INFORMATIVE ARCHETYPES V2.0
INFORMATIVE ARCHETYPES V2.0 is an integrative design workshop focusing on implementing BIM methods to conceptualize stadiums. Students will be designing a soccer stadium at Obere Augartenstrabe in the city of Vienna after learning the BIM tools that enables them to design parametric systems and generate forms based on physical constraints. The workshop will take off from making self-aware BIM Families using intelligent Parameters and slide all the way through integrating them as elements to assemble the final geometry.
Teaming. Teaming is based on “families” made by each participant. Further, teams will devise a spatial concept – a theme regarding their combined chosen design factors. A team’s theme will consist of logical cores – the previously chosen factors – and will be used as a guideline and purpose of the design.
Informed Geometry. Controlling Family Parameters the team’s chosen parameters can be used to derive an overall geometrical concept.
Constraint-Based Form-Finding. Dive into the world of finding form through physical constraints in a BIM environment.
Each generated stadium will have
- The Field
- Interior Sitting Zones
- Structural elements
- Exterior Skin-system
- Control of elements via parameters
- Scheduling of elements by chosen factors
Participants will be exposed to an atmosphere of exploration on the aesthetic potential of such design processes and learn to present their work in an intriguing graphical manner, in addition to extracting valuable information about the design from the model.
BIM design techniques
Participants will be introduced to BIM, learn how BIM can be integrated with external references, its advantages compared to other computer-aided design methods.
Participants will be provided with a 3D model of the site and learn how to extract and use site-specific data to control form and family parameters.
Parameterizing a BIM system
Setting on baseline geometry and conditions of site, participants will further elaborate into BIM-specific workflows utilizing parameters and nested families. Procedural control of Revit families through Dynamo would allow highly responsive and informed system.
Applying physical constraints to find generative forms such as minimal surfaces, and simulating cloth-like shapes using the Dynashape package for Dynamo.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Each Participant should provide their own computer with the following software installed. If you do not have a software, trial versions can be found on each software company’s website. We will send participants links to the required software, trials, and plug-ins for download. Please have the software installed prior to workshop start. If you have issues installing software, we may be able to help you during the workshop.
- Autodesk Revit (Latest version)
- Dynamo for Revit (Latest version with necessary packages to be announced prior to workshop)
- V-Ray for Revit (Latest version)
- Dynashape for Dynamo
- Adobe Photoshop
Informative Archetypes V2.0 will expand from 07 July – 12 July 2018.
Daily meetings will take place from 10:00 to 18:00 at TU Wien, Karlsgasse 11, Erdgeschoss, Seminarraum 1 Wien 1040.
Participants will first work individually and then be combined into groups.
There will be a final presentation of your groups work containing renderings and diagrams on 12 July, 2018.
All projects will be published on DesignMorphine’s web page.
All participants who complete the workshop will receive a certificate of completion.
For attending the workshop there is no previous software experience required.
Participants need to bring their own laptops or workstations.
Please note that places are very limited on a first pay first serve basis!
