The Carnegie Corporation of New York awarded a single government grant totaling $682,000 which paid for the construction of four public libraries. One of the last Carnegie libraries built in the United States using that grant is the Mount Pleasant Library in Washington, DC. The Mount Pleasant Library was originally built in 1925, and was recently renovated and expanded by DC-based architecture/design firm CORE using ArchiCAD.
The Mount Pleasant Library was recognized for design excellence by the DC Chapter of the American Institute of Architects with an Honor Award, Unbuilt Category 2009 and the American Institute of Architects DC Chapter, Merit Award for Historic Resources, 2013.
In addition, the Library is seeking LEED Certification for environmentally-friendly design.
Oh Yeah!!! Cue the Kool-Aid pitcher crashing through a cinder block wall… why am I beginning the post this way? Because in his own words, John Black of Lapis Design Partners has admitted to drinking the ArchiCAD Kool-Aid – and this is his story.
Black has been using ArchiCAD since version five. He believes the best thing Autocad ever did was drop their Macintosh platform just at the moment he began looking for a software program. Having been a Mac user, with no plans to change, he was ready to go from hand-drafting right into ArchiCAD. As with many users we’ve interviewed here on the blog, he had two weeks to get up to speed enough to create a design and presentation.
It was a feast for the eyes as well as a wonderful opportunity to network and engage with some of the top professionals in New York City last month. That’s when GRAPHISOFT teamed up with T-PROJECT, the US division of Italy’s premier production and sourcing hub for fashion and interior design, to host an exciting networking event in New York City.
