Building information modeling (BIM) has become commonplace in the AEC industry due to its advantages over traditional CAD. It's easy to see that information modeling carries the same benefits for the landscape industries, as we already see in the AEC sector.
Our February tech roundup has tips from industry and training experts on getting the most out of your workflow, along with a recap of this month’s exciting webinars.
This Marionette Monday, we’re sharing a downloadable object that enables smoother designing of complex curved objects.
Dive into this month’s Tech Roundup with two new tutorial videos.
Whether you're about to make your first foray into the professional world or you just want to shake things up with your career, it's can be challenging to think outside-the-box and discover new opportunities to pursue. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of jobs you might not have even considered yet.
Delving into the world of graphical scripting with little to no prior experience can be difficult. That’s where The Proving Ground, a data-driven building consultancy firm, comes in to help show you how it’s done with their “Coding your Nodes: Extending Marionette with Python” webinar, worth one AIA LU.
François Lévy, AIA, is on a mission to change the status quo of BIM use. According to Lévy, who is co-founder of Lévy Kohlhaas Architecture, BIM is too often employed solely for documentation purposes, and the design capabilities of the process are not realized. We talked with Lévy to highlight four tools to leverage in Vectorworks software that make the job of designing for accessible spaces easier and less prone to error.

The year is 1945. WWII just ended, millions of American soldiers are returning home, and there is a dire need for housing. Architects across the United States are struggling to find a way to cheaply and efficiently meet this need while still creating beautiful architecture. Enter Arts & Architecture magazine, creators of the Case Study Houses project, which called on designers to experiment with residential architecture and create model homes that would solve the housing crisis. The resulting iconic projects soon dotted the Los Angeles, California area, becoming an influential part of the era's architectural lexicon and inspiring designers for decades to come.
Professor Marco Hemmerling, of the Cologne University of Technology, Arts, and Sciences, and Markus Graf, a research assistant at the Detmold School of Architecture and Interior Architecture, believe that a visit to the Case Study Houses should be compulsory for architecture and design students. However, being based in Germany, they needed a more practical way to expose their students to these projects. Their answer was both practical and innovative, as they worked with students to bring the Case Study Houses into the 21st century by designing them in 3D.
