The world needs more spiral staircases
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.
