Описание: Welcome to the second edition of Mastering Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011, based on the Revit Architecture 2011 release. When we sat down to plan this book, we realized that in the past three years, so many have made such great advances in their use of Revit that we felt we needed to start this book from scratch and work to fill it with really solid content. We looked to serve the needs of individuals who had used Revit in the past, but wanted to take it up a notch all the way to teams that were looking for advanced content. We hope you will find that our efforts to that extent were successful. Writing a book looks easier than it truly is. It is an effort that we each have taken on beyond our day jobs in the hopes of sharing our experience and knowledge about Revit and BIM with the greater design community. We want to help make better designs and stronger document sets, and continue pushing the envelopes of what you can build. We hope you find the techniques, workflows, and processes, as well as the tips on software, useful and inspiring. We also wanted to write a book that is as much about architectural design and practice as it is about software. Architecture is a way of looking at the world and the methods that inspire creatively solving the problems of the built world. We hope you’ll agree that we’ve succeeded because the book follows real-life workflows and scenarios and is full of practical examples that show how to use Revit both inside and outside the box. The book is based on a project that is already in motion—a theoretical project for the Jenkins Music building in Kansas City. The Jenkins Music building was built at the turn of the century as a terracotta block façade building that housed the Jenkins Music store. This was one of many stores nationwide where musical instruments were made, and you could come to purchase them or take classes. The company went out of business in Kansas City, and the property was eventually sold to a developer. In the 1980s, the building was going to be torn down for a parking garage. The historic façade was saved as well as the first bay of the building. This has left Kansas City with 100′ of beautiful, historic terracotta on an 18′ deep building. The model shown in this book is a representation of the remaining building taken and made into living units. How great would it be to have an 18′ × 100′ apartment overlooking the downtown skyline?
