Workshop 2019

The Workshop aims to provide the most up-to-date tools and the most advanced procedures for architectural design, surveying, design and visualization, that is, for the dissemination of the project, architecture and cultural heritage. The Workshop also intends to establish itself as a privileged observatory on the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in architectural and sustainable design, examining both the technical aspects and the new procedures foreseen by the regulations regarding this new philosophy of organization of the project representation.

On one hand the Workshop focuses on three-dimensional modeling, image management (static and dynamic) with visual effects in post production and representation through the use of 3D printers: procedures that allow effective visualization and understanding of design processes and/or reconstruction of historical buildings.

On the other hand, the Workshop deals with B.I.M. (Building Information Modeling), seen as a logic and information resource, where the designer is at the center of the construction process, at the small, medium and large scale. In recent years, in fact, the project, from idea to testing, has been breaking up into a myriad of sectors often managed by different professionals, with inevitable coordination problems that affect the design processes disconnected from each other, whose origins fall back, from time to time, on the key terms of the proposal, slowing down the process and considerably exacerbating costs.

Also the new code of the contracts and the concessions to the art. 23 c.13 provides for the rationalization of design activities and related checks through the progressive use of specific electronic methods and tools such as modeling for construction and infrastructure. With B.I.M. the representation can return to have a primary role in the information management of the whole project, processes could be integrated, collaboration among the operators of the sector could increase, ensuring a higher quality of the work realized according to the design intent.

The goal is to provide greater awareness of the processes oriented towards BIM and the possibilities they offer and how a designer must relate to these new ways of managing n-dimensional project information.

Workshop 2018 Edition

Workshop “3D Modeling & BIM” edition 2018, fourth edition, was held at the Faculty of Architecture of Sapienza University of Rome on 18th and 19th April 2018, with the participation of about 600 auditors, including scholars, architects, engineers, staff lecturer and students of the Faculty of Architecture.
The Italian Drawing Union has granted patronage for the 2018 edition.
The Order of Engineers of Rome has granted patronage for the 2018 edition.
ACER, Association of Roman Building Constructors, has granted patronage for the 2018 edition.

Workshop 2019 Organization

The Workshop aims to collect research and interests around 3D modeling, visualization techniques and BIM at national and international level. For this reason it will have a double entry channel: that of the listeners, which can be attributed free of charge to the teaching staff, students of the Faculties of Architecture and Engineering, Architects, Engineers and Surveyors registered to the respective orders/colleges (for professionals a certificate of attendance is issued upon request at the two days, in addition to the provision of CFP – professional training credits by the orders/colleges); that of scholars, after sending a paper, if selected valid for oral presentation, with subsequent inclusion in the book of the Workshop, where is required an entry fee of 200 Euros (as a contribution for the realization of a specific appropriate publication of documents with ISBN).

The publication is published by DEI – Tipografia del Genio Civile, in digital format.
The Workshop is organized for the part of scientific coordination by the Department of History, Representation and Restoration of Architecture, Sapienza University of Rome, the Faculty of Architecture and the BIM Master of Sapienza University of Rome.

Workshop’s dates

The Workshop is divided into 2 days, 10 -11 April 2019.

The morning of the first day is scheduled a plenary session with the greetings of the authorities (Rector or Pro Rector of Sapienza, Dean of the Faculty of Architecture of Rome, Director of DSDRA, Presidents of the Order of Architects of Rome and Province, President of the Order of Engineers of Rome) and presentation of the Workshop by the organizers. There are some oral presentations to invite experts who will provide an important theoretical and professional contribution in the two main sectors in which the Workshop is organized.

The first afternoon, the second morning and the second afternoon are divided into sessions:
• BIM in new achievements;
• BIM in the existing building heritage;
• 3D Modeling.
The “chairs” of the subsections are held by professors and scholars with skills in the area of representation (belonging to the Department of History, Representation and Restoration of Architecture, Sapienza University of Rome and the BIM Master) and/or experts in the subjects dealt with in the Workshop.

Workshop’s papers selections and official languages

Official languages of the Workshop are Italian and English.
The call for papers addressed to scholars is open from December 1, 2018 to January 31, 2019, with the presentation of a paper in Italian and English composed of up to 3000 words + 10 images (for each language).
Papers are submitted to double blind review.
Full text papers must be sent in the format provided in the template provided by the organizers and in two languages (Italian and English) by 31 January 2019.
The acceptance of the paper is communicated on February 20, 2019.
The publication of the paper takes place after registration to the workshop of at least 1 of the authors indicated in the paper by March 15, 2019: registration fee 200 euros.
