AIA: Architosh Coverage Highlights

Architosh’s show highlights on the San Francisco AIA National Convention.


As the 2009 National AIA National Convention & Exhibition show gets underway today, with the show floor opening up this morning, Architosh has a dense schedule of meetings and one-on-one product briefings covering all the key software players. 

Highlights will include Graphisoft’s new EcoDesigner, a meeting with Chris Yessios about auto-des-sys’ new Bonzai 3D, and several discussions planned with Autodesk, Bentley, Nemetschek, Google and more. 

auto-des-sys' new Bonzai 3D looks familiar to SketchUp but under its friendly user-interface is an industrial-strength formZ modeling engine.

auto-des-sys' new Bonzai may look familiar but under its easy looking user-interface lies the same industrial-strength modeling engine found in formZ.

The AIA itself will make several key announcements today and tomorrow. Teaming up with the city of San Francisco, the AIA will release San Francisco’s Greenest, an awarding of the city’s best green designed buildings. The AIA will also announce a 2030 Commitment concerning support for broad changes sweeping the industry, as well as Contract Document Software updates. 

From the Press Room

Oce (booth #1657) will be showing its new Oce PlotWave 300 multifunction system–a simple, green, durable, all-in-one large format printing system.
