About TAP

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.



 

This year there are over 500 sessions to explore at A'17, but here is the shortlist where you can network with your TAP colleagues! The theme of this year's conference is "Anticipating a Better Tomorrow" and The AIA Technology in Architectural Practice Knowledge Community is excited to recommend sessions that explore cutting-edge technology and tools for practice. We hope to see you some (or all!) of these events in Orlando.
