Digital Fabrication: Opportunities in AEC

Join us for a conversation exploring the future of digital fabrication and computational design in architecture – globally and locally. We are pleased to welcome four speakers covering a range of topics from academic research in the field through small scale architectural pavilions to digitally designed and fabricated large-scale buildings. Discussing things at large and at small. Register today to get involved in the Toronto computational design community, share new ideas and meet like-minded professionals.

You have likely been at the heart of many changes to infrastructure, tools and workflows to support your organizations. Since we are all now working from home we recognized that creating a digital platform to keep our conversations going and support each other during this time of transition.  Its new territory for us all.

Please join us and offer tips, ask questions and lets learn from each other.

The Women in tBIMc is a sub-group of WiB global community.  We are revolutionary leaders, risk takers and agents of change to share and discuss practical approaches for advancing women into BIM in the Canadian AECOO industry.  We promote an atmosphere for the dissemination of knowledge from leaders, employers and programs supporting these leaders and women who aspire to be in this field and lead the industry themselves.

WiB aims to provide  networking opportunities preparing women for leadership roles. Also, beyond just networking, we hope that Women in BIM  leads to connections between mentors and mentees, forging key relationships leading to successful careers.
