The Technologist


NVIDIA/Omniverse, London

In Conversation with Jan Bunge
Topic: Convergence— The Future is Now!

Cobus Bothma, from NVIDIA Omniverse, and Jan Bunge, from Squint/Opera, will discuss how the convergence of real-time technologies and techniques is radically changing the way we design, communicate and deliver projects in the built environment. These techniques allow collaborating design partners to contribute to a central federated 3D model from their current workflow, that anyone can 'inhabit' and use to clarify design intent, test hypotheses and make more informed decisions before construction.

Cobus Bothma is a passionate designer and technologist working at NVIDIA on the Omniverse Platform for the AECO industries. With a background in Product and Architectural design and visualisation, he specialises in design computation, simulation, and the democratisation of design and visualisation compute.

Prior to NVIDIA, he was the Director of Applied Research at Kohn Pedersen Fox, a global architectural firm. His work included the design of large-scale architectural projects, developing design functions, and progressing technology adoption for advancing the design and construction process
