Firm Honored for Effective Use of Building Information Modeling for Interior Architecture and Design Projects
"Revit Architecture makes it possible for our projects to be divided into discrete portions, which allows our designers to work concurrently on different parts of the project at the same time," said Mitla Morato, architecture department coordinator for Lissoni Associati Milano. "We can immediately see the work of other team members and adjust automatically so our architects can spend more time thinking about designing instead of redoing drawings. We've also found that our client and team reviews are more productive with the photorealistic visualizations we make from the Revit model using 3ds Max."
Renowned architect Piero Lissoni and his partner Nicoletta Canesi founded Studio Lissoni (which later became Lissoni Associati Milano) in 1986 and Graph.x in 1996. With a staff of more than 70 architects, industrial designers and graphic designers, Lissoni Associati Milano's projects range from luxury hotels and residences to custom furniture, kitchen and bathroom systems and accessories, as well as lighting design, corporate identity, signage and packaging. Systema S.r.l. ( http://www.systemasrl.it/) of Milan, Italy provided Lissoni Associati Milano with Revit Architecture software training and implementation support.
Lissoni Associati Milano has demonstrated exemplary use of the BIM process on a number of projects including the interior redesign of an historic Italian palazzo on Lake Garda, and the Brillia Tower Grand-Suite in Nagoya, Japan. The Revit model for the palazzo, which will become a four-star hotel, simplified the process for the demolition and replacement of interior walls and the generation of a large set of construction documents. For the new 29- story Brillia Tower Grand-Suite project, the firm used Revit Architecture to quickly produce a concept design and meet a demanding construction schedule. The Revit model was used in conjunction with Autodesk 3ds Max to create photorealistic visualizations of the residential structure for client and design team reviews.
BIM is an integrated process built on coordinated, reliable information about a project from design through construction and into operations. By adopting BIM, architects, engineers, contractors and owners can easily create coordinated digital design information and documentation; use that information to more accurately visualize, simulate and analyze performance, appearance and cost; and reliably deliver the project faster, more economically and with reduced environmental impact.
About the Revit BIM Experience Award
The Revit BIM Experience Award celebrates building industry professionals and educators around the world who are helping to transform the building industry through building information modeling. Autodesk honors firms with this award for innovation and excellence in implementing the Revit platform (including Revit Architecture, Revit Structure and Revit MEP software applications) for building information modeling on one or more projects. Details of winning projects are available at Revit BIM Experience Award site ( http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=9970998).
