While at Autodesk University 2018 in Las Vegas, my friend and co-presenter – Lorenzo Villaggi – and I were invited by Jacqueline Rohrmann – known to many of you as That BIM Girl – to talk to her (and her YouTube viewers) about generative design, and specifically the tool we helped create for Van Wijnen to perform generative urban design.
I first met Jacqueline at the AEC Hackathon in Berlin, back in July: she was part of a team – That BIM Pineapples – that I mentored. I met her again in Darmstadt at the Forge DevCon, when she gave a fun presentation over dinner about her first steps with the Forge platform (culminating in her team winning a prize at the Berlin hackathon).
It was a lot of fun catching up again with Jacqueline in Las Vegas, both at Shaan Hurley’s blogger/social media event and during the interview itself.
Here’s the video:
Many thanks to Jacqueline for inviting us to speak!
Tomorrow morning I’m heading off to Ireland for the first time to meeting with a customer in Dublin and to visit our new office there. (Yes, I know it’s crazy that it’s my first visit, but I haven’t lived in the UK for many years and I somehow never took the time/had the chance to go while I did live there.) As Guinness is my favourite beer I’m really looking forward to tasting one (or perhaps two) in a pub in Dublin. Sláinte!
