title WP-BIM: Web-based Parametric BIM Towards Online Collaborative Design and Optimization
source Fioravanti, A, Cursi, S, Elahmar, S, Gargaro, S, Loffreda, G, Novembri, G, Trento, A (eds.), ShoCK! - Sharing Computational Knowledge! - Proceedings of the 35th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy, 20-22 September 2017, pp. 527-534
summary We present initial experiments of Web-based Parametric Building Information Modeling (WP-BIM) towards collaborative design, modeling, simulation, and optimization. A new framework that integrates Web-based information technology (WebGL graphics, networking, and Web browsers), and design computing technology (visual programming) into parametric BIM is prototyped for the experiments. The integration of Web technology is going to enable online collaborative and user participatory design. Connected through the Web platform, a BIM model, visual programming-based user interfaces for parametric changes, and an optimization algorithm, which may reside in different servers or local computers in different geographical locations, have the potential to be integrated and working together to resolve design optimization problems, especially if combined with cloud-based performance simulation tools. After future development, this may allow architects, engineers, clients, etc. to collaboratively work on a project with up-to-date building data and different design and simulation tools.
