Is Architecture Ready To Go Paperless
Is Architecture Ready to go paperless? Gehry Technologies and cloud-based storage service Box seems to think so.
A recent article by Nathan Hurst over at Wired Magazine uncovers Frank Gehry’s thoughts on the development of the project.
As modeling tools have gotten increasingly complex — in architecture and otherwise — they’ve become data-intense, and file storage and management has grown correspondingly difficult. Gehry Technologies’ GTeam software is the Pritzker Prize-winning architect’s attempt to streamline and manage access to different types of design files and documents, from blueprints to certificates to CAD. Box, meanwhile, is a cloud-content management and storage service with an increasing presence in the architectural, engineering, and construction industries. Gehry believes Box’s infrastructure will allow the GTeam service to reach beyond his own buildings to other architects, helping them make the same transition he’s done with his company.
