What is AIA Charlotte TAP?
The AIA Knowledge Community Technology in Architectural Practice Knowledge Community (TAP) serves as a resource for AIA members, the profession, and the public in the deployment of technology in the practice of architecture. Technology in Architectural Practice monitors the development of technology and its impact on architecture practice and the entire building life cycle, including design, construction, facility management, and retirement or reuse.
Formed in 2012, the AIA Charlotte TAP brings this resource to the local level in Charlotte, where it aims to:
- Push the field from representation to integration, simulation, automation and optimization
- Promote collaborative integration in practice addressing both the human and technology side of that collaboration by providing a forum for open dialogue for AIA members, the profession and the public, paying particular attention to BIM and IPD issues.
- Present case studies, best practices, legal & risk issues and perspectives from design, construction, commissioning, and owners will provide the Charlotte Building Community insight into all aspects of IPD and BIM.
- Examine and present the use of technology and its influence in the practice of Architecture and building construction.
The committee typically meets once a month and is comprised of an eclectic collection of like-minded professionals with architects, engineers, contractors, facilities management and owners represented. A TAP Symposium is offered biennially.
