BEST OF BUILD BOSTON

Build Boston, the largest regional conference and trade show for the design and construction industry in the United States, recently demonstrated again why it has earned such preeminence.

More than 14,000 architects, designers, construction and facility managers, and owners attended the 27th Build Boston conference, hosted by the Boston Society of Architects in November 2011. The trade show floor boasted some 300 vendors — up 6% over last year — who plied their products with the usual vigor. — Published 2012.0111

BUILD BOSTON 2010

The venerable Build Boston conference often provides an excellent way to take the temperature of the architecture and construction industry. This year was no different, as the conference, now in its 26th year, took on a leaner, less glitzy feel, with a smaller trade show area and fewer celebratory ballroom events. But it was clear that attendees were serious about preparing for the future: the nearly 200 workshops and seminars were extremely well attended by thousands of industry professionals. — Published 2010.1215

MAP SERVICES HIT THE STREETS

Mapping has become one of the most competitive areas in free web services. Everyone needs it, everyone uses it including the architect who wants to get somewhere.

With such popularity, advertising dollars flow freely in and investments into new mapping and viewing features seem to come quite frequently. These days you can even see somewhere, in many cases, without leaving the office. — Published 2008.0611

BUILD BOSTON 2007

Fundamental changes in the nature of architectural practice and building construction are taking place today. Those changes were clearly evident at the 2007 Build Boston convention and trade show. This conference has become, over the years, one of the key learning opportunities for the construction professions. And with over 15,500 attendees and a hall full of exhibitors, many workshops at the November conference were sold out in advance. — Published 2007.1212

GIS ALL OVER

We are blown away by the amount of GIS data that is now available online. GIS, or Geographic Information System, data refers to a mapping database. Most people are now familiar with free mapping services such as Mapquest, Windows Live, or Google Earth, but GIS data goes well beyond that level of information. — Published 2007.0912

CONTINUING EDUCATION ONLINE

We live in a wonderful age in which architects can be educated in almost any subject you can imagine, via the Internet. Over the course of this last year, I have gone "back to school" online for lessons in such diverse subjects as book publishing, SketchUp photo modeling, calibrating bitmaps in DataCAD, doing ZiPCAD punch lists, and solving a Rubik's Cube. — Published 2007.0221

3D PDF

In the past, various 3D formats (such VRML, 3DS, 3DMF, and o2c) have been touted as "the 3D PDF" (portable document format). But their opportunity to become the de facto standard may have passed. In January 2006, Adobe unveiled its own 3D format software, called Adobe Acrobat 3D, which actually uses the latest PDF file format. As with those other formats, a free viewer is available. — Published 2006.0913
