ITCON Issue on Using Gaming Technologies in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction

The Journal of Information Technology in Construction (ITcon)published a special issue on gaming meets AEC. Almost 600 pages with 32 articles on the building industry and virtual reality, augmented reality, training, education, collaborative design, etc.

Having just returned from a week at the annual Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, I am enthused to see academic recognition of the convergence of a very innovative industry (gaming) with one of the largest, but very change-resistant, trillion dollar industries - building.
