The second annual ArchiCAD Awards & Expo for Southern CA 2001

The second annual ArchiCAD Awards & Expo for Southern CA will recognize excellence in the use of ArchiCAD software for architecture, interior design and related applications.

ArchiCAD Awards Overview

The second annual ArchiCAD Awards & Expo for Southern CA will recognize excellence in the use of ArchiCAD software for architecture, interior design and related applications. This juried competition is open to all ArchiCAD users in Southern California (information for international users). Work must be created primarily in ArchiCAD, but can be processed in other rendering, modeling, animation or multimedia/presentation programs.

The categories for submission are a matrix checklist that will allow the jury to award worthy entries using flexible criteria. Broader than traditional design competitions, recognition may be given for the design of buildings, exceptional construction documents, innovative information presentation, renderings or animations.
