Demonstrator parametric age 2020 the construction 2011 where developed into the construction industry? What technologies and processes we will use and what are the consequences pull global trends with regard to creation of construction and real estate after himself? With the leading topics sustainable build, generation accessible, research & innovation as well as education and training shows the world’s largest exhibition for architects and engineers from 17 to 22 January 2011 in Munich future trends and solutions for building the future. Intelligent plan sustainably in the subject block”think ahead shows the Fraunhofer IAO at the booth of the Fraunhofer alliance building his planning vision for building the future in the framework of the innovation network FUCON – future construction”has been created. This vision provides a fully digitized and consistent chain of process in which all relevant planning information – from the production of components at the factory to the Assembly recorded in the site – and in the planning software in Form parameter catalogs are integrated. In the FUCON demonstrator, this is 2011 live experience on the construction: turn the visitors even on the set screws of the Scheduler in a virtual reality environment and see directly what effect that has. The parametric design collects building systems from many networked design quantities according to the understanding of the Fraunhofer IAO. All levels of information of material properties on production specifications up to the urban context are thereby connected to each other, so that the change of a parameter accordingly affects all other dependent areas.
The early integration of production, execution and parameters of use of allows to create different design variants, visually check and on an optimum and model. The building model can be changed flexibly so according to the requirements in its properties, without unforeseen cost increases occur or pre-defined planning goals are missed. The parametric is demonstrator in collaboration with Aedas. R & D developed and represents a current research focus of the innovation network FUCON. Together with numerous partners from the construction sector the Fraunhofer IAO in the joint research project FUCON research since 2007 methods and strategies for a more efficient and future-oriented value chain in construction. Through the cooperation and interdisciplinary exchange within the network, trend-setting strategies and concepts are developed and implemented for the construction of the future.
