GRAPHISOFT’s Archicad 23 is 2020 Architizer A+Awards Popular Choice Winner

BUDAPEST, August 6, 2020 — Archicad 23, GRAPHISOFT’s award-winning Building Information Modeling software solution for architecture, has been selected as the 2020 Architizer A+Awards Popular Choice Winner in the Software and Digital Tools category. Architizer A+ Popular Choice Winners are selected by the online voting public with over 400,000 votes from more than 100 countries.

Archicad’s powerful set of built-in tools and user-friendly interface make it the most efficient and intuitive BIM software on the market. Featuring algorithmic design workflows and large model support, highly automated documentation, one-click publishing, photo-realistic rendering, and leveraging best-in-class analysis, Archicad lets users focus on what they do best: creating great architecture.

“Archicad is such an incredible tool for architects,” said Brett Rhode, Director, Rhode Partners. “It brings us as close as possible to designing in a fluid, natural way. It has made it possible for us to focus on what we are really passionate about and relegates a lot of the mundane tasks we used to take for granted to the background,” he added.

“We are thrilled to earn this honor,” said Akos Pfemeter, Vice President for Product Success at GRAPHISOFT. “Knowing that Architizer readers value our work to consistently improve Archicad with each release makes this award even more special. Since this competition, we released Archicad 24, with even more capabilities and improvements. I suspect it would have earned even more votes — take a look!”
