In memory of Chuck Eastman

(1940-2020)

Charles (Chuck) M. Eastman was the godfather of model-based design and engineering of buildings. As early as 1970, he invented concepts and technologies that laid the foundations for what later became known as "Building Information Modeling" and is now widely established standard in the AEC industry.

He was a passionate, open-minded and dedicated researcher. The academic community has benefited enormously from his contributions, and will do so in the future. We lose an exceptional scholar, and a good friend.
