Jim Plume

Senior Reserach Fellow, Smart Cities RC UNSW

After completing a BArch in 1976, Jim Plume continued for a further year as a full-time research student developing one of the first prototypical CAD systems to explore the notion of constructing digital models of buildings represented as assemblages of objects with embedded knowledge about materiality and relationships between the building parts, a technology now known as building information modelling (BIM).
Jim’s areas of special interest and expertise is information modelling as applied in the professional design disciplines associated with the built environment. An on-going focus of that work is in the development of the UrbanIT project, which is concerned with urban scale information models and the use of object database technologies to support design collaboration across all the built environment disciplines.
