Architosh Analysis and Commentary
This is a very impressive showing of nominations for Vectorworks and may be indicative of how various publications and award programs may evaluate the latest release of Vectorworks Architect (version 2020) in the coming months.
Vectorworks will certainly not win all these honors and is up against formidable competitors with innovative technologies of their won. However, given the sheer number of nominations, the 2020 release appears to be impressing evaluators, press, and juries. Architosh has yet to review the product but we look forward to putting Vectorworks Architect 2020 through its paces.
