Three days spent last week in the lovely city of Vancouver, British Columbia at the Revit Technology Conference North America. An excellent alternative to the frenzy of Autodesk University, so long as all you are interested in is talking about Revit. Frankly, its a little amazing (and perhaps a bit disturbing) to see  this many people gathered in one place all willing to talk about Revit for three days solid!

Helen Gorina of Perkins+Will demonstrated the modeling process used to create the sails on the Kempinski Hotel and Tower in Jeddah.

A few of the conference highlights for me were seeing the latest work on Dynamo presented by Matt Jezyk and company of Autodesk, some excellent insight into the Revit API from Harry Mattison of BoostYourBim, amazing parametric work by Marcello Sgambelluri using the new Adaptive Components tools, and time Waldock’s attempts to force-feed fractals into Revit.  His work on recreating the geometry of Calatrava’s Oriente Station in Lisbon was particularly well done, as was Helen Gorina’s presentation on Applying Math and Logic to Facade Design.  Two images from those presentations here.
