VectorWorks Works the Grammys

Nemetschek N.A. has announced that VectorWorks was used to design the stage for the 2008 GRAMMY Celebration for the Recording Academy. The event took place February 10, 2008, in 98,0000 square feet of space in Hall A of the Los Angeles Convention Center for 6000 guests. VectorWorks Designer was used every step of the way from initial concept to the placement of every last chair.

“There’s a lot of teamwork, organized around VectorWorksas the rallying point, for the GRAMMY Celebration,” says Erick Weiss, who orchestrates the event as senior producer for Along Came Mary. “There are many people using VectorWorks and sharing files across a broad range of situations. Each player adds another layer to the master drawing we all work from, and VectorWorks keeps it all together.”

The designs were developed by Los Angeles-based Angel City Designs and Along Came Mary Productions, Inc..
