About the event

In this installment, practitioners from Buro Happold Engineering, KieranTimberlake, and Jacobs will showcase the various design methods and technologies they employ in their workflow, highlighting some of their recent work on in-house tools and hacks, as well as project visualization and analysis techniques developed in their practices.  The importance of communication and interoperability in the AEC industry will be illustrated through live demonstration of a visual and interactive hack with event attendees. The hack will be displayed on screens in the background while an open table discussion about digital design in the AEC industry is held.
