The importance of designing with the best tools to match the objectives of the creative leaps designer want to explore is an ever-increasing topic within the industry. Disruption of how we work and how the technology is changing the way we think about design solutions is allowing a shift in skill sets and is allowing an emergence of digital design workflows. Within this session we will look at the context of recent trends in the Architecture industry and why this is important to embrace. There will be a series of stages that designers work through at early design stages for delivering the project proposal. However, part two will focus on three design tasks that are relevant to all designers for application within their core business. From site acquisitions to distribution of spaces to optimisations of the building footprints and the building products used to constitute a design proposal. By using the Autodesk AEC Collection and tools such as FormIt Pro, Insight 360, Dynamo, Infraworks and Revit.
