Practicing ArchitectureKnowledge Communities
The AIA Technology in Architectural Practice Knowledge Community (TAP) serves as a resource for AIA members, the profession, and the public in the deployment of computer technology in the practice of architecture. Technology in Architectural Practice monitors the development of computer technology and its impact on architecture practice and the entire building life cycle, including design, construction, facility management, and retirement or reuse.

TAP Update on BIM for Design: Latest Tools and Trends
The San Francisco Digital Design Breakfast Club is an informal group of local AEC professionals who meet once a month to discuss the use of digital technologies in design and construction, address philosophical questions posed by those technologies, and share stories about our experiences with them. Eleven members of the group compiled a report from the trenches, a mosaic of how-to’s and lessons learned on BIM and IPD. This was a rapid-fire presentation in the pecha-kecha format: each presenter has 7 minutes to speak about 20 slides for approximately 20 seconds each. See videos and PPTs of each presentation.
