A Placemaking Approach to Design: 1 AIA LU HSW

The days of designing for a discrete project are numbered. Today's most forward-thinking architects are finding it their mission to go beyond their project — in terms of both space and time — to consider, and even encourage, land-use patterns in the surrounding area, and to anticipate, and even influence, future events and unexpected consequences. This Architectural Record webinar will illustrate the practices of land-use planning, placemaking, and intelligent urbanism and how implementing these practices can have a positive effect on individuals and surrounding communities throughout the life cycle of a project.

Universal Design — Going Beyond Standards with BIM Technology: 1 AIA LU HSW

In order to achieve the goals of universal design, design professionals need to look carefully at both overall layout and design details from multiple standpoints. Many are discovering that the type of visualization and information that Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology can provide is invaluable. This Architect Magazine article explores how a number of architects are using BIM to successfully create appealing and functional buildings that achieve universal design.

The Why and How of BIM Implementation: 1 AIA LU

Building Information Modeling continues to become the industry standard, with many projects now requiring the delivery of BIM files. However, considering the implications of a BIM workflow only after starting said projects can lead to serious issues, which is why this presentation will expand upon the planning processes needed to adopt BIM in your firm. Attendees will also examine what a successful BIM transition looks like in practice through example case studies, exploring both why and how firms are already growing their businesses with BIM.
