Abstract
As the largest ETFE installation in North America and the first awarded LEED-Platinum transit center, the success of the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodel Center (ARTIC) is attributed to their applications of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and seamless team collaboration. Therefore, ARTIC's BIM applications can be viewed as exemplifying the current status of BIM technologies and can serve as a benchmark for future development, especially with reference to membrane structure design. With this intent, this paper presents a case study detailing ARTIC's BIM applications and design process of its ETFE roofing design. This paper then concludes with a discussion on the novel approaches and subsequent limitations of ARTIC's BIM applications, as well as the direction for future building technology development for membrane design.
