Walt Disney Imagineering is the unique, creative force behind Walt Disney Parks and Resorts that imagines, designs and builds all Disney theme parks, resorts, attractions, cruise ships, real estate developments, and regional entertainment venues worldwide. Imagineering’s unique strength comes from the dynamic global team of creative and technical professionals building on the Disney legacy of storytelling to pioneer new forms of entertainment through technical innovation and creativity. This lecture will present aspects of WDI’s digital delivery process, encompassing BIM, Virtual Design and Construction, and alternative project procurement models to realize WDI’s projects, and will feature recent projects for the expansion of Disney’s California Adventure.
The Los Angeles Design Technology Forum is a collective organization representing a wide cross-section of architecture and engineering firms and academic institutions around the Los Angeles basin. It serves to increase awareness of technological innovations in design and construction, and to foster their application throughout the Los Angeles design community. By connecting a diverse audience of designers, engineers, builders and owners who have widely varying conceptions of technology in their work, we hope to create new opportunities for efficiency and creativity.
The Los Angeles Design Technology Forum is coordinated by Marty Doscher, Reg Prentice, Dennis Shelden, Randy Jefferson, and Kurt Komraus.
