Welcome to issue #03 of TGIC. Every Friday I curate the top content at the intersection of Design, Computation and Technology and share my discoveries with other enthusiasts around the world. I hope you enjoy reading this week’s issue.
The primary motive of a CDE is to build an accurate and well-structured data set, which, as stages progresses, transforms into a ‘Project Information Model’ (PIM) and later on into an 'Asset Information Model’ (AIM).
There are no actual standards for environmental performance in the waste industry. The vision of SWEEP is to create a world without waste where materials are valued and continually utilized for their highest and best purpose, without causing harm to human health and the environment.
In terms of data, every tree is given an unique ID number, a color indicating its species, its exact location, storm water intercepted, energy conserved, air pollutants removed, CO2 reduced and value in $ for the citizens.
Information modelling started at the outset with the lead designers developing and federating their graphical models in a Common Data Environment (CDE). This approach was the basis for weekly workshops where the team would co-ordinate their proposals around one federated model.

From CAD to BIM, 3D printing, and virtual reality, technology’s influence upon architectural production is pervasive and increasingly rapid. Much talk of the next big thing focuses on generative design. But what is it and how will it impact architects? Marc K. Howe spoke with Danil Nagy of Autodesk Research Group’s The Living, which is at the forefront of generative design, about the potential of generative design software and how it is being used on one particular project.
