Innovative systems for the redevelopment of historical buildings: BIM application

Risultato della ricerca: Conference contribution


During the last years the building construction has been characterized by a deep transformation due to the use of Information Technologies that are changing the way of life, work, production and exchange information (BIM). The BIM (Building information modeling) overcomes limits of the traditional organization of the design activity, in which specialized technicians work in sequential steps to elaborate the project. Its use has increased as tool for the control and management of the architectural project for both new buildings and for the redevelopment of existing ones. This paper will present the results of a study developed on the technological, economic and procedural advantages that can be obtained from the application of BIM method for the redevelopment of historic buildings using innovative shells realized with advanced computerized technologies. The work has been organized in different phases. During the first phase, the main potentials of BIM were identified through the wide selection of commercial software applied to the redevelopment of emblematic historical buildings, then the result of this phase has been used to the experimentation of complex shapes developed for a study case in which constructive, productive and adaptive aspects of the shape have been optimized. The aim was to demonstrate how it is possible, through the definition of different parameters, optimize the shape of the envelope in order to adapt in different condition, obtaining the least number of different constructive elements, minimizing the weight of the whole structure.
