The course, organized in lectures and exercises, aims to provide not only the operational tools for a correct use of parametric software, but also cultural knowledge to critically evaluate the strong change brought by BIM technology to the construction industry. It will be essential to control the management of the construction process (both during the design phase for the structural and economic fields) using the integrated database that is able to correlate graphic data (drawings) with alphanumeric information (GFA automatic calculation, window and door schedules, evaluaton cost, etc.). The course focuses its attention on new trials of interoperability between different software, referring to international case studies, so giving an added and innovative value that in the future could be spent in the workplace.

The student will have to demonstrate to be able to acquire the theoretical knowledge necessary to critically develop the topics proposed during lectures and practical exercises using BIM methodology (BIM). At the end of the course the student will be able to summarize the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed method in relation to the traditional one based on the elaboration of drawings and documents that are not interoperable with each other. In this way the student will prove to have a professional approach to work. Finally, the student will develop a learning method that allows him to continue studying on their own.

It is preferred a good knowledge of the tools provided by CAD software for architectural design and 3D modelling. Then, it is needed a good mastery of the English language.

It is assumed to divide the course into 8 modules. Each lesson will be characterized by the explanation of specific issues resulting from research projects and case studies in progress or already closed, of national and international level. 1/8 - Survey on the state of the art of BIM and software interoperability. 2/8 - Definitions of BIM and interoperability and searching for a real case study. 3/8 - CAD vs. BIM according to the international literature and assignment of a case study. 4/8 – Use of the parametric modeling in architecture (graphical user interface, templates, correlation between visual information, both numerical and graphic, customization of existing libraries and the creation of new ones etc..) 5/8 - Introduction to energy simulations. 6/8 - Sharing information and audit processes. 7/8 - Communication of the design data (report, schedules, drawings derived from the 3D models) 8/8 - BIM for the building management and the general revision of the documents.

The teaching will be divided into: • Theoretical lessons, about scientific knowledge aimed at providing students with critical and cultural tools (50%); • Specific seminars, (with the possible involvement of external experts from the profession world) aimed to focus attention on specific issues (about 10%); • Practical exercises devoted to the use of specific tools for the acquisition of the BIM approach. These exercises are essential for checking the understanding of general technical contents (about 40%).

Modalità di esame: prova scritta; prova orale obbligatoria; elaborato grafico prodotto in gruppo;
The exam will be divided in two parts (written + oral): • Writing test: the candidate will be expected to answer to specific topics developed during the lectures and seminars (max 12/30); • Oral test: The candidate has to present the work done during exercises using the material required to pass the exam and will have to answer the questions posed by the teacher inert submitted papers (max 18/30). The final evaluation will result from the sum of the tests. The grade will take into account the correctness of the documents produced, in addition to the clarity, the ability to synthesis and properties of language demonstrated during the conversation.
