Stanford CIFE Summer Program 2021 | Generative Design is an Exploration of Creativity

Digitalization is an essential approach to scaling the production of a sustainable, high-performing built environment from a few lighthouse projects to the majority of projects. This year’s CIFE Summer Program will show how owner-operators, design firms, and builders deploy a wide range of digital technologies to address lifecycle concerns more systematically, decarbonize, enhance workforce health and safety, and improve predictability and reliability. Tab the topics below to learn more.

From the session: Generative design and design optimization by Blake Courter, CTO nTopology SBI’s Key Takeaways: 1. Frees time spent on low-yield tasks like tuning wall size to accommodate loads and services 2. nTopology is most compatible with structural and thermal applications 3. CIFE study shows calculation time reduced from weeks to 1 hour with optimization such as:
