A Partnership of AIA Los Angeles and USC Architecture: BIM EDGE + BIM GAP
August 22–23, 2014
BIM GAP will feature presentations about the bridging GAPs between BIM tools (analysis, construction, facilities management, and more) and also bridging the GAPs between BIM people (contractors, architects, owners, managers, subs, consultants). Learn how professionals are dealing with these gaps towards realizing the full potential of BIM. Who do you call when you need BIM guidance? EDGE examines potential partners in working with BIM beyond your firm’s current capabilities: BIM coordinators, consultants, modeling services, others.

A B.Arch graduate of California College of the Arts, Portitz recently launched a new furniture line. Here’s the twist. The collection is made in Nicaragua from wood sourced from the country’s North Atlantic Autonomous Region, where a 2007 hurricane had felled thousands of hardwood trees.

Image via Jamie Wolfond.Today we kick off our series of interviews with young architects and designers by speaking with Jamie Wolfond. Jamie is finishing up his last year at RISD and already has a substantial CV to his name, with stints in film and in design studios to his credit. He has also designed some intriguing objects himself, which were what initially brought him to our attention. We wanted to find out what makes a young designer tick, his thoughts on design and his vision of the future. What follows is our Q-and-A with an emerging young talent about his inspirations, plans and why design is like looking for your keys.

We plan to bring you more interviews with young architects and designers down the line, so keep checking here regularly.
