VIDEO | The Business of Creativity: Staying Creative in Your Firm


Nemetschek Vectorworks recently started publishing videos from their The Business of Creativity series. This video brings together three architects Dylan Chappell, Ali Honarkar and Michael Timchek to discuss the ehether making decisions about which projects to accept, driving a design’s evolution or delivering an imaginative solution, balancing everything while ensuring creativity remains central to everything. An interesting conversation that addresses topics and issues that designers have to address during the daily operations of running a design business. The video is just over 30 minutes but is worth watching giving great insights.

Nemetschek Vectorworks is a World Landscape Architecture partner.

VIDEO | Christophe Girot, `Topology: On Sensing and Conceiving Landscape`


Harvard GSD recently posted a lecture by Christophe Girot titled “Topology: On Sensing and Conceiving Landscape”. An lecture that will intrigue students and professionals interested in Visualisation and Computer Modelling. Girot shows various projects, processes and the tools (Terrestial Laser Scanners, Point Cloud, Rhino, GIS, etc) used to create models of existing and proposed landscapes around the world.

The invention of landscape has always oscillated between a history of beliefs in nature, with its many representations, and a history of terrain measurements through various techniques of appropriation. In his talk, Christophe Girot will consider the longstanding balance between culture and its instruments for sensing and conceiving a landscape, noting that the particular representation of landscape that we hold true today has roots in the dialogue between ars and techne that has characterized every epoch. The aim of this talk and discussion is to open a window on topology’s shifting point of view with regard to this form of interdependence that will considerably affect our ability to act and perform effectively on landscape’s reality.
