The challenge is to design a school campus in Mumbai using the new Autodesk FormIt iPad App. This slightly primitive but full of potential school campus, dubbed FormIt University, will consist of four classroom buildings, a lecture hall, a gym, an administration building, and parking. Each building/program must be within the required square footage requirements given below. Floor heights will not be assumed, so therefore they must be set for each mass/building/support space for judges to check for total floor area requirements. The campus is also wanting to stand out above the rest and desires a distinctive landmark. The design of the landmark is completely open to interpretation, but must be separate from any other building and distinctly different.
The FormIt mobile app was just released at Autodesk University in November and is the first of its kind. FormIt helps you capture building design concepts digitally anytime, anywhere ideas strike. Use real-world site information to help create forms in context and support early design decisions with real building data. Experience a continuous Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow by synchronizing designs in the cloud for further refinement using Autodesk Revit software products and other applications.
- Create compelling and beautiful architectural design concepts and form creation.
- Remain within defined Program area requirements.
- Maximize tool set utilization. (Special attention will be given to those who take advantage of all the tools available in FormIt)
