On June 14th, 6:00 pm PST, SFDUG welcomes Brian Ringley and Pardis Mirmalek, from Woods Bagot, as our featured speakers on a technical discussion about Dynamo. This month’s meeting will be hosted at the AIA San Francisco.
3D Isovist study with Dynamo | Pardis Mirmalek
This session demonstrates a study that was done for San Francisco International Airport project in order to identify structural elements being visible from different point of the project and facilitate design rationalization for placing structural element in areas not visible to public.
Pardis Mirmalek is an architect and programmer who’s work focuses on the overlap of Design, Data and Technology. She has worked on diverse range of projects in NY, SF and Dubai. She received her master of Architecture from Princeton University and is currently working as the BIM manager for Woodsbagot-HKS Joint Venture Partners for San Francisco International Airport Project.
What’s the point of using Dynamo, or visual programming for that matter? | Brian Ringley
Brian Ringley will connect remotely from New York. This presentation will check our assumptions, take a step back, and honestly examine which architectural problems node graphs are solving… and which they’re creating. We’ll compare and contrast a number of design computation paradigms including textual scripting, textual programming, and graphical scripting, look at how we create and manage various “levels of intelligence” in our models (object, model, and project), and finally stop trying to compare apples and oranges with Dynamo and Grasshopper.
Brian Ringley is an Associate and Design Technology Specialist at Woods Bagot, where he integrates computational methods for model data interoperability, performance-driven design, and geometric rationalization for fabrication and construction into project production through platform training, bespoke applications, and intensive project support. He has taught at the University of Cincinnati DAAP, City Tech, CCNY Spitzer School of Architecture, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, +FARM, and the AA Visiting School, and currently teaches courses on data-driven parametric design, interoperable workflow convergence, and robotic automation for architectural manufacturing at Pratt Institute’s Graduate Architecture and Urban Design (GAUD) program.
