More than 300 attendees gathered at the Shinagawa Grand Hall in Tokyo alongside representatives from Vectorworks headquarters to witness how the latest features can enhance Japanese designs.

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.
