GRAPHISOFT conducted a product overview and demonstration of Archicad 24 from a local market perspective. Audiences learned how they can design and deliver projects of any size with Archicad’s powerful built-in tools and user-friendly interface; the ground-breaking architect-engineer collaboration through Integrated Design.

Keynote Speaker Bence Kovács, Vice President of GRAPHISOFT Asia, joined the team from GRAPHISOFT Singapore and Malaysia, including Edmund Lau, Managing Director, Chidambaram Chidambaram, Customer Success Director; Marcelo Morim, Senior Business Development Manager; and Carlo Riveral and James Badcock, BIM Consultants at the event. Two distinguished guest speakers from Lander Loke Architects, Ian Lander, and Catherine Loke, shared how Archicad has allowed them to design great buildings.

“With BIM software gaining ground in Malaysia, Archicad 24 and the latest versions of BIMcloud and BIMx have come at an opportune time,” said Edmund Lau, Managing Director of GRAPHISOFT Singapore and Malaysia.

The event also featured Karl Fender, Founding Partner of Fender Katsalidis, in Melbourne, Australia, and long-time user of Archicad, who used the platform to design the second-tallest building in the world – the Merdeka 118. The 644-metre mega-tall skyscraper currently under construction in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was also chosen as the Archicad 24 signature building.

Along with the launch of GRAPHISOFT Archicad 24, two other BIM software updates were announced during the Experience Archicad 24! Digital Event for Singapore and Malaysia
