“Borgesian BIM Object Library” DEEP CITY: Climate Crisis, Democracy and the Digital, International Latsis Symposium, EFPL, March 2021
BIM Borgesian Object Library probes the default settings of information-rich Objects found in Autodesk Revit software and downloaded from open-source 3D warehouses. Through a 10-minute video and screenshots of immaterial technical labor in BIM software, this Library questions BIM's systemic digital relationships, properties, and working interfaces of technical architectural work. Typical BIM object models are copied, edited, and embedded within more models—to the effect of an infinitely coordinated Babel of Building Information; a Borgesian library of libraries. Here, objects are critically regrouped and narrated in order to open up BIM’s current operating system of world-making, toward more just building futures.

Video Contents:
0:00 Nature-Culture Objects 
2:30 Levels of Extraction in Default BIM Materials
5:00  Eco-technical Equipment (Homage to Superstudio)
7:30 Abolish Parametric Prison Objects
10:00 Canonical Carbon (Homage to Friedrichstrasse)

Produced with Rice graduate students Yun Koo and Alec Burran.
