title Integration of an Algorithmic BIM Approach in a Traditional Architecture Studio

summary Algorithmic BIM combines BIM and Generative Design (GD), merging the potentialities of both approaches. In this paper we describe the design process of a set of parametric facades developed using Algorithmic-BIM, and how this approach was integrated into the design workflow of two architectural studios. We demonstrate how the integration of GD together with BIM influenced the whole design process and also the selection of the final solution. Some of the limitations found during the entire process are also addressed in the paper, such as tight deadlines and financial constraints. Finally, we explain the pros and cons of using this design method compared to a traditional BIM approach, and we discuss the implementation of this paradigm in a traditional design practice. This work was developed using Rosetta, an IDE for Generative Design that supports scripts using different programming languages and allows the generation and edition of 3D models in a variety of CAD and BIM applications. The result of this work is an information model of three parametric facades for a residential building, from which we can extract material quantities and construction performance tests.
