  • Aerodynamic Architecture!!!

    We build our houses as boxes, primarily rectangular boxes of varying sizes and shapes. But boxes have lousy geometry when it comes to shedding wind forces. Why aren’t we building residential construction that is more aerodynamic? Read More +
  • Creating BIM Model of an Existing-Conditions

    Capturing and creating a good 3D model of existing conditions is important for establishing a good foundation for any Building Information Modeling project. Make the break from 2D tracing and start with 3D existing condition models. Read More +
  • 4D BIM Model: Cost, Scheduling & Coordination

    Information Technology positions our daily activities and businesses in an increasingly global context: The practice of architecture is no exception. Technology presents new scenarios for Workshare and defines the way in which a design is developed, communicated, and realized. Read More +

Measuring the Value of BIM Investments in Small Firms

In the Volume XI of Architectural Evangelist, our experts discuss about - Why the task of adopting BIM has been very daunting for a small firm? Why doe small firms tend to concentrate more on CAD? Despite all the bold assertions about BIM process and its beneficial aspects, the scenario remains intact – Small and mid-sized design firms still slip into old "CAD habits". you will find practical views on the implementation of BIM from industry professionals. They have shared their best practices. So that you learn from their mistakes and don't have to make your own. Happy BIMming!         Read More.

Repairs, Retrofits and Renovations

The XII Volume of Architectural Evangelist deals with saving our historical and rich heritage buildings, saving our resources, saving energy, saving the planet, and even saving time and money in the process - in short, RENOVATION. Industry professionals share their ideas about the latest developments in laser scanning for capturing the accurate 3D measure of existing buildings, how the government directives, are recognising the value of BIM to keep a virtual record of historical buildings, and how BIM applied to the whole spectrum of renovation projects can bring a more holistic sensitivity to our built environment. We hope that this issue will help you to improve the existing renovation processes, showing that there are some better ways.                                                                    Read More.

Sustainability and BIM

In 1972 Welsh architect Alex Gordon wrote about the need for "Long Life, Loose Fit, Low Energy"; Today this would translate to sustainability, flexibility and energy efficiency. His paper crystallised the counter-culture reaction to corporate excesses in the 70's, and though largely forgotten today, helped bring the concept of sustainability into today's mainstream thinking. Daniel Lindahl have identified the five broad areas of focus for sustainable building and elaborated on them in more detail: context, labour, materials, operation and longevity.                                             Read More.
