BSS FINAL PROJECT

We are really happy and proud of the work of our first woman BSS ArchiCAD+Grasshopper Building System Specialist Marina  👩‍🎓

 

It was a pleasure to spend and share this nice and intense months with her. But this is her day, her celebration after this hard and amazing work what she made :


“The idea behind this project was to take fractal growth as a model for a city that can change its density while keeping the same structure. The biggest challenge for me was to find a realistic proportion between the building environment and the voids which are represented as the green areas.  Everything in this video is generated inside Archicad directly from Grasshopper. The python component was used to create a parametric masterplan pattern based on a recursive algorithm

I learned how to make all of this  in The BSS course at PAZ Academy created by Andrés and Nora who were also my tutors. Anyone can take this course including people with zero background in computational design. The course consists of three parts which are dedicated to develop a set of skills which one can immediately implement in work:

The 1st PART is a system of methods and resources that gives a solid base to start with your BIM software and Grasshopper connection.

The 2nd PART teaches how to manage the data from both sides.

The 3rd PART (is my favorite one).  It is exceptionally helpful and provides you with approaches to a variety of subjects.

I want to thank Nora and Andrés for the patient guidance during these 4 months. It was an incredible journey into the depths of parametric design and BIM which helped me to discover the confidence in using such powerful tools on a regular basis. I also appreciated the competition approach, although I am not a competitive person  it really helped me to stay motivated. Very often I took some time to discover more about the subject and I was always supported by the tutors. 

This course was a fortunate investment in my professional skills and an amazing experience!” – Marina

Thanks a lot for this nice words Marina and let’s continue : D

As architects, our goal and passion is to create smart, high quality design. For this reason, we always have to mix and match our tools with our task in order to achieve our professional freedom. Digital tools help you to cross software barriers, open workflows, connect them in real time and provide easy access to join forces with other professionals around our planet. : )

The buildings you design are a reflection of your identity. The way they look, perform, and the feelings they emote – are all related to your beliefs, your values, and your vision as an architect.

But what about your workflow? Does your workflow express the same ideas as your projects? In addition to what you design, we believe that how you design says something about you, too.

In this unprecedented collaboration, two computational designers explain their story, and how open technology and advanced workflows help express their identity, allowing them: To share information freely – maintaining design momentum without missing a beat. The freedom to choose – which design route to take, which software to use. A fun and rewarding experience – doing what they love while still meeting deadlines.

From computational design to documentation, mixing and matching technology to fit the needs of the project, and bringing a sense of fun and freedom to the entire process, this webinar will reveal the true identities of major international BIM players PAZ Academy, McNeel & Associates, and GRAPHISOFT.

To learn more about ArchiCAD and the Grasshopper Connection and how to be #BIMlingual connection ArchiCAD and Revit real time thanks to the Rhino Inside Revit development.

BSS TALK – NATHAN LUKE

BSS TALKS – NATHAN LUKE – GEOMETRY GYM about Parametric BIM Models

Parametric BIM
In our Building System Specialist Talk – BSS Talk – PAZ Academy invited Nathan Luke from Geometry Gym to learn about Parametric BIM Models.

We are very happy and excited to welcome Nathan Luke, Structural engineering consultant, software and tool developer from Geometry Gym.

Nathan joined GeometryGym in late 2018 after 8 years as a structural engineering consultant. Nathan is apart of the software development, training, support and sales teams and predominately focuses on tools development and supporting engineering clients. So he has a lot to explain and show us!

So let’s listen him and enjoy this hour with his great and dedicated work!

Thanks Nathan!

A bit about Geometry Gym : Founded in 2009, Geometry Gym started predominately around the idea of generating structural analysis models from complex architectural forms, generally between Rhino3d/Grasshopper and Oaysis GSA. As a transfer mechanism Jon learnt about the world of IFC and OpenBIM as a way of transferring this information between a whole range of software applications. So they do an amazing and incredible job!

 

How you can be part of it? Join to our Building System Specialist Title and a lot of Talks, Suprises are waiting for you : )

ARE YOU BIMlingual ?

A lot of research shows that from 60 to 75 percent of our population speak at least two languages so they are multilingual. And as we know, many countries have more than one official national language – like Switzerland with four or South Africa with eleven. But why most of us speak only one software language? Do you want to become BIMlingual?

