"Confluence" - A design symposium, November 23th 2012 - Copenhagen

Please be invited to the research symposium Confluence - Establishing data flow from Design to Site taking place Friday 23. November 2012 from 11.00 – 17.00 in Copenhagen. The symposium is free of admission and held in English language as part of a series of symposia organized by the Institute 4 and the Centre for IT and Architecture (CITA) of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation.

Venue: KADK- Auditorium 6, Danneskiold-Sams�es All� 53, 1434 Copenhagen

The starting point of the Symposium Confluence - Establishing data flow from Design to Site is the promise that Building Information Modelling came with: the creation of a fluent building process starting in design and reaching out all along to architectural production and use. Looking at research driven developments in both academia and practice the seminar investigates the contemporary state, challenges and future potential that might emerge from an unlimited flow of information. Here it is research that emphasises the role of fabrication and material while practice develops seemingly approaches that engage directly with contractors and building site.

The research seminar confluence highlights the emerging tools and processes and discusses directions for further development. 

National and international guest lecturers will highlight successful strategies, pitfalls and future challenges through research induced projects that bridge BIM based planning with the digital fabrication in building construction. The seminar cross-examines projects in the full range of scales and aims to establish a platform to share experiences and move the contemporary boundaries of the use of BIM.
