Building Information Modelling for Visualisation in AEC Education.
Paper in proceeding, 2005

This paper outlines the process used to introduce building information modelling into the academic curriculu-m of built environment students and reflects on the techniques used to ensure appropriate use of parametric tools for the purposes of visualisation. The integration of building information modelling into other curriculum subjects is outlined. The study introduces the collaboration between Northumbria University and Chalmers Lindholmen Visualiseringsstudio and considers the future potential of building information modelling and whether it may contribute to reduced time and cost of creating three dimensional models suitable for Virtual Reality worlds.
