Who we are

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. TAP leaders monitor 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.

The call for volunteer terms starting in January 2024 is now open! Learn more about joining the TAP leadership group, or learn about other volunteer opportunities across the organization.


Join us in San Francisco on June 7 for the TAP Symposium at A'23, a continuation of our TAP BCC series!

2013 webinar: The Future of Specifications 

01-17-2013 11:26 AM

Project contract documents contain drawings and specifications. Yet the active industry discussion is about BIM (drawings) and almost no discussion about specifications. Surely there have been technology advances for specification authoring and linking to BIMs. Well-coordinated drawings and specifications reduce project risks. Is it possible to author specifications in parallel with design activities, providing critical data to designers to make well-informed decisions? This presentation is for all project participants responsible for authoring and coordinating project specifications.

This presentation is a part of the ongoing AIA Technology in Architectural Practice webinar series.
