Artist and Avanto Architects Transform Chapel Design With Hand Painted GKD Metal Mesh

http://bit.ly/2fVs0TD

The Chapel of St. Lawrence in Vantaa, Finland is a beautiful example of architecture’s ability to showcase a journey independently of the project’s articulated message. Two young architects who immediately gained international recognition for their intelligible designs started the responsible firm in 2004. Avanto Architects’ design for the chapel focused on the Christian concept of ‘the Path,’ in which the journey to eternity is experienced.

http://bit.ly/2fqOvm5

GKD Metal Fabrics has transformed their attachment systems and product catalog with Autodesk® Seek into 3-D Building Information Modeling Files (BIM) and two-dimensional drawings.

"With the use of BIM modeling, designers make more informed design decisions and they build more efficiently and cost effectively," Autodesk® explains. Additionally, they have the ability to maintain their buildings more easily. The intelligence data provided by BIM modeling enables users in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), to plan, design, construct, and manage their buildings.
