Happy holidays and season’s greetings from all of us at Vectorworks! It’s almost the end of the month, and that means it’s time for another tech roundup. We hope these continue to help improve your workflow and enhance your knowledge of our software.

The charismatic temple design featured below is a model of the Santuário Papa João Paulo II, a project by Caique Niemeyer of Caique Niemeyer Arquitetura & Design. 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. You may have seen their stunning rendering in our news about Vectorworks 2018.

When Michael Todoran, executive producer of the Landscape Architecture Podcast received an email from Braulio Gutierrez, one of his former Ohio State University peers, about software recommendations other than AutoCAD and Adobe Suite, he knew he needed to bring in another expert. Vectorworks’ Product Marketing Manager for the landscape industries, Eric Gilbey, PLA, ASLA, Prof. Member APLD, was ultimately interviewed by Todoran, so his podcast listeners could learn more about our software capabilities, and why it should become Gutierrez’s new preferred software.

Birds of a feather flock together is a proverb we’ll soon see in action through urban planning firm McGregor Coxall’s upcoming project, “Bird Airport.” With construction expected to begin in Tianjin, China in late 2017, and slated for completion by 2018, the project aims to decrease the number of endangered bird species by providing a safe place for migrating birds to access shelter and food during their long journey across Asia.

We’ve discussed how to apply to the Vectorworks Design Scholarship, what you get if you win, and best practices for applying — but what does it actually mean to win? How can the scholarship affect your professional career and be the major résumé booster that it promises to be? To find out, we caught up with Martha Carter and Morgan Price, who took home a 2015 Vectorworks Design Scholarship, to see what they’re up to now and how winning jumpstarted their careers.
