Lotus Pond Bridge: A Case Study in Collaboration Using Parametric Modeling
ACADIA Quarterly, vol. 20, pp. 8-9
One of my tasks while working for Arup in Los Angeles was to teach engineers how to design and communicate using the same tools as architects. As increasing numbers of clients provided us with virtual massing and conceptual models to work from, my colleagues began to acknowledge the need to develop engineering solutions within these same virtual environments. So, my challenge was to not only utilize 3D modeling for visualization but also for design, analysis and production.
