We gave you an exclusive look at the 2018 Vectorworks Design Summit and now it’s here — Vectorworks University, the new centralized training platform and the main repository for all training resources, webinars, tech tips, and more.
Women across the globe move architecture forward every day. We spoke with Estonian architects Hanna-Liisa Mõtus and Karin Harkmaa about their recent projects, their design approach, and their experiences working in a male-dominated field.

It must be daunting to design a school. Think about it: many will treat your project as a second home — at such a young age, their environment is bound to shape them. For the rest of their lives.
The landscape architecture industry, as it moves to standardize BIM workflows, is experiencing a transition not unlike moving from hand drawings to CAD drafting.
Landscape architects increasingly feel pressured to integrate BIM into their workflows to maintain ownership of the entire design and build process. This transition seems daunting, perhaps even unachievable, but several firms are up for the task.

In recent years, digital design has seen a transformation with the implementation of BIM, or Building Information Modeling, the concept that data be attached to its corresponding digital model. The idea here is to ease communication between project partners by having one point-of-reference, one model that can be used through all design phases — from sketching to construction.
For International Women’s Day this year, we want to celebrate Dwyer Architectural, the women-owned firm with locations in Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo, New York. Established in 2010, their nineteen-person firm has worked tirelessly within the healthcare, medical research, and higher education fields to create stunning designs for their clients. In 2013, they applied for and were accepted into the New York State Minority and Women Business Development (NY MWBE) program, allowing them to become a certified women-owned firm, a change that has helped them make a name for themselves within the architecture industry.

If you’re a BIM manager, you understand the importance of office standards and managing resources. We’d like to help make your job easier. Whether you work in a large or small firm, we have a new guide just for you.
Making the move to BIM? We have a new tool to help you assess your organization’s existing processes and procedures to align your BIM goals with your defined BIM uses. It’s call the Strategic Planning Guide for Adopting BIM.
In this video, the team at Itten+Brechbühl AG discusses how successful implementation of a Big BIM process has transformed the way the firm approaches design — and solidified their name as a leading architecture firm in Switzerland.
