BIM: why culture, competences and interfaces matter
[Anotace] When can architects BIM successfully – and when not.
[CV] Odilo Schoch is an Assistant Professor at the Centre for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA) at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen, Denmark.
His academic work started at ETH Zurich by setting up their postgraduate course in CAAD at the chair of Prof. Dr. Ludger Hovestadt. His current research elaborates approaches to handle the genesis of architecture in the early phases of a building by considering the demands of its whole lifecycle. This holistic approach links directly to both parametric design and sustainability. His research is based on professional experiences in offices such as Baumschlager-Eberle Architects, Gramazio Kohler Architects and Ove Arup and Partners.
With education at ETH Zurich, RWTH Aachen and UCL (Bartlett), he holds two master degrees from ETH Zurich. His dissertation elaborates a quality management approach based on the Japanese Kaizen for the design of smart buildings (ubicomp).
