A new era which is dawning in the built environment, leverages bespoke algorithms to take better advantage of a projects digital assets

About this event

Synopsis

Have you ever recently re-watched your favourite TV show or movie from the early 2000s? It is amazing to see these shows in the modern day and be reminded of the days of CRT monitors, flip phones, and no social media. In our lifetime, there have already been major tectonic shifts in technology which have had a radical impact our lives and work. Despite this, the design, construction, and operations of buildings remains one of the most traditional and least digital industries in the world. In large part, the biggest ‘innovation’ in the industry in the past decade has been Building Information Modelling (BIM), which is still not ubiquitously adopted, and whose ROI is still not readily apparent for many stakeholders. In this presentation, Emidio Piermarini of Buro Happold will explain the past, present, and future of data use in the built environment and real estate. In particular, the presentation will focus on a new era which is dawning in the built environment, one that leverages bespoke algorithms to take better advantage of a project’s digital assets and focusing on first on value to the client, then achieving that value through the adoption of technology.

Biography of Emidio Piermarini

Emidio Piermarini is a Chartered Structural Engineer with broad experience in large-scale and complex projects across the world working for Buro Happold. Using engineering first-principles and computation, he unleashes the power of engineering and leads multidisciplinary teams towards the future of design, fabrication, and construction. As the Lead Computational Consultant for BuroHappold in Asia, he works with all engineering disciplines to enable mass-participation in computation by implementing computation on all projects. He is an early contributor to the open-source Buildings and Urban Habitat Object Model (BHoM) and believes the open-source era of AEC represents the future of our industry–design professionals who can communicate and design using code. As such, he is passionate about teaching younger engineers and architects the computational methodologies that will help them throughout their career and is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Architecture at Hong Kong University. He is also the founder of TheComputationalEngineer.com, the world’s first and only resource for computational engineering education, credentialling, and advancement.