#BIMlingual

BIMlingual
BIMlingual, how to speak and connect multiple BIM Software, for example Revit + ArchiCAD trough Grasshopper and RhinoInsideRevit.

We have around 6500 languages in the world, but we don’t know the exact number. We can talk about dialects, less widely spoken ones, popular and official. Our students and professors speak 20 human languages and communicate in at least 4 different ones every day.

As research shows, the human brain has evolved to be multilingual, and those who speak only one language and are monolingual are not exploring their full potential. Biological evolution, language evolution, technological evolution, but most changes are driven by environmental, social and political pressures. Computer and software languages are just as important for expressing ourselves, our ideas as human languages. In order to achieve our professional freedom, we have to overcome our BIM monolingualism.

We are proud that more and more languages are joining our BSS group – both on a human and computer level! : )

BE MULTILINGUAL = BIMlingual

COMMUNICATION

Communication is fundamental to human existence and survival. From the first day we are born, we give signals to be understood and listened. During our lives it is continuous. It gets easier in the moment when we start to use a communication channel that is understood by more parties. Communication is the act of sharing information from one person to another person or group of people.

Every time we understand a different language, a different culture, a different software, we better understand the world, so our job and the others. It is economically, emotionally and socially beneficial. As we see in the AEC world, translators, exports and imports between software and version takes us a lot of time and errors.

Each new language gives you a new perspective and update to better understand the routes in order to improve your problem solving skills, to be able to multitask, make better and more rational, systematic and clear decisions and communicate and help across professionals / your team and countries.

Become BSS BIMlingual, open up a new opportunity and make your communication easier and find the perfect channel with others.

#COMMUNICATION

MULTILINGUAL

Bilingual brains depending on their task and what they want to express they sort out which language to use. They know in which task which one to use to solve problems faster and more accurate, expressing themselves that the others understand. It is something that they do not have to think about, it is coming automatically. Each new one will be a greater benefit, helping your brain to keep fit and healthy, not speaking about your professional opportunities and additional doors what you will open for your advance your career.

We know it is investment of time, energy and money. To make it structured, direct, and personal we built up the only and unique professional BSS – the Building System Specialist Title. You will connect ArchiCAD + Grasshopper, Revit with RhinoInside Revit. It will have a massive impact in your professional career, meanwhile we talk you BIMlingual Rhinoceros3D, Grasshopper, Archicad, Revit, Rhino Inside Revit, Paramo, Python, Ladybug and much until you also can : D

Take care, it is addictive ; D

PAZ STUDIO – WEDDING DESIGN

PAZ STUDIO – WEDDING DESIGN ; )

We are really happy to have the honour of creating a special design for a special wedding  : D

We have combined arts & crafts with technology to create the most personal and appropriate design that made our client’s dream come true! ; )  All the name – sitting cards, menu cards and gifts were painted carefully with gold and red Bordeaux watercolour, with a brush,  sponge and a lot of feeling and sensitivity : D

For the inner part of the box – which is holding the different types of the design – we used digitalfabrication,  testing and finding the best fit and presentation for the couple : )

For the cover – J&C sticker – PAZ created a lovely Hungarian pattern generator that is flexible and adaptable for the perfect design and preserves a small part of the heritage,  reminding to the Hungarian animated series, the storytelling about love, truthfulness and true values and principles :

We are very happy and grateful to be part of this dream and happiness and we wish the couple many wonderful years : )  👩‍❤️‍👨✨

PAZ – GEODATA

How to read, analyze and act for your building?

It was a pleasure to exchange and learn from José Martinez, CEO of the Spanish Geothermal Association and founder and chairman of TACHYON Earth Switzerland : D

We want to highlight the importance of understanding the roots of our buildings and the connection with the earth and their implementation from the first sketch of our building and cities. How to connect with nature, read all layers and information under our feet to create an efficient balance with our constructions : D

The neutral network provides real-time data to design and control the performance of our building, generating a loop that can read, analyze and act using a powerful combination of software, hardware and robotics : D

At PAZ, one of our greatest effort is to share with our colleagues how important is the digestion of data and environmental analysis, in order to develop our projects from the very first step. For this reason, we are excited about this collaboration, finding new synergies between science, physics and the world of architectural design.

We are really grateful for this multidisciplinary exchange and the opportunity to connect with open minded professionals who are always thinking in new ways to evolve using science as the main foundation ; )
