ArchiCAD Training Course

Objectives

The Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP) will hold the 3rd edition of the Continuing Training Courses “Training in Revit” and “Training in ArchiCAD” (2 ECTS credits), from 4 to 8 November 2019. The 5 classes will happen in FAUP, with a total 18.5 hours of contact. The application period will run from 16 September to 10 October 2019.

Drawing supports and tools are decisive factors for the design, development and communication of the architecture project. With the introduction of the computer in the design process, new challenges and opportunities arise, not only from their specific potentialities, but also from their relationship and distinction with traditional analogue processes, such as drawing by hand.


As an introduction to the digital condition for the development of the architectural design process, the objectives of this course are:

  • Study the fundamentals of 2D and 3D digital design and modeling using a BIM computer application;
  • Acquire introductory techniques for an integral development of the architecture project in Revit and ArchiCAD;
  • Explore associated communication processes through the production of communication images, and the preparation and printing of sheets/panels;
  • Promote the complementary relationship between digital and manual design processes.

Coordinated by the architects and lecturers João Pedro Xavier and José Pedro Sousa, the Continuing Training Courses 'Training in Revit’ and 'Training in ArchiCAD' arise from the relevant relationship between the computer and the design processes in architecture, addressed in courses such as the Advanced Studies Course in Digital Architecture organized between FAUP and ISCTE-IUL, or as the Constructive Geometry and Computer Aided Design classes, from the Integrated Master in Architecture of FAUP. Despite being independent courses, they will happen in the same days and with common exercises and learning topics.

For this edition the teaching staff of these Courses will be comprised by the architects José Pedro Sousa, Pedro de Azambuja Varela and Bruno Moreira.

Professional Abilities

With these Continuing Training Courses we intend to transmit the knowledge required for the elaboration of architectural models and drawings through the use of Revit and/or ArchiCAD software. This kind of software will be used in its BIM capability in which from a three-dimensional model of the building it’s possible to generate plans, sections and elevations, as well as other elements related to an architectural project.

With the frequency of the Continuing Training Courses in Revit and ArchiCAD it is intended for the student to be able to:

  • Develop a three-dimensional thinking of the architectural design in close relation with its bi and three-dimensional communication tools;
  • Develop architectural design and representation skills through the use of digital tools;
  • Use the computer to design and represent design at the level of a virtual building;
  • Understand and use the basic principles of operation of a BIM application in the parametric modeling of the virtual building;
  • Produce an articulate, coordinated and expressive set of architectural design drawings.

Information

The Courses are directed for students of the University of Porto interested in the subject, students of Architecture, other architects and building industry professionals, and the public in general. The frequency of the course - Revit or ArchiCAD - has a cost of 100¤ for students, teachers and non-teaching staff at U. Porto; 150¤ for students outside U. Porto; and 180¤ for the remaining situations. The students enrolled in one of the courses of this first edition can enroll in the other course with a discount of 20¤ (from the first edition cost) during the second edition, thus obtaining training in Revit and ArchiCAD, two of the most used BIM applications in the architecture market.
