Evolving Modes of R+D in Practice

LMN partner Stephen Van Dyck and LMN Tech Studio’s Scott Crawford presented at the AEC Technology Symposium put on by Thornton Tomasetti in New York City, September 25, 2015.

Summary
With ever increasing demands on schedule, budget and design quality, the future of project delivery is dependent upon a robust and nimble digital process.  Over the past six years, LMN Tech Studio –the research and development lab embedded within LMN Architects– has been developing customized digital and physical processes to advance the state of project delivery and build a more cohesive and collaborative exchange for project stakeholders.  This talk will examine how a broad range of project work has led to a variety of innovative approaches, where emerging computational solutions have optimized the design and fabrication of complex architectural assemblies.
