In this chapter, an overview of the current state of the art, future trends and conceptual underpinnings of Linked Data in the field of Architecture and Construction is provided. A short brief introduction to the fundamental concepts of Linked Data and the Semantic Web is followed by practical applications in the building sector that include the use of OpenBIM information exchange standards and the creation of dynamic model extensions with external vocabularies and data sets. An introduction into harnessing the Linked Data standards for domain-specific, federated multi-models and the use of well-established query and reasoning mechanisms to address industry challenges is introduced. The chapter is concluded by a discussion of current developments and future trends.
