Hello Revit City,


I am writing to ask if anyone has left objects hidden within their Revit models - the equivalent of an "easter egg" in other kinds of media.  If so, could you post a screenshot in this thread along with a caption or description?


many thanks,

Nah, but I wrote a science fiction short story about it.

Here's why I asked: I am interested in the ways that BIM has transformed architectural work and departed from older, two-dimensional forms of representation.  We could say that when one draws in BIM, one is representing much more than what one sees on the screen. Each line or component is instantly reproduced in other views, and carries with it an extraordinary amount of information- more information than the draftsperson can possibly possess on their own, or that a builder would necessarily need to know (although the knowledge of the draftsperson and the demands of the builder are also changing to meet these new conditions of production).  What was formerly implied in two-dimensional drawing sets is now shown in three-dimensional models, even if these excess areas of a project are never seen- one still looks at and presents a BIM model through a series of selected two and three-dimensional views rather than an exhaustive survey of the model (please let me know if this is your experience as well). And so, my question is, what happens within these surplus, and hidden, spaces of architectural representation? Do they function like the margins of medieval illuminated manuscripts, where monks would leave illustrations and complaints to one another in periods of boredom during their long hours of transcription? There is a more established history of this kind of reflexive activity in the film and television industries- think of 30 Rock, for example, where the dynamics of the writers room become the entire premise for the show.  I suspect that these sorts of insider jokes play out in architecture as well, and that Building Information Modeling presents a new kind of venue for this discourse. This is why I have introduced this hypothesis within the "out there" section of this software forum- where else could one find out the answer to this question?
