Biographical Profile

Prof. Brody is a licensed architect in Maine and Massachusetts. His private practice is focused on smaller scale residential projects. 

Accomplishments

Prof. Brody completed the textbook, Electronic Workflow for Interior Designers and Architects, in Fall 2010. In it, he outlines strategies for efficiently managing workflow between several of the most common types of software that designers use: sketch modeling, building information modeling, rendering, and photo editing. A designer must leverage the most powerful features within each type of software while avoiding electronic dead-ends, where design updates in one program do not affect the model or rendering in other software.

Paper presentation: \\\"Drawing Conclusions: Best Practices for Design Rendering,\\\" at the Constructed Environment conference in Vancouver, BC, in October 2012.
