FROM SKETCH TO BIM - Online Open Lecture: Estúdio41 Architecture and Urban Design (Brazil)

The HafenCity University Hamburg, the HCU BIM Lab, and the Digital City Science invite you to the lecture with the Estúdio41 Architecture and Urban Design (Brazil). Their awarded architects and engineers will present a brief history of three buildings designed by the office. The lecture ‘From Sketch to BIM’ will depart from the initial drafts, jumping into the final design and engineering, passing through the construction phase and the use of Building Information Management/Modelling (BIM)-

Presentation of three cases:

Scientific station of Brazil in Antarctica (2013-2020): The winning project of an international design competition for Brazil's Comandante Ferraz scientific station, which received proposals from architects from all parts of the world. The building design received attention from specialized and prominent media outlets, besides architecture prizes worldwide. ‘The Coolest Architecture on Earth Is in Antarctica’ (NY Times).

Headquarters, educational, and cultural facilities for the Rio Grande do Sul State Trade Federation - Fecomércio-RS (2011-2020): The proposed design won a national competition with a new way of interpreting the relationship between the rural environment and the city, between natural and artificial.

Laguna Gallery (2017-2020): The first building in the world to achieve a triple-digit level in the world-class certification Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design - LEED Platinum.

The lecture is part of the WiSe 22/23 course ‘QS-B-001-008 BIM = Building is Magic?’, conceptualized and conducted by the HCU Hamburg Digital City Science, led by Prof. Dr. Noennig, and the team members Ms.C. Cserpes, Ms.C. Gaidhankar, and Dr. Medeiros. The HCU BIM Lab is an initiative by professors Bögle, Mondino, Noennig, and Sternberg.
