BIM in Small-Scale Sustainable Design

My book, BIM in Small-Scale Sustainable Design, recently became available at Amazon, and should be out in late November. I discuss in detail how building information modeling can effectively be used by small and medium-sized architecture firms to design more sustainable buildings.

About François Lévy

Registered Texas architect, former university lecturer and researcher, CAD/BIM consultant and trainer. I hold an M.Arch as well as an MS in architectural engineering from the University of Texas at Austin; I've taught architecture courses there. I have been practicing since 1993, and established my own firm in 1997. I design buildings that capture the imagination, express regional beauty and a sense of place, and touch lightly on the earth. My projects reflect their cultural and geographical context, are accessible and comprehensible to the user, relevant to their surroundings, and contribute to a sense of place rather than obeying a preconceived architectural agenda. All my work—whether in teaching, research, or architecture—investigates the intersection of design, technology, and sustainability. I am particularly passionate about working collaboratively to create projects that eloquently express how we use and conserve energy and water, and inhabit the land. My architectural projects have attracted regional and national press, including Dwell Magazine and HGTV. My residential architectural work includes projects up to 10,000 SF, with project budgets up to $2M. Nonresidential work has included collaboration with other firms on commercial office buildings, school projects, and public infrastructure. In addition to leading Vectorworks seminars to architects for over a decade, I have presented and lectured widely on CAD and BIM. My current areas of research interest are sustainable architecture, BIM, cooling through passive ventilation, and space architecture, on which I have presented at international conferences. Specialties: Sustainable architecture, BIM (building information modeling), CAD, space architecture

    Will there be an iBook version. If so when can we expect it?

    • Hi Christiaan,

      Funny how Apple as changed the meaning of iBook. There is already an e-book version available at Amazon:

      The print copy at Amazon is here:

      Amazon Kindle editions are readable on more than just Kindles; there’s a free desktop and iOS Kindle reader for both the iPhone and iPad.

      As for an iBook edition proper, that’s up to the publisher (Wiley) and I don’t know what their plans are for that format. I’ll look into it.

      François
