Since around 2009, the use of building information modeling (BIM), a new computer-aided design method, has been advancing rapidly in Japan’s construction industry. Although the words “computer-aided design” give the impression of something inorganic, it is actually the opposite: it makes design at the scale of the human body more possible.
In addition, BIM demonstrates its effectiveness not only during design but also for initial proposals, during construction, and in post-delivery management. Bringing together complicated architectural designs with high precision, BIM might be the trump card in the construction industry. Presented here is a case of applying BIM technology and features to Toho Gakuen School of Music, Chofu Campus Building No. 1.
