This article highlights five critical lessons that the AEC industry has learned in the process of coping with the pandemic and economic disruptions while simultaneously addressing an escalating client demand for more sustainable, ethical design.
This research paper describes the creation of a low-level Digital Twin that allows visualizing and monitoring five key parameters that measure the air quality in an operating room suite at a health care facility in Denver, Colorado.
This article describes how the Duke Ellington School of the Arts (DESA) renovation project used OpenBIM for detailed coordination across project teams, making an extremely complex adaptive reuse project possible.

Layer is a new AEC application that was launched close to six months ago to address what seems to be an obvious need in the industry—organizing and integrating the vast amount of disparate data that is typically collected on site during the retrofit or construction of a building project.
Fender Katsalidis describes the implementation of AEC technology on the “Merdeka 118” project, a 118-storey, mega-tall skyscraper under construction in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Upon completion, it will become the tallest building in Malaysia and Southeast Asia, and the second-tallest building in the world.
This article questions why we still don’t have a smart building design tool which does not require us to painstakingly model every detail in our buildings, but can automatically create much of it from a conceptual sketch using a rule-based expert system.
