GRAPHISOFT ArchiCAD contest inspires students to design a coffee shop of their own style, which is Thailand’s most popular businesses. The winner of the contest was awarded a MacBook Air for his outstanding coffee shop design.


GRAPHISOFT announced the ArchiCAD Design & Skill Contest winner. The contest was held in Thailand for successful architectural students on July 15 at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Center: BITEC.

Eighty-three designs from 18 universities were submitted in a two-round competition entitled “Small coffee shop of your own style.” The objective of the contest was to give university students the opportunity to show their knowledge, creativity and architectural skills before becoming professional architects. The contest theme was chosen because coffee shops are currently the most popular businesses in Thailand and are the dream of many people.
