The Oder, a river that runs through Opole, Poland, is a significant part of the city, and a segment that residents wish to incorporate more deeply into the surrounding architecture. The quick development of modern design technology, such as Vectorworks software, has helped this vision stay afloat during a recent Polish architectural contest, “BARGEWORK Opole,” in which the participants faced the challenge of designing the first Polish on-water office building.

When a community of quirky, mischievous creatures hits the big screen in the nationwide US opening of The Boxtrolls this weekend, you’ll have Oregon-based LAIKA to thank. Known for its Academy Award-nominated films ParaNorman and Coraline, the animation studio has created a stop-motion, hand-drawn, and computer-generated movie in which young people discover who they are and what they want to be, learning that the things that define us most are the choices we make and the people we touch.

Vectorworks users often design with people in mind. But the Swiss architecture firm of Markus Schietsch Architekten recently completed a project whose end users have four legs instead of two. The result is the Kaeng Krachan Elephant House at the Zürich Zoo in Switzerland, named after the Thai national park that is the native habitat of the six elephants it houses.
