2015 Recipients Announced for the AIA/TAP Innovation Awards Program!

Since 2005, The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Technology in Architectural Practice (TAP) Knowledge Community has spearheaded an effort to highlight award winning case studies from the architectural profession and construction industry in the harnessing of Building Information Model (BIM) technology and processes to further design, construction and project excellence.

Rather than abandon the notion of BIM, the 2015 program was expanded and renamed AIA/TAP Innovation Awards emphasizes how this array of new practices and technologies will further enable project delivery and enhance data-centric methodologies in the management of buildings for their entire lifecycle, from design, to construction and through operations. AIA TAP endeavors to enliven the discourse on how these innovations can advance the profession and practice of architecture and further the mission of the Institute.
