GRAPHISOFT®, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software developer for architects and designers, announced today the latest version of its industry-leading BIM software solution. ARCHICAD 20 features a number of important functional improvements that put the emphasis on the “I” in BIM, increasing the value for both ARCHICAD users and external stakeholders alike. Its brand new, “flat-design” graphical UI sets the new version apart from run-of-the-mill BIM tools.

“The true potential of BIM is that it can hold all the necessary information for designing, constructing and operating buildings,” said Peter Temesvari, Director of Product Management at GRAPHISOFT. “A significant part of this information is non-geometrical data. ARCHICAD 20 offers powerful workflows to manage, visualize and exchange such information with any stakeholder participating in the design and construction process.”


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.
