ARCHICAD Customer Spotlight User Group

The fun and benefits of ARCHICAD User Groups are well documented throughout this blog. The meet-ups take on various formats but in all cases, users exchange ideas, ask questions, and share their accomplishments with ARCHICAD and related BIM apps. By presenting completed projects the users share tips and tricks can inspire and help attendees get the most from the software itself. 

One such User Group included several successful ARCHICAD firms from the DC-Metro area and surrounding locales. They presented their stories at a recent Pecha Kucha meeting (Japanese for chit-chat) gathering held in Bethesda, MD. The fast-paced presentation style of devoting twenty seconds each to a series of twenty slides kept the meeting lively and interesting. We heard from Michael Patrick Rouse (MPR) Architecture, McInturff Architects, Blackburn Architects, CORE, Emotive Architecture and Northeast Collaborative Architects

In any format, what each firm shared would have been extremely beneficial. The six presentations offered insightful, witty and intelligent observations about how each makes the best use of ARCHICAD. They discussed challenges and how to overcome them – using all the tools in their ARCHICAD arsenals to collaborate and shape the built environment. All the users agreed on using ARCHICAD – but each firm used it in a way that served best. This is possibly the best side effect of a user group gathering. Seeing how well ARCHICAD responds to an individual need and workflow. 

Congratulations to all the presenters and thank you to all who attended!
