How to write a history of BIM from an epistemological point of view?

Februar 9, 2017

From the presentation sheets

I’ve presented my research of the historical development of BIM at the 2nd colloquium on the history and political critique of architecture at the Politecnico Milano. It was a great get together again, my talk on the other hand went not quite that well^^. There really seems to be a hiatus between architectural theory and the technical background of formal logic descriptions, and the digital machines they are implemented on. It really is strange that in spite of the omnipresence of the computer in architectural design, it still is predominantly used accepting it’s status as a black box. With BIM as my objective of research, the next thing to settle is the way i handle the technical parts about logical formalism.

Have your say
