DATE:

JULY 2013

SOFTWARE:

REVIT 2014

PROJECT CONTRIBUTION: WORKING

WITH A LARGE TEAM OF

ARCHITECTS, DEVELOPERS, AND A LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE COLLABORATOR A PROPOSAL WAS DRAFTED FOR AN

RFP

LOCATED

IN A DEVELOPING AREA OF THE

BRONX. MAJOR

CONTRIBUTIONS

FOR THE PROJECT WERE THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE

REVIT BIM

MODEL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF DRAWINGS AND ZONING ANALYSES.

OTHER

CONTRIBUTIONS WERE

LARGELY RENDERING FOR THE FINISHED PROPOSAL USING CLOUD RENDERING TECHNIQUES FOR EFFICIENCY AND PHOTOSHOP FOR FINISHED OUTPUT.

MORPHOLOGY THE

CONCEPT BEHIND THE TERM MORPHOLOGY IS

THE IDEA THAT THE SHELL CAN ADAPT TO ADDRESS A NUMBER OF VARIABLES PLACED UPON IT.

IN

THE CASE OF THIS DESIGN THE

APERTURES BUILT INTO THE SKIN OF THE BUILDING ARE BEING ALTERED BASED UPON DISTANCE TO A GIVEN POINT IN SPACE.

THIS

POINT CAN REPRESENT SUN ANGLES OR DESIRABLE VIEWS TO BE FRAMED OR ENHANCED BY THE ADJUSTMENT OF APERTURE SIZES ON THE SKIN.

ALTHOUGH

STILL A RELATIVE WORK IN

PROGRESS THE METHODOLOGIES ARE LOOKING TO BE APPLIED TO A NUMBER OF VARIABLES IN THE STRUCTURE OF THE BUILDING SKIN.

THESE

INCLUDE EXTRUSION DEPTHS, APERTURE ANGLES, AND MEMBER CLUSTERING.
