BUDAPEST, April 28, 2016— Following a 6-month public beta phase involving over a thousand architects and designers worldwide, GRAPHISOFT® has released its intelligent Grasshopper–ARCHICAD Live Connection. This industry-first, bi-directional “live” connection allows Rhino/Grasshopper users to connect to a professional BIM software (ARCHICAD).


GRAPHISOFT’s award-winning mobile BIM communication tool, BIMx PRO, has won the 2016 Architizer A+ Award in the Mobile Apps category. GRAPHISOFT won both the professional jury’s award and ranked highest in user votes in its own category.

Architizer, the world's largest and fastest growing website for architecture, launched the definitive architectural award program with 100+ categories and over 300 jurors. The Architizer A+ Awards received entries from 100 countries and represents the best of architecture and design worldwide. Over 400,000 online votes by architects and designers were cast worldwide.


GRAPHISOFT is pleased to announce that its award-winning BIM project presentation application, BIMx, now offers its model sharing option for Android users as well.


The inventor of COBie, Bill East, has been working with Rob Jackson, Associate Director of Bond Bryan Architects, to simulate the early design in ARCHICAD of one of four dormitories on a fictitious site adjacent to the University of Illinois in Champaign, Illinois. The goal is to create a reference COBie test project.


Join us for a walk down memory lane as ARCHICAD guru Djordje Grujic looks back at his experience with ARCHICAD over the course of the past 20 years. "It is 20 years since October 1995, when my first review of the then current ArchiCAD 4.55 was published in the Računari magazine… Reading the article of 20 years ago about the same software that I still use and write about inevitably kicked off the comparisons: then and now, there and here… A lot has changed, but incredibly, what is the most important has stayed the same!"
