BIM SIM Group

BIM SIM Group is a research team within the Texas A&M University College of Architecture that focuses on building information modeling (BIM) and simulation (SIM). Our research projects cover various topics and scales.

The human mind has a limit in information processing. We believe the application of BIM technologies will enable designers to push this limit.
