While industry articles and schoolwork are great ways to learn, nothing beats the sharing of information and tips during industry events. On January 24 and 25, over 400 students and local practitioners gathered at Birmingham City University for the second UK Building Information Modeling (BIM) Expo and Camp — BIM in Birmingham. We helped organize the event with the Association of Academic Educators (aae) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Attendees learned all about BIM through different showcases, presentations, and educational seminars.

Getting to know the designers who use Vectorworks is one of the best parts of what we do. Last week, we had the privilege of hosting Caique Niemeyer of Caique Niemeyer Arquitetura & Design at our headquarters in Columbia, Maryland. Caique Niemeyer is the great-grandson of prominent architect Oscar Niemeyer, a pioneer of modernist architecture known for his designs of the buildings of Brasília, Brazil’s capital city.
