Proving Ground has a very busy fall season ahead. Both Dave Stasiuk and I are hitting the road to several events. We’re excited to talk about architecture, data, computation, comics, sci-fi, and anything geeky!
If you are at any of these events, don’t be shy!
Proving Ground is proud sponsor of this year’s ACADIA conference hosted at the University of Michigan – Taubman College. Dave and I will have a table and be taking in lectures and paper presentations from October 27-29.
I will be co-lecturing with HDR’s Rachel Riopel at the AIA Minnesota convention November 8-11. Our talk will look at a recent ‘knowledge assessment’ approach performed at HDR which involved analyzing over 460 staff members across 25 offices in 5 countries. The study gave us some interesting insights into how a large organization can fine tune their digital practice strategy. We also made some cool dashboards along the way!
Autodesk University is almost upon us! I will be teaching two classes this year. The first course is a strategic discussion with my good friend Matt Goldsberry from HDR. We will be discussing trends in the uses of computational design in mainstream architectural practice. My second talk will be a technical discussion focused on using the Revit API to solve design problems. AU2016 takes place between November 15-16.
- Mainstream Computation—from Specialized Skill Set to Core Capability
- Revit API for Designers—Use Cases for Extending Creativity
