Discover the technologies powering By Design.

At the heart of each episode of By Design are the technologies driving the success of each firm.

Across each season, ARCHICAD repeatedly underpins each firm’s success. As the platform of choice for the world’s most innovative firms, ARCHICAD not only unlocks greater design inspiration, but dynamic new methods of workflow efficiency, technology, connectivity and business profitability.




Central to each By Design episode is ARCHICAD. Since its inception in 1980, ARCHICAD has continued to lead the way in BIM performance, productivity and multi-discipline collaboration.

As a BIM product, ARCHICAD users enjoy the ability to leverage their model to effortlessly create project renders, walk-throughs and documentation, improve accuracy with inbuilt clash-detection, and collaborate with other platforms thanks to inbuilt OPEN BIM support. Try it today



The BIMx app allows architects to share their projects with clients and project stakeholders via a smart device. During the filming of By Design Season 2 Episode 3, Stefan Hampden from CAST Architecture explained that by using this app, his clients are able to explore their projects in their own time, and gain a clearer understanding of the design.

Meanwhile in Season 2, Joseph Vance explains the app helps him avoid change orders and errors during the construction phases.
