Nemetschek touts that 4/6 buildings shortlisted for RIBA Stirling Prize were designed by Vectorworks firms

Vectorworks touted as dominant used technology behind RIBA Stirling Prize Finalists


Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. has long touted that they are a true “designer’s” CAD software company–often citing longtime Vectorworks-based practice, and worldwide famous award winning architect, Daniel Libeskind as proof of that idea.

Now the company is thrilled to announce that four of the six buildings shortlisted for the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize are from architecture firms using the company’s market leading Vectorworks Architect BIM/CAD software platform. The projects and firms on that list of four include:

We have included links above where possible for readers to look at the work of these firms and hopefully these noted projects.

“I’m thrilled to see these firms recognized for their work, and it has been a pleasure supporting the teams to help them get the most out of Vectorworks, whether through seamless collaboration or the efficient management of production information,” said Steven Shorter, architect, consultant and specialist reseller for U.K.

Shorter has more than 20 years of 2D CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) experience and provides training, consultancy and support to three of the finalists: Alison Brooks Architects, Hawkins\Brown and Niall McLaughlin Architects.

The winner will be announced on September 26, 2013 during an event at The Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design at King’s Cross in London. For more information about the RIBA Stirling Prize and the awards party, visit
