The Thinking Collaboratively: Manipulating Technology to Direct the Design Process

Pascale Sablan, AIA, LEED AP, will explain the FXFOWLE design process and the integration of architectural SOFTWARE – Ecotect, 3DMaxx, Rhino, Revit, and AutoCAD – that was used to design the Museum of the Built Environment, one of eleven projects designed by FXFOWLE architects in the King Abdullah Financial District, a new 55 million-square-foot mixed-use urban development currently under construction in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. She will focus on the rational use of technology by the project’s diverse design team to advance architectural and environmental goals, as well as lessons learned during the designs development.

The program will illustrate that thinking collaboratively is a mantra that works for team members and architectural SOFTWARE both.
