Gehry Technologies, Los Angeles, CA, US, Consultant

Model selected parts of the buildings based on design intents. Automating modeling process and mass customization. Optimizing designed geometries for pricing and fabrication.

Battersea Power station, London, England:
When I was in Gehry Technology, I had participated in Battersea Power Station, Foundation LUMA (NBL), and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. In Battersea project, I worked with design team to form design surfaces in CATIA/Digital Project and further worked with architecture team to document building through Revit model. I had setup an automatic bi-directional translation between CATIA and Revit model to translate facade elements such as windows and winter gardens that are relative to interior space organization and views. I had solved some of the complex technical facades problem through parametric model such as thermal breaks, slab edge, insulation around windows, backup wall options. I also provided contractors in biding stage with set of excel documents containing families of mold for GFRC panels to reduce pricing bids.

Guggenheim Abu Dhabi:
Modeling Shards’ Nodes for pricing calculation. Organizing the model (products) and checking the ID for master model packaging, formal model that has been send to contractors for biding.
