Condé Nast Traveler lists ARCHICAD-designed library among the world's most beautiful
GRAPHISOFT is proud to announce that the Vennesla Library and Culture House in Norway has been deemed one of the world's most beautiful libraries by Condé Nast Traveler. The award-winning building was designed by Norwegian architectural firm, Helen & Hard using ARCHICAD. "Located near the southernmost tip of Norway, Vennesla's library is more than a collection of books — it's a city cultural center and meeting place. The building hosts a coffee shop, open meeting spaces, classrooms for adult education courses, and a cinema. The long, thin wooden beams on the inside were designed to look like the inside of a whale."

ARCHICAD: looking back 20 years
Join us for a walk down memory lane as ARCHICAD guru Djordje Grujic looks back at his experience with ARCHICAD over the course of the past 20 years. "It is 20 years since October 1995, when my first review of the then current ArchiCAD 4.55 was published in the Računari magazine… Reading the article of 20 years ago about the same software that I still use and write about inevitably kicked off the comparisons: then and now, there and here… A lot has changed, but incredibly, what is the most important has stayed the same!"
