The purpose of this study is to design a Building Information Modelling (BIM) integration model for architectural education in adopting BIM culture. Most of the current models on BIM adoption are directed toward the realm of construction industries (consultant firms and contractors) and less on higher education institutions. The discourse on education is mostly concerning experimentation on curricular integration and the lack of general concepts of integration. The main research inquiry of this study is concentrated on which criteria are best suited to the education culture. Utilizing reflective discussion of past experiences and a semisystematic literature review, detailed criteria to capture the multidimensional facets of BIM adoption are proposed. The study proposes the model that offers six main integration criteria: (a) institution vision and priorities, (b) infrastructure, (c) curriculum integration, (d) human resources, (e) knowledge organization, and (f) change management. The application of the model may be limited to architectural schools which are still in the initial process of BIM adoption but the comprehensiveness of the model may possibly be developed as the basis for readiness assessment, roadmap development, and exchange terminologies between education and the wider context of architecture, engineering, construction, operation and management industries.
