This mean that ArchiCAD users can take advantage of C4D's intuitive organic modeling toolset to create or modify breathtaking architectural structures of almost any shape. Some functions like bend, twist and magnet give architects complete artistic freedom for their creations. The new update functionality now enables users to merge changes made in ArchiCAD into their existing CINEMA 4D visualizations.

ArchiCAD and CINEMA 4D made a tremendous job to make a 'round-trip' communication workflow virtually seamless. The new plug-in is available via MAXON online updater or manually from the download page at MAXON's website and requires the latest CINEMA 4D add-on from Graphisoft that can be downloaded from the Graphisoft website.

The Acropolis Museum is Open

by Artvisualizer Press Media Sunday, June 21, 2009

June 20th 2009 is the opening of the Acrpolis Museum, over 40 years of planning, which is designed by Bernard Tschumi Architects, located in the historic area of Makryianni, the £110m ($182m; 130m euros) museum stands some 300 meters (980 feet) southeast of the Parthenon. The top floor (Parthenon Gallery) offers a 360-degree panoramic view of the Acropolis and modern Athens. The exhibition space, measuring more than 14,000 square meters (150,000 square feet), houses some of the most famous works of classical antiquity. These works are artistic expressions of a deep political change that transformed the ancient city of Athens during the 5th century BC, subsequently marking entire eras from antiquity to modernity.

The Acropolis unites collections that are currently housed in multiple institutions, including the outdated Acropolis Museum (built in the 19th century with gallery space of 1,450 square meters, or 15,500 square feet).

The first Bonzai3d Workshop, held on Dubai

by Artvisualizer Press Media Friday, June 19, 2009
The first Bonzai 3D workshop will be held in Dubai at the United Arab Emirates and will be run by Maher El-Khaldi, of Shape Architecture Practice+Research. The dates are from June 19-21, 2009. To participate visit this site:

3D Sketching With Bonzai3d: Workshop Description
Friday June 19th to Sunday June 21st 2009
Friday 2pm - 6pm; Saturday & Sunday 10am - 2pm

Professional : $400; Students (with Verification]: $250

Expressing your design ideas in 3D should not be hard, or time consuming. While a number of CAD systems offer simple interfaces, they compromise quality of geometric models, making hard to proceed into design development.

In this workshop, participants will learn object construction techniques and strategies which will boost their speed and efficiency in expressing ideas via 3D sketching. You won’t need to set next to the 3D modeling “guy” in your office!
The main vehicle for this class is Bonzai3D, widely known as the “Sketchup Killer” among online CG communities.
Bonzai3D offers a fluid, dynamic and smart interface, one that “literary” works with the designer. Also, you will find time-saving tools such as Boolean operations, Push-Pull, Rounding, Deformations, Google-warehouse and dynamic object libraries. In addition, Bonzai3D offers more than 20 import/export file formats making it a perfect player in your design workflow.

Instructor Background

Maher is a PhD researcher and a class instructor at Georgia Institute of Technology, Design Computing group. He received a Master of Science in Design and Computation from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2007. Maher worked as a private tester for Bonzai3D during its initial versions.

Gadjah Mada University, department of Architecture and Planning, , together with The Uzo Nishiyama Memorial Library will hold an International Seminar with the theme "Making Space for a Better Quality of Living", on 18 August 2009, at the Department of Architecture and Planning, UGM, Yogyakarta.


Since the beginning of our existance, we have tried to manipulate the immediate physical space around us in which we live in for our life necessities. Firstly for shelter and security, then for reasons of functions of livelihood, and then for social status and aesthetics. The way we manipulate the space around us – intentionally planned or unintentionally created, by a single architect/planner/designer or by social consensus – develops through time in accordance to civilization, the development of science, the transformation of social systems, the improvement of technology, and the changing moods of aesthetics. It is in man’s humane instincts to always have the need to improve and advance, creating something that is much better than the present, and improving the immediate space around us where we live is a must.

The creation and analysis of better quality physical space for living is not only done by one single field of study, it is a multi complex task, involving the creation and analysis of socio-economic, cultural, technological, spatial and environmental aspects of physical space, and considering whether these new ideas from different fields of view will positively be beneficial towards human
civilization. With current world-scale problems such as global warming, endemic of new diseases, social and economical disparity, and so much more, it is hoped that even the smallest change or improvement that we make on the physical environment may become the change we seek towards a better quality of life in the future.

This International Seminar which is supported by the collaboration of Department of Architecture and Planning, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia and Uzo Nishiyama Memorial Library, Japan, hopes to discuss together the relevant strategies regarding these matters. The wide scope of topics is hoped to encourage participants from a wide range of fields to share a common ground relating to making space for a better quality of living.

THEME “Making Space for a Better Quality of Living”

Conference participants are welcome to discuss on any subject within the scope of the main theme. Sub topics that are relevant include:
- Socio-economic aspects of built environment (keywords: inhabitants, activities, environmental psychology, housing strategies, environmental strategies), adaptation, revitalization)
- Cultural aspects of built environment (keywords: local context, activities, history, conservation/revitalization)
- Technological aspects of built environment (keywords: structural system, building material,
- Spatial aspects of built environment (keywords: land use, circulation, transportation, boundary, zoning, management)
- Environmental aspect of built environment (keywords: ecology, thermal comfort, landscape, healthy environment)
