PA Talks Episode 51 is now available. In this episode, we met with Tore Banke; he joined BIG in 2014 as a Computational Design Specialist in building performance simulation. Tore’s vast experience in parametric software development allows him to customize digital toolsets and workflows in BIGs projects. Tore’s knowledge enables us to integrate building performance as part of our concept design and handle design problems and geometries of great complexity. Tore has performed a wide range of building simulations e.g. energy-, solar radiation-, wind-, daylight-, and artificial lighting simulations on several BIGs key projects.
In the autumn of 2013, Tore Banke defended his Ph.D. dissertation in parametric design, done in collaboration with CITA (Center for IT and Architecture) at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, and 3XN Architects. Through his Ph.D., Tore was closely involved in many building projects at 3XN, where he led the development of building performance simulations and parametric tool development. Besides working at BIG, Tore teaches at the CITA. Studio Masters Program specializes in new computational tools and processes at the Royal Danish Academy School of Architecture.
In the PA Talks interview series, PA’s founder and creative director, Hamid Hassanzadeh, sits down with leading architects and designers to discuss their lives, careers, and visions for the future.
