A Russian example of the OPEN BIM approach
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.
BIMx named top app for architects and construction
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!
The emotions behind working with ARCHICAD
GRAPHISOFT Latin America recently launched a video series focused on the personal and emotional benefits of working with ARCHICAD.
