Practical Representation of Complex Geometry

The evolution in software created for complex geometry development in buildings and building elements has resulted in difficulties representing architectural and structural data in a conventional 2D format.

This lecture explores the methods for representing complex geometry throughout the stages of project evolution, including tender and construction. It looks at historical precedent, challenges faced using current methods, and options for modern complex geometric resolution that may challenge how we think about contract documents.
