“My firm was an early adopter of the forward thinking design software, ARCHICAD. We’ve been using ARCHICAD for over twenty five years now and have found it to be the most comprehensive architectural design software on the market. It’s a complete package - suitable to use from early conceptual design through BIM oriented construction documents and into building construction. I don’t know of another software package that handles all of these various design tasks with such seamless and efficient continuity."

“The bulk of my career in architecture has been firmly and happily spent in the Fine Art world of the commonly known 2D hand rendering style and the skillful play between pen weights and poche, or shadows. However, there is an incredible shift in this profession today that is even more beautiful – 3D modeling and BIM production in ARCHICAD. Graphisoft has built for my firm such a powerful platform for rendering that today’s most savvy clients get excited. No matter the style or size of architecture, the production end of ARCHICAD and BIM makes this architect and business owner excited!”
