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.
This Valentine’s Day, we caught up with a handful of our users who work alongside their significant others. With stories sweeter than candy, we wanted to get you into the holiday spirit by showing how their partnerships translated to career success. You’ll also discover some secrets and tips to balancing a successful modern day working/personal relationship.

The upcoming feature we are showcasing today is likely to be a crowd pleaser. In Vectorworks 2019, we are introducing clip cube support for viewports and Renderworks modes in design layers and sheet layers.
At Vectorworks, we value the use of sustainable design. That’s why we’re proud to share that San Francisco-based Vectorworks user Hamilton + Aitken Architects is a participant in the 7x7x7 Design Energy Water initiative. Through this program, the firm demonstrates ways existing school campuses can transition to Zero Net Energy (ZNE) — a clean path to the future.
