Randall breaks the news that Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) are adding Gehry Technologies' Digital Project to their software portfolio.
I met Darren Rizza in Seoul earlier this year after his presentation on “Pioneering Process Change” about the impact of BIM on the design process. While that focused on The Freedom Tower (and Revit) he detailed SOM’s BIM history and how they apply a variety of BIM technologies to projects, even to the extent developing their own:
“Today SOM deploy a mix of these applications and technologies, from AES to Revit, depending on the project demand and team resources”
(to quote myself!)
It will be interesting to see how Digital Project fits into the SOM platform mix and where it’s applied.
