Women in Design - WiD Wednesday

June 13, 2018 | 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Price: Free and open to the public.
Where: Autodesk Boston at the Innovation and Design Building 1 Design Center Place, Boston MA 02210

Women in Design - WiD Wednesday

Join us to tour Autodesk's office in the Innovation and Design Building in South Boston, where Utile recently completed an 18,000 square foot fit-out for Autodesk BUILD Space Boston. Defined by massive three-foot diameter concrete columns, expansive windows along the north and south facades, and atrium views to Autodesk’s signature BUILD workshop, the design team’s goal was to maximize light and views through the deep floor plates and to provide Autodesk with a variety of flexible spaces to accommodate a wide array uses.

Designers from Utile will discuss their process and how the plan centers around a “glassy core” of meeting rooms that maintains a visual connection north-south and into the buzzing BUILD space activity below, while providing the finely-tuned acoustic and audiovisual performance needs of a high-end executive briefing center and training room. This core is surrounded by dynamic assembly spaces, including a signature round “kiva”. Learn about how the design team worked closely with the BUILD team and contractor to utilize new BIM software and CNC metal stud fabrication to fine tune the relationship between heavy concrete structure, infill walls, and the systems within.

Join us afterwards to continue the conversation and learn more about your fellow designers!
