SmartGeometry (SG) is a non-profit organization focusing on the use of the computer as an intelligent design aid in Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC). It encourages collaboration between practicing AEC professionals, academics and students using computational and parametric software tools.
Group information and activities
SG hosts annual workshops and conferences on the use of advanced modeling tools and new design methodologies in architecture. Participants come from some of the world's leading architectural and engineering practices (such as Arup, Buro Happold, Foster + Partners, Grimshaw Architects and KPF) and educational institutions (including MIT, Architectural Association, The Bartlett, University of Bath and Delft University of Technology).
GenerativeComponents (or "GC") is a commercial software product by Bentley Systems, brought to the market after a lengthy testing cycle by a dedicated user community with SG members in its core. This community provided key input as Bentley shaped the product from its conception - and continues to play an important role in informing its future. GC is the primary software used at SmartGeometry Workshops - however it is important to note that the SmartGeometry Group is not a GenerativeComponents user group.
