Topics Covered

The presentation materials introduce the conceptual background of BIM, rather than comparing the capabilities of commercial software solutions. The lectures cover various topics, such as how BIM changes the architectural design workflow, construction coordination or sustainable design. The first lecture provides a generic overview of the fundamentals of architectural representation and as such it is intended for those who want to learn about BIM without having a professional architectural background. For laboratory practice GRAPHISOFT recommends using the different volumes of the ARCHICAD Training Series.
