Im designing a museum and trying to draw it in revit. its got a lot of curved flores ala Bjarke Ingles Group (BIG) and im having a lot of trouble making simple and nice models in revit without importing an uneditable geometry from Rhino.

Here is a picture of a "revit sketch" that I did to show kind of how I want the geometry. Is there a way to use revit to create flowing geometries that curve around and ascend/decend simultaniously?

 

Thanks, Galen

you need to get into Revit's conceptual massing environment; which then then be importing into your construction model,

Absolute is right -- You can create conceptual masses, which are much more organic than any conventional tools such as sweeps or extrusions. 

 

But then, the purpose of these conceptual masses is that many basic revit objects like walls, floors, and roofs can be "applied to face" and will morph to match these organic forms while still behaving somewhat normally for their category...

 

Conceptual massing is a little frustrating at first. 

 

It looks like you would particularly enjoy curtain walls applied by face.  Those are fun.
