We're proud to sponsor the 2013 Architectural Record Cocktail Napkin Sketch Contest. Through this contest, architects and related professionals in the United States are asked to share a creative concept on a five-inch-by-five-inch cocktail napkin.
“We’re thrilled to have Nemetschek Vectorworks as a sponsor of our third annual Cocktail Napkin Sketch Competition,” said Laura Viscusi, vice president of McGraw-Hill Construction Media and publisher of Architectural Record, GreenSource and SNAP. “This unique competition builds on the tradition of the great architects who sketched some of their greatest works on napkins.”
Past entries have included drawings of iconic buildings, sketches of ancient masterworks and studies on the design process. Two grand prize winning submissions will be published in Architectural Record, and winners will receive a box of napkins printed with their sketches.
To complement the contest, the Vectorworks design team will demonstrate how architects can turn a hand-drawn sketch into a building information model (BIM) in Vectorworks software. Visitors to the Vectorworks: From Sketch to BIM site will have the opportunity to vote on a project and design details. All voters at each phase will be registered for a chance to win a Wacom® Intuos5 pen tablet, a tool that provides users with a completely natural and intuitive platform for drawing and sketching digitally.
