Session A Final Project Brief

FINAL PROJECT for Session A: Parametric Systems BIM –  

Digital Iterative System + Video + 11×17 Boards 

Students will work in groups of 2-3. Each team will determine a point of departure for their project, focusing on ideas and language from their chosen concept image. This could be a particular part or component of a building or something more abstract.

The challenge of the workshop is to gain an adequate understanding of the BIM, so as to fully as possible produce a presentation which exhibits not only a parametric and iterative system, but to have it be informed by what is being queried and reported from the BIM data.

Once each team has chosen their desired project idea, the concept will be further developed and refined using techniques presented in class lectures and tutorials, and further augmented by individual student research. Projects should reflect modifications made by use of data produced from BIM schedules or energy analyses.


Requirements include a digital parametric model (RVT/RFA files), a video (either screen recording software or animated/rendered, to illustrate the parametric nature of the system), and 11×17 boards illustrating and communicating the systems functionality and concept


• Attendance of lecture and tutorials
• Tutorial assignments (5)
• Group project (1)
• Students will be required to work in teams of 3 or 4 to exploit the collaboration tools within Revit
