Finalizing the agenda for the 2017 Vectorworks Design Summit, organizer and global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc. is announcing Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar and Brad Cloepfil, founding principal, AIA, NCARB of Allied Works Architecture as the keynote speakers. Hosted from Monday, September 18 to Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at the Baltimore Marriot Waterfront Hotel in Maryland, the conference includes more than 70 hours of ROI-driven industry training on trends and tools, several networking events to help attendees make beneficial connections for their careers, as well as one-on-one face time with training and support staff. The first keynote, led by Sarkar, takes place on day two of the conference, September 19, at 9 a.m. ET. The keynote will include an introduction from Sarkar about the latest features in Vectorworks 2018, scheduled for release this fall. Additionally, customers will come on stage and share how Vectorworks software empowers their business to succeed. On day three, September 20, at 9 a.m. ET, Cloepfil will kick off the second keynote, “Applied Arts,” highlighting Allied Works Architecture’s design process through innovative case studies. Architect, educator and principal of Allied Works Architecture, Cloepfil creates culturally resonant architectural designs, forged by the defining elements of their mission and site. Cloepfil’s earliest influences lay outside of architecture — ranging from the vast landscapes and monumental works of civil engineering in the Pacific Northwest, to the simple, yet profound gestures of land and installation artists. His approach to design combines an intensive focus on the specific character of each project with an understanding of architecture’s transformative possibilities. “I hope attendees leave my keynote feeling inspired to explore the craft of making, whether they’re designing anything from buildings, landscapes or stage designs to plates, tables or perfume bottles,” said Cloepfil. “Although, this passion for making would be nothing without the means to do the job — tools like Vectorworks software that allow designers to explore and document innovative projects.” Cloepfil founded Allied Works Architecture in his native Portland, Oregon in 1994 and opened the New York City office in 2003. The recipient of numerous design awards, he holds degrees from the University of Oregon and Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, and he has taught and lectured widely throughout North America and Europe. Allied Works Architecture is widely acclaimed for their arts and cultural projects. For the past 14 years, they’ve been using Vectorworks software on some of their most prestigious projects, including the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City; the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver, Colorado; the National Veterans Memorial & Museum in Columbus, Ohio; and the National Music Centre of Canada, in Calgary. The firm’s varied and rigorous design process ultimately comes to rest through the clarity of the drawing. Vectorworks’ team has worked as a partner to provide the best available digital modeling, scripting and rendering software, allowing Allied Works Architecture to maintain the forgotten power of the well-drafted sheet through a unique, drawing-like drafting environment. As part of the schedule’s finalization, the early bird special for registration has been extended until June 7, 2017. Interested participants should register now to ensure $100 in savings.
