Perpective View of the project. Anthony O.
We present the work of Anthony O. from the University of Houston, who has shared his personal experience in the use of VisualARQ for this project: The Innovation Center in Houston.
"The fact that VisualARQ uses BIM models that can be edited saved me huge amounts of time from having to model things such as doors, windows, columns etc. VisualARQ was also used for the first studies of building elevations and led to be helpful with the automatic creation of the elevations from the BIM models plugged into the project."
"VisualARQ was useful for me when it came to accurately documenting a project that had been designed in hand sketches and physical study models. The simple yet very functional layout of VisualARQ allowed me to produce these documents quickly and efficiently."

BIM World 2017
Espace Grande Arche
Paris La Défense
Rhinoforyou stand (219 A)
March 29-30, 2017
9:00am - 6:00pm
Rhinoforyou will be exhibiting at BIM World 2017 in Paris, from March 29 to March 30 (stand 219 A).
Rhinoforyou will be presenting the BIM software solution RhinoArchitecture, an innovative and economically affordable solution that integrates consistently Rhinoceros, Grasshopper and VisualARQ. Winner of the PTNB 2016 (category "Building envelope"), RhinoArchitecture is the first solution to see the convergence of design and parametric design with BIM.
Rhinoforyou will also be presenting its Geometry Gym connectors (direct or via IFC) for CAD software (Revit, Tekla, Rhino...) and for calculation software.
Experts Francesc Salla, VisualARQ product manager, and Jon Mirtschin from Geometry Gym Ltd. will also be present at the stand.

This video shows a parametric approach to create part of the structure of the famous Farnsworth House of Mies van der Rohe using VisualARQ Grasshopper Components.
The process starts by subdividing the area to cover into different panels, which are used to generate a new profile for the beams. Later on, this new profile is used to generate a new beam style in Grasshopper. Then the VisualARQ beams are created using this new style and taking the edges of the subdivided surface as the path curves.
Finally, when the beam components are baked, they become workable VisualARQ beam elements in the existing Rhino model.
This video has been created by Michele Calvano, architect, co-founder of ArFacade (http://www.arfacade.com/), and researcher in the Faculty of Architecture of the Sapienza University of Rome (http://www.drawing4design.com/).

Forum ITIAPE 2017
January 20th 2017, 8.30h to 16.30h.
The forum ITIAPE returns to ISA Lille on January 20th 2017, from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm.
Organized by the promotion 23 (landscape engineer students), the event will focus on innovative studies related to the landscape sector such as urban agriculture, sensitive environments, management, soil remediation, interior design, plants and maintenance.
It is also an opportunity to discover the students research work, participate in various activities with professional speakers, meet landscape architects and also expand your network thanks to the invited exhibitor suppliers.
Francesc Salla, VisualARQ and Lands Design product manager will be present to show the new Lands Design Beta version and the coming VisualARQ 2.0 version.
