Since 2016, the Urban Seismic Risk: Prevention and Reconstruction research unit at Sapienza University of Rome have been investigating a double BIM (Building Information Modelling) prevention and reconstruction path connected to natural disasters. Using Assessment Reconstruction Information Modelling, researchers at the unit are investigating how villages – made up of vernacular buildings - can join a BIM procedure.
In this lecture, Prof Tommaso Empler and PhD student Adriana Caldarone will discuss the ‘data fusion' of different disciplines such as surveying, urban planning, restoration, design, and history. They will compare different cultures and research fields to find common denominators, and explore where the research and professional world meet, how data should be organised, and local regulations.
Prof. Tommaso Empler and PhD student Adriana Caldarone work for the Department of History, Representation and Restoration of Architecture at Sapienza University of Rome.
The department focuses on:
- History of architecture - including the study of historiographic theories and methods, single historical buildings, cities, smaller towns and landscapes
- Drawing - including representation methods, the history of representation, the latest architectural and territorial representation and survey techniques, graphics, and design
- Restoration - including theories and methods of conservative restoration, the elaboration of conservation and restoration projects, the consolidation of surfaces, and structural consolidation.
Interdisciplinary research topics are ICT, Seismic Risk, BIM-HBIM-ARIM.
