Would You Like Some Chilli Sauce With Your BIM?AECbytes Archived Article (June 28, 2011)

This Viewpoint article by Christopher Pynn and John Hainsworth, who are both Associates in Arup’s Sydney Office and actively involved in its BIM development and implementation, ponders on the question of “What is BIM?” and comes up with some interesting analogies between BIM and cuisine. Along the way, it also discusses Arup’s approach to BIM. It is a refreshingly candid article, and the analogy with food is unique and witty and makes for a great read!
