This research is an inquiry on the roles undertaken by architects in the complex process of designing and realizing buildings. It focuses on the changing AEC context in Turkey and interprets these changes from the scope of Building Information Modeling (BIM), which claims the instrumentalization of a new mode of production of buildings. Reading BIM as a reflection of the increasing demands of AEC context on the architects’ modes of operation, the thesis evaluates how the changing mode of production of buildings affects the roles of the profession of architecture.
