Kengo Kuma & Associates (KKAA) took the decision to design the new, recently opened, V&A Museum in Dundee, (the grey, angular, layered building which juts out over the river Tay), using Dassault Systemes’ next generation BIM Level 3 technology – 3DEXPERIENCE.
The Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology and 3D collaboration tools that have made their way into the architectural design world are pointing us toward a renewed focus on materials,” Kengo Kuma, architect of V&A Dundee, said
“With computers, we can dream up any architectural space we want and convert ideas into actual drawings.”
As an On-Cloud application, it meant that KKAA could create and share design information across the design and construction partners smoothly. All collaborators could assess design and construction information in real time knowing that all information was current.
Kengo Kuma, the Japanese architect with a body of work that surpasses national boundaries, has made a name for himself with his innovative use of shapes, unique creative voice, and focus on organic materials like wood and bamboo. From Kuma’s perspective, computerized architecture plays a vital role in making that vision a reality.
“My inspiration always starts from the place where the project will be. .. I visited Scotland many times .. and I’m truly in love with the Scottish landscape and nature.” Kengo Kuma
