Computational Community Leader
Kayleigh Houde is the global Computational Community Leader at Buro Happold, where she is responsible for developing visual programming and coding skills and sharing that knowledge with the wider global computational community.
Deeply interested in building information modelling (BIM), computational tool development and design visualization, she led the Building and Habitats Object Model (BHoM), a coding project initially designed by Buro Happold, and which is now an open-source project. She also currently organizes Buro Happold’s global Hackademies where staff explore the available computational tools and impacts on our projects and people.
With a background in architectural engineering and HVAC design, Kayleigh has presented her cutting-edge work at multiple conferences across the US such as Autodesk and AIA New York. She was also part of the project team that won the Autodesk Excellence Award for Brown University’s Engineering Research Center, which was completed through an Integrated Project Delivery method.
