Winners Announced in Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Workflow Competition


Budapest, August 4, 2016 – GRAPHISOFT®, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software developer for architects and designers, has announced the winners in its Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Workflow Competition. The industry’s response to GRAPHISOFT’s Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Live Connection Tool has been overwhelming. The input of users from around the world helped GRAPHISOFT produce a strong solution linking Algorithmic Design with Building Information Modeling. GRAPHISOFT was curious to learn more about how its users are applying this tool in their everyday design practice, so they were invited to put the Grasshopper-ARCHICAD connection tool to the test with innovative workflows that integrate Algorithmic Design with BIM.

GRAPHISOFT’s ‘Algorithmic Design Meets BIM’ Competition inspired outstanding designs from around the world. Competition participants were invited to submit their work developed with the combination of Rhino-Grasshopper-ARCHICAD tools and their relevant extensions. Entries were judged according to three main criteria:

  • Practicality – how the solution increases efficiency in the design workflow;
  • Inventiveness – originality in the use of the toolset;
  • BIM integration – the level of BIM methodology achieved.

The jury was made up of GRAPHISOFT’s Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Live Connection team. Competitors entered for a chance to win a 9.7” iPad Pro. In addition, eleven runner-up winners were awarded a BIMx PRO license. And the winners are…
