Classics Remodeled in ARCHICAD: Itamaraty Palace and Yale University Gallery
GRAPHISOFT's popular Classics Remodeled in ARCHICAD series continues with two of the greatest icons of 20th century modernist architecture.
Designed by Oscar Niemeyer in 1962, the Itamaraty Palace is the headquarters of the Ministry of External Relations of Brazil. The massive 220-square-meter main hall features an iconic, 2.3 meter-wide spiral staircase without a banister.
The Yale University Gallery is one of Louis Kahn's most famous structures and a significant turning point in the history of American museum architecture. The stairway in the center reflects the triangular patterns and lines of the exterior and also acts as an sculpture in the center of the gallery space.
Watch the videos to see these brilliant designs remodeled using ARCHICAD 21's revolutionary Stair and Railing Tools.
Back to school with ARCHICAD

New Customer Success Story Video from the Kyoto KCC
GRAPHISOFT has released another user case study video, shot during the Key Client Conference in Kyoto earlier this year. This interview was conducted with Frank Hasling Pedersen, Architect, IT and BIM manager of Denmark-based Schønherr A/S, a landscape design firm.

BIMx is a top time-saving app for architects
The Architects' Journal recently released a list of what it considers the top 6 time-saving apps for architects, and GRAPHISOFT's BIMx made the list. Included were various topics from generating floor plans to mapping sun paths – award-winning BIMx was chosen as the best app to present and discover the building design in a unique and interactive way on a mobile device.
Explore BIMx in this latest video from GRAPHISOFT
Multi-award winning BIMx is a unique technology for integrated 2D and 3D building project navigation that helps bridge the gap between the design studio and the construction site. GRAPHISOFT's recently published “Explore BIMx Hyper-models on mobile devices” video explains the basics of using the latest BIMx and BIMx PRO apps on any Apple iOS or Google Android mobile device.
