    CADFASTER 3D COLLABORATION TOOL

    As any architectural designer or design and building manager knows, working on a 3D CAD/BIM model can be extremely complex, with many parties contributing from a variety of platforms to a massively varying degree.

    As a unified design, architecture, and structural and services engineering firm, we find this to be particularly true at Arup Associates. — Published 2011.0921

    10 HILLS PLACE

    10 Hills Place was just another nondescript retail and office compound on the narrow offshoots of Oxford Street in Central London.

    Wrapped in a sleek, sculptural, and amazing new skin, the complex new transformation by Amanda Levete Architects (ALA) has created a larger, more comfortable, and better-performing building, from the actual built fabric of that preexisting jumble. — Published 2010.0915

    10 WEYMOUTH STREET, LONDON

    In central London, a renovation by Make Architects gives a radical new aesthetic and improved energy efficiency to an unremarkable 1960s apartment building.

    The basic project outline for 10 Weymouth Street might not seem glamorous — upgrading a concrete-framed postwar housing block, with an addition overlooking the mews — but in the hands of Make, the results are golden. — Published 2010.0707

    This humane health support facility designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners has received the Stirling Prize for 2009. — Published 2009.1021
