The use of 3D in buildings is now the main option (and concern) of the “technological” architect

3D model of the Alberta Art Gallery (Randall Stout architects).


Interoperating between more flexible and agile software with other already existing software, and producing the necessary technical documentation in a better way are the other two main concerns of the professionals

With the technological race, architects from all over the world have had to enhance their skills or become obsolete, updating and looking towards new design processes or tools that enable them to express their creativity regarding the demands of the client. However, what are the main doubts of today’s architect before making the leap and embracing these technological advances? What challenges and difficulties must they face more often? Today, the most requested information from the technical support teams of Rhino, VisualARQ and Grasshopper ( three of the most innovative design spheres ) is how to model in 3D with precision and free of errors. It is followed by interoperability between faster and more flexible software, with other existing software which, although more rigid, are used by most studios. Finally, architects ask about how to produce the necessary technical documentation in a better and more complete way for each project.
