On Saturday, March 4, 2017, the first lecture was held at the Vallegiulia BIM Workshop (vai al sito google) at the Faculty of Architecture of the La Sapienza. The objective of the BIM workshop is to train participating students on the new design methods offered by Building Information Modeling and the digitization of information. In particular, the student will be confronted with the most advanced and effective BIM and 3D Modeling criteria, procedures and tools in order to acquire capacity for creating, managing and optimizing an integrated project.
The Head of Architecture Department Anna Maria Giovenale, who described the workshop as "one of the most important activities of recent years", underlined the interest of the Faculty in promoting the BIM in the academic field and Prof. Eng. Marco Casini professor responsible for Solar Decathlon Middle East 2018, who held a lecture on BIM and the importance of controlling all aspects of design with technologically advanced tools.
Arch. Francesco Maria Azzopardi, who is responsible for organizing the workshop together with student representatives, Alessandro Rocchi and Silvano Sasso, explained the theme that will be developed and how the lessons and meetings will be organized. The 50 students, selected from over 260 requests received and attesting to the interest of BIM and the need to promote their academic dissemination in our country, will be followed by five tutors – Alberto Tono, Lorenzo Ranghiasci, Matteo Proia, Maurizio Giodice , Veronica Veschi – who will help them to assist them in the realization of the project theme and in the practical application of all the topics discussed during the lessons.
Arch. Riccardo Pagani, presented to the students the principles of BIM methodology and the potential of application in the field of work, focusing on current issues of Italian and European legislation, while Arch. Matteo Simione, has come into the details of modeling software by explaining the information hierarchy and working methods with BIM software.
