Yale School of Architecture Upgrades Computer Labs With ARCHICAD
San Francisco, CA - January 4, 1999
Yale University, one of the nation's oldest and most prestigious centers of higher learning, has received 33 sites of ARCHICAD 6.0 for its newly-upgraded School of Architecture computer labs.
As part of an overall program to upgrade the CAD tools available to its students, the School of Architecture will add 17 new personal computers (NT and Macintosh) to its computer lab and will introduce the ARCHICAD 6.0 sites for the first time in January 1999.
Yale School of Architecture Dean Robert Stern comments,"We look forward to developing and expanding our computer capabilities in 1999. Ultimately, we want students that are as adept as the computer and we view 3D computer-aided design as one of many important tools."
Visiting Yale Professor and Professor of Computer Programming at Southern Connecticut State University Robert Frew, who is supervising the lab upgrade, comments, "The students entering our Architectural programs now are much more capable. Yale is increasing the incorporation of digital technology into the architectural design studios with the addition of dozens of new personal computers and 2D/3D integrated CAD software programs including ARCHICAD."
"We are thrilled to be among the programs bringing the Yale School of Architecture's computer lab and design studios into the twenty-first century, said Tamás Hajas, president of Graphisoft U.S. "ARCHICAD will be the most fully-integrated, object-based CAD program available to students attending Yale."
Yale University was founded in 1701 and today is one of the world's leading centers for teaching and research.
