Bauhaus Summer School Project

 

The Bauhaus Summer School is the international summer programme of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Each year in August we welcome prospective students, undergraduates as well as graduate students from all over the world. Be one of more than 300 aspiring people and broaden your academic and cultural horizon at one of our summer courses. Further informations can be found here.

2019 - BIM in Engineering Design

Project group in the Student Design Studio

At this year's Summer School, the ITD Chair again supervised the "BIM in Engineering Design" project. Eight participants from different countries worked on different BIM use cases on the basis of an important milestone of the Bauhaus era, the Haus am Horn. The project group first developed a 3D model in Autodesk Revit based on historical plans of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and then carried out a structural analysis in Robot. At the same time, the students drew up a construction schedule and a bill of quantities and linked this information with the 3D model in DesiteMD Pro. To give the model the finishing touches, the group created suitable furniture in Sketchup and combined everything into a coordination model. Using Enscape and a set of VR glasses, the students were able to view their model in virtual reality and create some expressive renderings.

A case-study BIM model of the historical building "Haus am Horn" was created. "Haus am Horn" is the first building based on Bauhaus design principles, which revolutionized 20th century architectural thinking and practice. The building was based on the design of Georg Muche, a painter and a teacher at the Bauhaus school. The current paper presents the work flow behind the creation of the BIM model of an existing single family masonry house. A step-by-step description behind the creation of the model is provided starting from extraction of relevant data, definitions in a Revit model, transfer and calculations in Robot, Bill of Quantity preparation in Desite MD and visualization. The conclusion of the paper is to discuss the issues that arise during the creation of the model and the interaction within the project team.

 

2018 - BIM in Engineering Design

Project group in the Student Design Studio

As part of the Bauhaus Summer School, the chair of Intelligent Technical Design offers the project "Building Information Modeling (BIM) in Engineering Design".

The topics are: Geometric and parametric modelling (B-Rep, CSG), Object-oriented modelling (EXPRESS, UML), Process modelling (BPMN), Interoperability and collaboration concepts (IFC, IDM, BCF, etc.), BIM based design, analyses and visualisation (3D/4D BIM, Structures, Energy).

The final paper briefly presents a building information modelling (BIM) implementation in the engineering design of an existing Bauhaus University building, the Digital Bauhaus Lab in Weimar, Germany. The project work has been performed based on (1) architectural design using available technical documentation, (2) structural analysis, in which the structural elements and loads were defined, (3) construction management, in which the work schedule, the revision of all phases and the 4D model to visualize the intended construction process were defined and (4) facility management, in which the 3D visualization for the occupancy of the building was created. Four types of software were used, depending on the working phase, Revit, Robot, Microsoft Project and desiteMD. In order to overcome the design collaboration problems, collaboration with other colleagues and the availability of information were of crucial importance for continuous and accurate work.
