On January 18th, 12:00 pm PST, SFCDUG welcomes Luca Giaramidaro and Guangyue Cao from Perkins+Will. This month’s meeting will be hosted at the AIA 130 Sutter St # 600, San Francisco, CA 94104Featured Presentation:

Urban Development Capacity: design process, workflow, and tools

Assessment of the development potential within the existing urban fabric requires designers to efficiently manage and analyze large sets of spatial and geographical data. What tools and processes can be used to effectively assess the potential development capacity of multiple opportunity sites?

Using the BART Phase II Corridor in San Jose as a case study, the presentation will illustrate the design process, workflow, and tools adopted for transit-oriented development analysis. With a combination of GIS, Excel, Grasshopper and machine learning, the Perkins+Will team successfully employed an iterative design process to rapidly identify, measure, and assess multiple development scenarios.

Before moving to the US, Luca obtained his Doctorate degree in Sustainable Design from Sapienza University of Rome.
