BIM and Landscape Architecture

BIM-Landscape-Architecture-Data
Many landscape architects get hung up on the concept of BIM (Building Information Modeling), simply because it contains the word ‘building’. But BIM is really just the next technological progression in the AEC industry. It is a shift from creating printed drawings of the landscape, to creating and coordinating data within a digital model of the landscape.

Registrations open for L Train Shutdown Charrette

LTrainCharette

Van Alen Institute has opened registrations for the L Train Shutdown Charrette. The Canarsie tunnel connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn on the L line will be closed completely for one and a half years or closed partially for three years to make repairs due to damage from Superstorm Sandy. Van Alen Institute is holding a charette propose implementable interventions that look beyond shuttle buses and private cars. Participants from both design and non-design fields are invited to this program that asks how unforeseen design solutions can facilitate easier routes during service shutdowns.

Have an idea? There is no entry fee to enter. Form an interdisciplinary team of at least two people and send us your 150-word concept by midnight EDT on June 9. 

Find out more from Van Alen Institute

Note from the Editor: Why is this posted on a landscape architecture blog? Because landscape architects look at problems at a macro scale and thought that a landscape architect teamed with an engineer, architect or other non-design discipline could create a disruptive solution. It will be interesting to see everyone’s ideas.
