In 2018, we partnered with the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) to run the In Studio Render/Sketch competition, where students can post their best sketches and renders to share with our Instagram account. 2019’s competition saw tons of stunning entries and the winners are in.

While most countries hold World Architecture Day on the first Monday in October, Brazil celebrates on December 15. Why? Because it’s the birthday of renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.
Vectorworks loves supporting student designers. Our Design Scholarship does just that — it’s a chance for students to win a substantial cash prize along with recognition in the realm of design.

Feeling wary about integrating BIM into your workflow? Thinking that adopting BIM will disrupt your design process?
Here are two ways that we can help.
Nothing happens in a vacuum, and architecture is no exception. Architectural projects don’t often get to start from scratch — they often deal with existing building conditions, such as a renovation or connection of new construction to an existing structure. And usually the documentation must reflect multi-phase construction, such as design-built construction delivery or traditional design-bid-built with several phases.
Topics: Architecture, Vectorworks, 2D workflows, IFC export, multi-phase construction, design-bid-built, demolition plans, phased construction plans, design-built construction, BIM workflow, layers and classes, object libraries, views and viewports
If you haven’t been following our forum or social media accounts, here’s your chance to catch up on our Teaser Tuesday reveals, where for the past five weeks we’ve been showcasing a single new feature each Tuesday.
Now in its third year, our Design Scholarship has continued to help students reach their highest potential by offering nearly $40,000 in prizes for projects that demonstrate the creativity and high-caliber work of the next generation of design professionals.
