The Death of Drawing: Architecture in the Age of Simulation by David Scheer. Published by Routledge, June 2014.
This is a significant book at the time of widespread uncertainty and confusion in architectural theory, education and practice - Juhani Pallasmaa, architect and author of The Eyes of the Skin
In this timely and important study, David Scheer offers a lucid analysis of a dramatic, unprecedented, epistemological shift in architecture and its production - Michael Sorkin, architecture critic, Distinguished Professor of Architecture and Director of the Graduate Program in Urban Design, City College of New York
David Scheer offers a clear and unvarnished assessment of what architects have to lose and gain as we move from representative to simulated experiences, from controlling to collaborative practices, and from Euclidean to parametric/algorithmic form-making - Thomas Fisher, author of Designing to Avoid Disaster, professor of architecture and the Dean of the College of Design, University of Minnesota.

Join Dr. Scott Imlay and Dr. Durrell Rittenberg from Tecplot, Inc. for another informative show. The dramatic growth in computer power has driven an increase in both size and number of CAE simulations used in engineering and scientific analysis. The increase in number of simulation cases has revealed a gap in current post-processing analysis capabilities which were designed to analyze one simulation case at a time. Simulation Analytics software fills this gap. Simulation Analytics is the application of visualization, data management, statistics, and data mining to related collections of datasets generated by computer-aided engineering (CAE) codes. In particular, simulation analytics involves the coupled analysis of the detailed field data and the associated meta-data for a related collection of data-sets. In this talk, Dr. Imlay will discuss the nature of simulation analytics discuss its application to production and exploratory CFD calculations.
With special guest, Peter Filak – Business Development Director for Games for Business.
Using an online simulation game, Games for Business has been able to set their clients apart from their competition and have helped them strengthen their employer brand.
The simulation game engages a target audience and helps develop the image of an organization, directly reaching the target group, and boosting motivation levels. In addition, the game creates a virtual community that demonstrates an organization and its real values in an interactive, simulated environment.
Learn how you can use this strategy to set your organization apart from your competitors, and show your audience your USPs in a unique and cool way.
About Peter Filak: Peter is currently the Business Development Director and is expanding the client base of the online gamified solutions developed by Games for Business.

On tonight's show will discuss Simulation Gameplay vs Money Making game modes. Should game Modes like NBA 2K's MyTeam or Madden's Ultimate Team respect simulation fundamentals? Should fatigue, injuries, player abilities, weather conditions, etc matter when playing online? Is there a difference between done and simulation? Tune in tonight to hear our thoughts and feel free to give us a call and share your thoughts.
