BIM in Iran: When News Headlines Hit Home

Oh the people you meet on the road of international BIM Activism.

This is Behzad.  Behzad lives in Iran.

He is doing some fantastic work, but he is isolated. Over the last few years, he has submitted papers to different BIM events globally, but because of the sanctions against his country, he is getting nowhere.

Thailand and Iran have decent diplomatic relations and he was able to join us for Autodesk’s Bangkok event. All he wants is friends. He wants to share his experience and learn from others, but the boundaries of politics keeps him separated. Not much Twitter and YouTube in Iran…the Iran government either blocks content out, or the rest of the world won’t let him in.

My hope is that we can welcome Behzad to the RTC family. If you want to strike up a conversation with him, let me know. He would be delighted to hear from you.
