After 2,5 weeks relaxing with the family, eating (a lot!) and not launching Revit (or Windows) even once, I’m really looking forward to going back to work and to all the new adventures which 2014 is bringing us. 2013 was a very intense year for me, as it turned out to be a lot busier than expected. However, I made it through and now looking back (well-rested and motivated) I must say it’s been a really good year! I learned a lot concerning Revit MEP and MEP families (more than any architect would ever want to!) and it’s been really fun.
Also, I got the chance to attend the RTC EUR in Delft, which was truly inspiring and where I met many interesting people!
Towards the end of the year, I started getting more involved with Dynamo, which is really a great tool – I’ ve always been very fond of parametric design, Rhino & Co. The fact that now we have the possibility to use visual scripting methods directly in Revit / Vasari with Dynamo is simply great – and you can watch Dynamo develop with every new version at an incredible speed!
Originally, I planned to play around with Dynamo during the holidays, to blog about this and that, but I really needed a rest – so I resisted and just enjoyed the spare time with my friends & family, and yeah eventually i redesigned this blog in a moment of weakness! Blame it on my architectural background, we just need to redesign something every now and then! 🙂
Anyway, I’m not a big fan of New Year resolutions – I think if you want to do or change something, you can do it at every time of the year. But of course we all have goals and expectations for 2014. Mine are avoiding anger about things I can’t change anyway, getting deeper into Dynamo and making some crazy stuff with it and of course getting a chance to visit the RTC EUR again – pretty modest, or? 😉
Last but not least, these days I stumbled upon a really inspiring quote in a magazine, which I want to share with you because it really hits the nail on the head: there’s no greater luck than having a job that you love and that makes you look forward to go back to after the holidays!
