Abstract

This paper examines ideas of authenticity and meaning, and considers how Heritage Building Information Modelling/Management may be used as a system which attempts to capture a site in its multiple conditions, enabling a comparison between its ideal and actual states, and permitting users to access the meanings implied by the differences between those states. HBIM implies, therefore, a recognition of what is not, as well as what is, there – while acknowledging that what is there may be intangible, such as association, identity, memory and cultural value.
