Black Spectacles is hosting Digital Design Workshops, exclusively for AIAS Chapters. The workshops can be used as a great recruitment or fund-raising tool for your AIAS chapter, as well as a tremendous learning experience.

The Level 1 workshops will focus on beginner architecture software skills, applicable to the conceptual and schematic design phases in Vray for 3ds Max, Revit 2017, and Rhino 5 & Grasshopper. Choose any 1 of the 3 workshops and broadcast it to your entire chapter for just $100.

In each session, Black Spectacles will highlight what is unique about the software & where it is most powerful so you can leverage its power in your own work.  We’ll also spend some time considering useful workflows between various software.

Who: The workshops are taught by practicing architects (not trainers) who are working at some of the world’s most highly respected firms – HKS,  Rockwell Group, and SOM – and use these tools on a daily basis.

When: Saturday, September 24th, 2016, 9am – 1pm Central Time
The deadline to register is Friday, September 9th.

Where: Each of the workshops can be attended online via GoToWebinar.  Registrants for the online session will receive login details prior to the date of the workshops.
