NBBJ Digital Practice to Feature Prominently at Autodesk University 2015

The Venetian, Las Vegas, December 1–3, 2015

At Autodesk University 2015 in Las Vegas, three members of NBBJ’s Digital Practice will share their expertise with the larger design community.

For “The Why and How of AEC Hackathons,” Marc Syp and Andrew Heumann will introduce hackathons and how they can be used to drive innovation and team performance in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) environment. They will talk about the origins of hackathons, how they have been driving innovation in the tech industry, and why companies of all types have been embracing this process. They will also discuss marketing opportunities and the intangible positive effects hackathons have on an organization’s culture.

As well, Nate Holland will present “Practical Design Computation: Dynamo for Informed Design and Streamlined BIM” to demonstrate how the Dynamo visual programming extension excels at bridging the gap between Revit software and the ways that designers want to work. The class will focus on how Dynamo fits into the design computation workflow by walking through a series of example tools, processes and approaches to computation.
