Vincent van Gogh, born March 30, 1853, would be 167 years old if he were alive today. The artist has inspired many to create art of their own, including Dutch architecture firm [delacourt][vanbeek], who recently recreated Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait with Grey Felt Hat on a courtyard in Zundert, the Netherlands. The brick mosaic now lives outside of the Van Gogh House where Van Gogh was born.

It’s not a stretch to say that design requires imagination. You start with an idea, it evolves, you adapt — the creative process seems to start broad, almost wishful. It starts with a question: “What if?”
Futurity is a landscape architecture firm based out of Chicago, Illinois that designs creative landscapes for residential, corporate, and civic clients. Many of Futurity’s projects involve working with very large sites; this process typically includes a survey plan that contains a great amount of data. Anna Arbetter, licensed landscape architect at Futurity, shared how the firm contends with these challenges to their already complex workflow and how she recently found success using Vectorworks' built-in algorithmic modeling tool, Marionette, to streamline the design process.
Still not fully convinced that Marionette, the algorithmic modeling tool for Vectorworks, is for you or your firm? Look no further. Here are five reasons you should try Marionette — complete with a real-world example to demonstrate one of our most powerful product features.
To help you get through your case of the Mondays, here are some new Marionette objects specifically created in response to user comments on the Vectorworks Forum.
