet, featuring keynotes with the inspiring Sir David Adjaye and Sheela Søgaard, education sessions, film festivals, tours, and more.

Planning on attending? Find us on the Expo floor at Javitz Center, in Booth #1257 from Thursday, June 21 through Friday, June 22. Our product experts will demo BIM 360 Design at our booth — you’ll get to see live and in action how design joins the unified BIM 360 platform. Bring your questions on other products too — but don’t mind us if we sound excited to tell you all about the powerful new workflows and controls for Revit cloud worksharing now available in BIM 360 Design.

Help us fill a blank slate — what’s your vision for #BetterProjectDelivery?

As an architect or designer, you are no stranger to the troubles that plague project teams today. You may use the latest chat integration to import shared data, or play with a data visualizer to optimize available space to fit program requirements. And yet, these latest and greatest tools won’t prevent your team mate from developing a section of the model you didn’t mean to edit or save to the group folder. Whoops — but is this your normal?

With the proliferation of powerful tech comes the need to control, integrate, and centralize project data from start to finish in one location.

But don’t take our word for it. Bring your our thoughts, concerns, frustrations, and ideas for better collaboration, process and data management, and project delivery. Bold and audacious ones especially welcome. Help us imagine a better future for AEC with our live artist Colleen Cox (she once animated Superman). She will transcribe your ideas digitally into an illustration. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll be memorialized as a caricature in the sketch forever!

Catch Phil Bernstein at the (breakfast) party

We are inviting select Autodesk customers to a special breakfast on Friday, June 22nd, to hear from Phil Bernstein, FAIA, Associate Dean and Senior Lecturer at Yale School of Architecture, about the Future of Project Delivery and emerging opportunities for the architect’s value proposition.

You’ll also learn about how Autodesk’s BIM 360 platform is enabling architects to push the boundaries of traditional project delivery models, and supporting a more efficient, collaborative design process. We have a few spots now available — if you are a current Autodesk customer, contact us to get added to the list. We will send you location details. *Limited seats remaining.

We built a piece of our booth — it’s a window to the future of making things.

To find our booth, look for the Photoelastic Pavilion: a celebration of state-of-the-art material design by Autodesk graduate interns to explore how materials respond to forces, and how we might use new materials to visualize and better understand them. This Pavilion, designed with Dynamo with the HowickMaker plugin, was prototyped and built at Autodesk’s BUILD Space in Boston, MA.

The backdrop makes for great headshots — tag us on Instagram @Autodesk if you visit. Use #BetterProjectDelivery if you participate in our live draw.
