What: Thornton Tomasetti, the international engineering firm, will present itssecond annual Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Technology Symposium and Hackathon. Conducted in two sessions, the one-day symposium will focus on computational design and big data. The morning session will highlightrecent advances in computational design, analysis, constructionand fabrication. The afternoondiscussionwill focuson how web-based applications can enhance these processes in the future.A cocktail reception will follow.
A two-day “hackathon”after the symposium will challenge participants to generate new ideas and processes that focus on the following two topics: web-based applications that enhance design and collaboration processes for the AEC industry; and tools and processes that promote data-driven building design.
Where/When: The symposium will take place on Friday, May 16, from 9a.m. to 6p.m. at The Cooper Union, 41 Cooper Square in New York, N.Y.The hackathonwill follow on Saturday and Sunday, May 17 and 18, at the same location.
