Getting to know the designers who use Vectorworks is one of the best parts of what we do. Last week, we had the privilege of hosting Caique Niemeyer of Caique Niemeyer Arquitetura & Design at our headquarters in Columbia, Maryland. Caique Niemeyer is the great-grandson of prominent architect Oscar Niemeyer, a pioneer of modernist architecture known for his designs of the buildings of Brasília, Brazil’s capital city.
