On February 16 & 17, ShoP will be participating in “Creating the 21st Century Façade: How architects and fabricators are advancing curtain wall design in the digital age”, a 2-day conference which is being held at Pratt’s Manhattan campus. The event features a series of lectures on day 1 and a series of workshops on day 2. The conference’s purpose: to bring leading designers and fabricators together as a means to facilitate discussion as well as examine current work and the role technology plays in terms of making a design aspiration a reality.
SHoP Principal Jonathan Mallie will be leading a lecture on day 1 from 9:45 – 10:15 entitled, “Design and Implementation Through Collaborative Practice.” On day 2, John D. Cerone and Hashim Sulieman of SHoP will be leading a 2-part workshop entitled “Computational Design & 4D Sequencing.” The purpose is to focus on basic parametric-rule based modeling that allows design variations and tests the limits of form. The second session is a step by step 4D construction sequencing model process. The Software that will be used is as follows: Catia/Digital Project, Rhinoceros, Navisworks® Manage, Microsoft project, and Microsoft Excel.
