Event Description

University of Oregon - School of Architecture and Allied Arts - Department of Architecture presents


Friday, April 20, 2012
5:30pm in 206 Lawrence Hall, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR

Scott Crawford of LMN's innovative Tech Shop has been empowering non-techie architects to explore design variations, giving lighting and energy performance feedback.  For the Cleveland Medical Mart and Convention Center, the designers "painted" facade possibilities in Photoshop that were translated to parametric window patterns.  The resulting patterns were optimized for building performance as well as aesthetic effect, then codified into Revit family members.  Textures for adjacent wall panels were 3D printed and cast to examine aggregations.  A negative was milled at full-scale for the pre-cast panels.

In the Tech Shop, the team has worked with a wide variety of architectral software for modeling, fabrication, lighting, structural, wind and energy analysis.  They even rigged up a Kinect movement sensor and projector to make a table work like an enormous iPad.  Scott has developed great communication skills by teaching at University of Washington, where he earned both a Master of Architecture and a Master of Science in Design Computing.    See more at:

Please come see his free lecture, Friday April 20 at 5:30pm in room 206 Lawrence Hall, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR.    To take his workshop on Iterative Daylight Analysis with Parametric Modeling sign up for ARCH 4/508  "Wrk GrasshoprSim Softw" (instructor of record Mark Donofrio) Saturday 9:00am-4:00pm and Sunday 9am-12:20pm, please call 541-346-4231.
