We are proud to announce that JOM Architects in Zurich, Switzerland has won this year’s award that supports young Swiss architecture firms.

Young Swiss architects are proving that Vectorworks software is the best tool for the job as all three winners of the Foundation Award 2013 use the program for their innovative design work. This prestigious, annual Swiss award program recognizes firms that demonstrate a high quality of architectural skill and were founded no more than four years ago.

On May 22, architects in Switzerland will have the opportunity to attend BIM im Klartext at the Architekturforum Zürich. "BIM im Klartext" simply means "BIM in plain language," and attendees of this event will learn what BIM (Building Information Modeling) is, what the benefits of BIM are, and how BIM is used in Switzerland and other European countries.

The new visitor center for Rhine Falls at the castle Laufen was recently featured as “Project of the Week” on swiss-architects.com. Leuppi & Schafroth Architekten AG, who have been drawing with Vectorworks since 1995, were responsible for this unique design. The difficult task of transforming an existing staff house into a public building—integrating a souvenir shop, bistro, public toilet facilities, and a multi-purpose hall under one roof—was accomplished by extending the building and developing a new skin that wraps the entire structure.
