Early-Stage Design Simulation for Architects with Zaha Hadid
December 16, 2020
Zaha Hadid is an internationally renowned and prestigious architecture firm, pushing the boundaries of design and sustainability. They have completed almost 1000 projects in 44 countries and have worked on some of the most iconic and award-winning buildings in the world.
SimScale is a cloud-based simulation tool for modeling and simulating the built environment. Some of our most common customer use cases include using SimScale to simulate the impacts of wind and climate on buildings and masterplans.
This webinar will showcase how Zaha Hadid Architects are using SimScale to evaluate the climate impacts on their designs, with a focus on early-stage design simulation on the cloud. Our guest speaker, Carlos Bausa Martinez from Zaha Hadid Architects, is the Sustainability Team Lead and responsible for environmental modeling within the practice.
No prior knowledge or software is required to join this webinar. All participants can get access to SimScale with all the required simulation features by creating a Community account on our website. If you are unable to attend the live session, we would still encourage you to register to receive the recording.
Sustainability Team Lead
Carlos Bausa is currently the Sustainability Team Lead in Zaha Hadid Architects and was Former Associate Environmental Design Analyst at the Specialist Modelling Group within Foster and Partners, a company he was part of for half a decade.
Over the time he has been in ZHA, he's been in charge of setting up an in-house team to work on merging computational design methods and the Environmental Simulation tools. Its main focus has been to expand the company agenda looking at new hardware and software tools, and defining new “Architectural Green Job roles' ', creating opportunities for employees with environmental and sustainability background, combined with advanced 3D modelling skills.
Carlos and his team are defining news strategies to optimize the project development workflows, to be able to deliver energy-efficient and sustainable designs in a unified way, across the practice. Their efforts are also focused on Designers and Team Leaders to be aware of the environmental impact of their design decisions, from the early stages, thus making it easier to find solutions that could meet the highest standards of comfort and sustainability.
Enterprise Account Manager
Experienced in simulation, Naghman has a PhD in building simulation and is Secretary of the CIBSE Building Simulation Group (UK). He is part of the business development team at SimScale.
“We are really impressed with the SimScale platform. Thanks to the platform’s ease of use, the professional support of SimScale engineers and the perfect communication with them, we were able to efficiently perform simulations and sort out our design problems. It’s hard to imagine how much physical prototyping time and measures we saved thanks to virtual prototyping.”
“When I started with SimScale, I knew from my previous experience how simulations are structured and work, but I had forgotten some details over the years. The great tutorials, documentation, and personal conversations with support have brought me up to date within 2 months of using SimScale. I am now well versed and use SimScale even with smaller problems to confirm my pre-calculations and to quickly compare design studies.”
SimScale is the world’s first production-ready SaaS application for engineering simulation! We dream of a future where engineers are able to optimize their designs better and faster. We want to be the destination for designers across the globe, by providing a cloud-based simulation tool, educational hub, and collaborative community of innovators. Learn more about SimScale.
