city 2 – Extreme Makeover
the city 2 shopping center is located in the western outskirts of copenhagen
and includes four levels of retail space surrounding a large, covered central plaza
with cinemas, restaurants, and event areas. The center was built in the 1970s and
reflects the robust and straightfor ward architecture of the time. To accommodate
a large supermarket chain, the entire interior – including all surfaces, floors,
ceilings, lighting, and interior fixtures – of one area is being upgraded.
Using Bentley Architecture, the firm has produced accurate and coordinated
project material conducive to easy modifications. The option to use the
updated project material to communicate with clients and partners with 3D
viewers and images has proved to be valuable.

Point B Design
Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, United States
the goal of this project in the suburbs of Philadelphia is to house a private
art collection in a dynamic landscape environment that responds to changes
and creates temporal associations between the interior content and exterior
environment. The main volume of the gallery will change through an emergent
system of display componentry that deploys over the lifespan of the building.
To generate a maximal set of design iterations exploring legitimate
constellations of building solutions – while maintaining highly integrated
details – the firm used GenerativeComponents. Adjustments to the design
continued all the way through the construction documents phase and the
GenerativeComponents model was used as the control for geometry output
and feedback to structural consultants and fabricators through fabrication.
