Rhino Inside Revit BSS Final Project ; )

Happy and proud of our second BSS Rhino Inside Revit Building System Specialist Chris ; )


Congratulations to our Rhino.Inside.Revit Building System Specialist Chris Thompson. His hard work and willingness to break the limits of Revit with more organic free-form leaded to this amazing final project!


“Evolutionary Dome Labs

I have been working in mass timber construction industry for the last 10 years so It was a natural decision to choose a timber type of structural system as the basis for the final project. I also wanted to lean away from a rectangle or square approach, so I did some research and really liked how I felt when examining more organic free form timber structures, such as the Centre Pompidou Metz or the Swatch HQ in Biel. So that was it, I decided to go down the path of having ‘bubble’ dome timber grid type systems.

I wanted to create merging bubble complexes with beautiful timber ribs wrapping around a dome circumference creating bright, green and spacious feeling areas. My initial grand vision was for the bubbles to be form finding in themselves using certain evolutionary techniques, such as best optimal light by exploring multiple shapes and positions. The structure would consist of timber circular ribs and timber floor plates, both horizontal and vertical systems where to be fully parametric, customizable and adaptable to the dome shapes.

The workflow consisted of working in Rhino/Grasshopper pushing the data back and forth into Revit for BIM capabilities and create a final presentation video in Twinmotion.

There has been so much that I have learnt in the last 5 months, this video only captures a glimpse. It is the change in the way I think that I am finding most valuable.  The way to approach a challenge, deconstructing and re organising it, questioning when and how certain operations should be carried out, trying to really understand what is happing in a more global way. Of course having the door blasted open at al the amazing possibilities in invaluable, I’m starting feel like how a younger version of myself felt upon discovering something new for the first time!

I look forward to applying, maintaining and furthering everything that I have started here with PAZ. ” – Chris
