Event Details

Black Spectacles Live, Level 1 Digital Design Workshops

Architecture Software Crash Course

Instructor: Jorge Barrero, Gensler

Working from partially built models, you will (very quickly) build the Stahl house in Revit, AutoCAD, SketchUp, Rhino, Grasshopper & 3ds Max.

Learn the sweet spot: Through this process of building 3d models in different software, you will learn what the sweet spots and limitations are for each tool.  You’ll develop orthogonal and 3-d drawings in each software along the way. 

Workflow focus: Then you’ll bring those drawings into Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign to develop an understanding of the most effective workflow for generating digital drawings.
