#136 - Computer Programs for Architects

This week David and Marina discuss software in design and architecture. Don't worry! It's not as boring as it sounds! The two cover the more pragmatic and specific issues and the more conceptual ones: everything from what programs you need to know to design and to get hired different offices; how to learn programs; balancing technical skillsets with conceptual thinking; why working in the computer is both advantageous and dangerous; 2D drafting versus 3D modeling; things to consider when choosing a software; the failures of successes of BIM programs for employers and employees; key issues to consider before transitioning to BIM; what BIM programs are best (Revit or ArchiCAD?) for small and large offices and which project types. The more office-focused and BIM-focused conversation starts at 37:30. Workflows between different programs.
