“Computation in Architecture: Design, Analysis, Workflow”

Building information modeling by itself will not solve the Architecture-Engineering-Construction industry’s problems. In order for us to keep up with an increasingly digital world, we need to fundamentally change our way of thinking about the design and delivery of projects.

This presentation will focus on the integration of computation throughout the design process. Attendees will be introduced to case studies from the profession and applicable strategies, workflows, and concepts for students to engage and deploy within their studio work. The goal is to provide thought and precedent around applicable modes of working that are used within the industry and that are immediately useful to the students and staff.

Daniel Williamson is a licensed architect and the digital design leader of computation at HDR Inc. in the Minneapolis downtown studio. His role is to provide leadership among project teams to implement and innovate design workflows and strategies with the newest technologies. He aims to advance the design process possibilities, leverage effective data, create workflow efficiencies, and ultimately train teams to deliver robust and quality projects.
