The Weekly show, Jan 28, 2021: Generative design tools for feasibility studies, and landscape design trends in the built environment

This week on The Weekly show, BD+C editors speak with AEC industry leaders from Studio-MLA and TestFit about: 
• Landscape design trends in the built environment
• How AEC teams and real estate developers can improve real estate feasibility studies with real-time generative design

 

 

THE WEEKLY SHOW HIGHLIGHTS FOR JANUARY 28, 2021

BD+C's Group Director Tony Mancini runs down the highlights from this week's show.

 

 

 

SEGMENT #1

Landscape design trends in the built environment
BD+C Senior Editor John Caulfield interviews Mia Lehrer, Founder and President of Studio-MLA, a landscape architect in Los Angeles for 35 years. Lehrer discusses the growing importance of landscape design and sustainability to the built environment, and how developer attitudes toward landscape design have changed. She also shares several examples of her firm's recent work that include SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.

 

 

 

SEGMENT #2

Using generative design to streamline feasibility studies in real estate
BD+C's David Barista talks with Clifton Harness, Founder and CEO of TestFit, about how multifamily housing developers and design teams are utilizing real-time generative design to speed and improve the often-onerous feasibility study process. TestFit has been used by more than 150 architectural firms, real estate developers, and general contractors to rapidly review building configuration scenarios to identify designs that will best "pencil out" for the owner/developer. “The ratio of buildings designed to buildings actually built is currently at about 20:1. TestFit is creating more efficiency and less wasted opportunity costs on feasibility studies," said Harness.
