Building Information Modeling and the Implication for Architecture Pedagogy
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is being rapidly adopted by architects, engineers and contractors with significant, if only vaguely understood, implications for the practice of architecture. Changes in design approach, project organization, collaboration, legal and risk parameters, fabrication and construction execution are likely to be profound, as are the ramifications for pedagogy. This presentation will examine both industry context and teaching implications of BIM in the training of architects, investigate potential relationships with accreditation criteria, and propose strategies for connecting BIM, practice and teaching approaches.
