Kristine K. Fallon, FAIA, joined the Chicago office of SOM in 1977 and contributed to the introduction of computer graphics to SOM architects nationwide. She began participating in architecture/ engineering/ construction (AEC) data exchange standards initiatives in the 1980’s (IGES, PDES/STEP, IFC, COBie). She was principal investigator for the Art Institute of Chicago’s study, Collecting, Archiving, and Exhibiting Digital Design Data and also served as an advisor to the MIT FAÇADE study.

I am interested in the possibility of leveraging the information model that is inherent in international standards such as ISO 16739 (IFC) to support collection and archiving of a comprehensive set of information about digital designs.
