School of Architecture launches ‘Books On Demand’ series

In an effort to more easily share research and design projects by faculty and students, the publications department at the Yale School of Architecture has developed a new “Books On Demand” series.

The first book in the series — edited by faculty members Peggy Deamer and Phillip G. Bernstein — is titled “Building Information Modeling in Academia.”

“Building Information Modeling in Academia” features a collection of essays by educators and practitioners examining how Building Information Modeling (BIM) is taught in architecture schools in the United States. The essays explore pedagogical issues raised by teaching BIM and provide examples of BIM-centered courses. Published with a grant from Autodesk, the book compliments “Building in the Future,” also by Deamer and Bernstein, published in 2010 with Princeton Architectural Press.

“Building Information Modeling in Academia” can be ordered via the School of Architecture’s website and will be shipped directly from the printer.

The Books on Demand series will continue with a forthcoming book in the Studio Series.
