Our methodology is founded on rigorous analysis that informs contextual design solutions.
Research is a key design driver for BDP Pattern. We approach each project from first principles by understanding what makes a place unique: local culture, climate, urban design, and natural systems.
3D and parametric modelling tools are at the centre of our design process, we use them to develop design concepts before evaluating them through simulation and testing software. We write bespoke-written algorithmic definitions and parametric scripts to design the complex geometry forms required to deliver iconic, high performing stadia and arenas. Our in-house Virtual Reality studio, with 3D printing and rapid-prototyping facilities allow us to physically test our digital models, and feed the results back into the design.
Our studios are welcoming and creative spaces, where everyone in the team shares their skills and ideas to realise innovative designs. Our processes are highly collaborative, and we work closely with our clients and project partners to develop integrated multi-disciplinary design solutions. We are also industry leaders in BIM, and develop our designs in a detailed BIM environment that allows full inter-disciplinary integration for 4, 5, and 6D BIM (i.e. cost, time, and facilities management). We are a BIM Level 2 accredited architectural practice.
In all stages of a project, we are committed to delivering high-quality design that is innovative, modern, and of its place.
