Rehash: Project Vasari 2.0 is here!

La Latino - Green Series No.2Image by edwinguerra via Flickr

Project Vasari 2.0 was released yesterday (perhaps in honour of Victoria Day?) If you have not heard about it, Project Vasari is essentially a conceptual design tool based on the Revit platform that was first released in November of last year. It allows designers to explore green building aspects like solar radiation, conceptual energy analysis and even keeps track of alternatives and respective floor areas. From my point of view, the major updates of this release are:

  • Revit 2012 compatibility
  • Ability to drop in a correctly scaled/oriented satellite images with a few clicks (this is a great improvement for incorporate neighbouring buildings)
  • Wiki help access
  • Expiration date of December 31st (which means all the professors hoping to use this in their classes can now rest calmly)

The following videos from Autodesk provide more detail. The first one is set to techno music, because apparently this music is directly related to green buildings 😉
