The Hestia Project is a BIMSI program started by Olivia Wang and Sage Murthy, two high school students from Los Angeles, California. The goal of this project is to promote Advanced Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies, which could help streamline the development process of low-income housing and/or shelter projects for homeless.
