Digital Building Design
Digital building design applications are becoming common design and management tools within the architecture and construction industries in Hong Kong.
With the rapid development in digital technology, new software are replacing the traditional way of designing and managing buildings; methods which are technology restrictive and costly in time and personnel.
We offer award-bearing and short courses in Building Information Modeling (BIM), as well as other digital building design software such as Rhinoceros to equip students with the knowledge and skill for application in design and management of buildings.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) has become the must-know vocabulary within the construction industry. This programme will equip participants with the necessary knowledge and skills of BIM application. The focus of the programme will be on the strategic and managerial side of this tool.
This programme is suitable for professionals who will have a need in planning, overseeing or managing a multi-discipline BIM team in their daily job. The programme will be delivered in the form of lectures, case studies and group exercises.
The programme aims to teach the intermediate and advanced techniques of using Rhinoceros in the production of 3-D models using NURBS geometry.
* This programme is on the pre-approved list of the Construction Innovation and Technology Fund (CITF).
In todays world of 3-dimensional design, Rhinoceros 3D is one of the most in demand digital tools in any workflow from design to fabrication.
During this Introduction to Rhinoceros course, students will learn about surface modeling and discuss general modeling relating specifically to Rhino 3D software, creating and editing 3D NURBS curves and surfaces.
Non-standard Architectures are increasingly important as design language.
Architectural firms nowadays, seek more staff who engage on higher level of experimental design.
In the Architecture Free From Lab, you will learn about free-form modelling - also know as organic architecture - and how to apply it in an academic design exercise.
This knowledge and understanding of design processes and techniques, will allow you to take your own concept ideas and then, explore and develop them into a fully articulated industry equivalent design.
