GRAPHISOFT has released another user case study video, shot during the Key Client Conference in Kyoto earlier this year. This interview was conducted with Frank Hasling Pedersen, Architect, IT and BIM manager of Denmark-based Schønherr A/S, a landscape design firm.


ARCHICAD 21's iconic signature building is Sydney University's new Charles Perkins Centre. The firm behind the Charles Perkins Centre, fjmt, is a multidisciplinary design studio and one of the region’s foremost and awarded architecture and urban design practices. Now owning 97 ARCHICAD licenses, fjmt was at the forefront of the industry in Australia, introducing desktop CAD and PDF workflows in the 1990s. A project the size of the Charles Perkins Centre comes with its own set of challenges and opportunities.


GRAPHISOFT has wrapped up a successful Key Client Conference in Kyoto that was host to architecture's very best representatives from around the world. In addition to a number of practical presentations by GRAPHISOFT leaders, developers, and invited guests, clients were treated to a presentation by Johnathan Redman, Principal of FJMT (Australia), which designed ARCHICAD 21's signature building, the Charles Perkins Centre. The nearly 300 participants were also on hand to witness the Worldwide Premiere of ARCHICAD 21 in a 1.5 hour presentation that is now available for viewing.


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!"


BUDAPEST, July 14, 2015 – GRAPHISOFT®, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) architectural software developer, is pleased to announce that GRAPHISOFT Brazil has inked a deal with Fernandes Arquitetos Associados (FAA), one of Brazil’s major architecture firms and the only Brazilian firm responsible for designing two 2014 World Cup arenas..

“Following one month of work by our BIM Manager, and a discussion of the results with the team, we concluded that ARCHICAD, in addition to having a price closer to our reality, was also much closer to everything we had always looked for in a BIM tool. With a very positive technical evaluation and competitive cost, it was relatively easy to make the decision to migrate to ARCHICAD,” Fernandes said.
