The Secret is Out

Yes, the secret is out.  Autodesk, HP, and NVIDIA® have joined forces with Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA), CASE, CG Architect, Paul F. Aubin and Sir John Soane Museum to engage the world’s architects to help recreate Soane’s Bank of England in BIM.  As this was held under wraps until just a few weeks ago we were not able to announce the fact that RTC will have a class dedicated to this effort. Creating History with BIM: A Crowd-Sourced Reconstruction of Sir John Soane’s Bank of England.  Shaun Frazier, Design Technology Manager at RAMSA will lead the class and Paul Aubin will be on hand to assist and moderate.  The class will be held Friday morning at 10:45.

I am thrilled to have been asked to participate in Project Soane. My book Renaissance Revit explores the creation of classical architectural orders within the Revit family editor environment. For folks like myself who have an interest in the language of classical architecture or who are excited by the challenge of bringing such forms to life with our modern software tools like Revit, Project Soane is the perfect venue for such explorations!  And through the generous support of HP, a limited quantity of copies of my book Renaissance Revit will be made available to early entrants in the competition! I am very excited and can’t wait to start seeing people’s submissions!  – Paul Aubin

If you have already registered for a class it is not too late to get involved with this one.  Simply to go www.rtcevents.com and click Already Registered and modify your class selection.  Want more motivation?  The first 40 people who register will be given a color copy of Paul’s new book – Renaissance Revit – Creating Classical Architecture with Modern Software.  Maybe Paul will autograph it for you?!?

I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it!
