The architects at HCF and Associates in Singapore have used this residential project to implement a BIM-integrated design process. From conception to construction, BIM has not only proven to minimize time and resource consumption, it has also had a positive impact on the architects' thought process and productive mindset.
The Center for Rhythmic Gymnastics project, by Moscow-based CPU Pride, won the “BIM 2016” Russian competition in the “BIM project: sports facilities” category. The project clearly demonstrates the successful use of the OPEN BIM approach in its design. “During the initial stage, we created a preliminary concept rather quickly, consisting of several completely different solutions, such as extraordinary forms, or a more geometric appearance maintaining a clear rhythm of the façade. We were able to develop the first 3D model in less than a month,” says chief architect of the Pride company, Elena Myznikova. The project is an excellent case study for the OPEN BIM approach.
Archisnapper has put together a list of the top apps for architects, and it's no surprise that BIMx tops the list. "If you’re using ARCHICAD, then you should consider BIMx from Graphisoft, an app that allows architects to present or share designs with clients and contractors. The app offers full control of your BIM projects, with a cloud interface for working on site. BIMx helps bridge the gap between the design studio and the construction site, sparing you the misery that comes from printing out plans." We couldn't agree more!
Graphisoft has announced the release of ArchiCAD 22, the latest version of its award-winning BIM software solution. ARCHICAD 22 improves the architectural design and documentation workflow for building façades. In addition, ARCHICAD 22 introduces significant improvements to its construction modeling, information management and 2D performance. “The most powerful thing about our new Façade Design workflow is that it covers the entire design workflow from concept through design development to documentation supporting local standards – all 100% BIM," said Peter Temesvari, Director of Product Management at GRAPHISOFT.
BUDAPEST, May 10, 2018 – Graphisoft®, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) architectural software developer, has introduced a significant update to its multi award-winning BIM presentation and communication app, BIMx. Available for both iOS and Android users, the new Presenter feature allows architects and clients to experience building designs in a more immersive and organized way.
GRAPHISOFT has unveiled the browser-based version of BIMx, making ARCHICAD content navigable as an additional service of the BIMx Model Transfer site. The BIMx Web Viewer lets users and their clients access the full content of a Hyper-model, including 3D models, documentation and any BIM data without having to install an application or browser plug-in. Users can navigate directly in their browser window on both PC and Mac.
GRAPHISOFT is proud to announce that The Architectural Review and The Architects' Journal have named Sandra Barclay 2018's "Architect of the Year" for her work on Peru's Museo de Sitio de Paracas, designed by ARCHICAD client Barclay & Crousse. The museum was built on the ruins of its predecessor, which was destroyed by an earthquake in 2007. The judges lauded the building's simplicity and strength in a challenging context. "The architects responded to the lack of context with a design that is both robust and simple, yet powerful, and even its man-made imperfection adds value to the building."
HELSINKI, February 22, 2018 – ARCHICAD users can now fully benefit from the latest update of Solibri's unique software extension that provides a link between ArchiCAD and Solibri Model Checker (SMC).
"With this link, our joint customers will benefit from a best-in-class design quality assurance workflow, allowing them to detect design errors well in advance, correcting those before generating costly errors on construction sites," said Péter Temesvári, Director of Product Management, GRAPHISOFT
