6.30pm - Olivia Pearson, GHD - Computational, Generative and Automated Design

Olivia will share two international projects where GHD have leveraged the latest digital technologies to provide industry leading solutions to their clients. This includes the use of Computational Design, Generative Design, and Design Automation.

The first project will demonstrate a master planning solution for urban planning and large-scale master planning projects using InfraWorks and Civil 3D. The new workflows allow real-time testing and option development with clients, automatically creating 3D models using the predefined attribute information. This project has been previously presented at Autodesk University.

The second project will demonstrate the use of generative design using Dynamo and Fractal to inform decision making in the master planning of a site. Olivia will also share some of the suite of digital tools that GHD use during the design phase of projects.
