In this virtual talk, representatives from French design software brand Dassault Systèmes and London architecture practice Waugh Thistleton discuss the convergence of the fast-growing fields of virtual twin technology and the use of mass timber as a building material.
The panel, which is titled How Virtual Mass Timber Extends and Improves Real Mass Timber, explores the emerging concept of virtual twins in the context of the use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) in architecture and construction.
Virtual twins are digital representations of physical objects or processes, like buildings, that serve as their real-time digital counterparts.
Dassault Systèmes is represented on the panel by its director of architecture, engineering and construction Jerry Jackson, alongside cloud solution consultant Nuri Miller. Senior associate at Waugh Thistleton Kirsten Haggart also appears on the panel to discuss her firm’s pioneering use of CLT.
How Virtual Mass Timber Extends and Improves Real Mass Timber takes place online at 4:00 pm BST on 20 May 2021.
