Has been combining teaching and working in the engineering and architectural fields since 2005, collaborating with different studios and companies, developing projects in Europe and South America where getting involved in computational design, prototyping and real scale mock-ups, fabrication methods and construction phases. Founded in 2015 Architechnoid, an architecture firm that provides consulting services in the intersection of architecture, design and technology; always related with contemporary means of production and fabrication. In 2017 CT Ingenieros AEC acquired his former company and at the present time, works almost exclusively as part of the production engineering team that develops Basilica Sagrada Familia.
Architect Rajesh Shinde graduated from Vivekanand Institute of Technology’s Padmabhushan Dr. Vasantdada Patil College of Architecture, Pune in 2015. He is currently pursuing his masters in Construction and Real – Estate Management from Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin, Germany and Metropolia University of applied sciences Helsinki, Finland. He is currently interning at BIM Kampus, (building Information modelling) at Tietoa Finland Oy (www.tietoa.fi) based in Helsinki, Finland. His area of research involves XR (Extended Reality), MR (Mixed Reality), VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) platform development for semantic design processes required by the AEC (Architecture, Engineering & Construction Industry). His area of research builds on the prior research in design computing and cognition, drawing upon theories and models from related areas such as photogrammetry and laser scanning, scan to BIM models, collaborative design practises such as BIG Room & CAVE (Centralised Automatic Virtual Environment), supported by information and knowledge management. He has a deep interest in developing these BIM tools and apply it to different use cases across the AEC market.

Mirrakoi has invented augmented CAD, a powerful technology for computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE). Mirrakoi provides software that simulates real-world physical contact during the 3D digital modeling process and provides augmented access to the CAD object. Mirrakoi’s technology is the result of more than 10 years of high-level mathematical research and has been awarded with an international research prize at the ‘IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (IEEE ICIP). Mirrakoi is a spin-off of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland, and is specialized in spline technology and computational geometry.
Concentration, Heat And Momentum Limited (CHAM) was founded in 1974 by Professor Brian Spalding. The company is a world leading consultancy and software house specialising in the computer simulation of fluid-flow and heat-transfer processes. RhinoCFD is the latest product in the company’s line-up and is based on the ground-breaking software PHOENICS, which pioneered commercial CFD. RhinoCFD fully integrates fluid-flow and heat-transfer capabilities directly into Rhino so users can benefit of a streamlined workflow with a minimal learning curve. It is presently used in industries ranging from architecture and aircraft design to naval, jewellery and industrial processes. RhinoCFD also has 2 subvariants called FLAIR and Marine which are optimized for the built environment and naval industries respectively.
ShapeDiver is an online platform specialized in parametric 3D. Our technology is mainly applied to create product configurators across different industries that can be integrated into almost any website.
We help companies create very flexible, adaptive 3D Product Configurators and seamlessly integrate them into their current online stores. With our technology, brands can cost-effectively display parametric 3D models of their entire catalogue in their websites.
End users enjoy a more fluid and immersive experience than with traditional images or videos, while at the same time allowing a very detailed level of product customization that might’ve been too complicated or confusing to understand before.
Varjo’s dream is a new reality
Our vision is clear: We’re revolutionizing reality.
The first big step is our Bionic Display™, which lets you see VR in human-eye resolution. It’s the technology in our Beta Prototype and it’s already here today.
Not too far down the road, we’ll change computing for good with hardware and software that will let you seamlessly merge virtual, mixed and traditional reality – all with the clarity of the human eye.
Up until now, advances in VR and XR have been an evolution. We think the time has come for a revolution.
Lands design is software for designing gardens, green spaces and landscapes in Rhino. Lands provides tools for producing 2D and 3D technical drawings of any landscaping project, as well as realistic images and virtual tours. Lands has a plant database with more than 1800 species, each one with their own technical specifications and different display modes in 3D and 2D, ready for rendering, exporting plans, and season and growth simulation.
Lands Design also provides 3D terrain modeling tools for creating terrains from contours, elevation curves, point clouds or imported from internet. There are tools for adding cuts, fills, paths, holes or calculating the volume of land movement.
