Tomorrow (Wednesday, May 19), at 3 ET/ 12 PT, I will be on Revit Pure Live, talking landscape architecture in Revit. I will be covering some old tricks, plus I will be doing some live demo of our new Parallax App for landscape, FOREground. Some of the FOREground tools were also showcased recently at the end of an AECbytes article about civil and sites, if you want more of a preview.
Video below will be live tomorrow, and also available to watch later.

This month’s issue of Landscape Architecture Magazine has a new article out, “BIM There, Done That,” which focuses on Meghan Quinn from Office of Cheryl Barton who seems to have some pretty solid Revit experience.
It is a good follow-up to their first article last year, “The Limits of BIM“. And it is certainly refreshing to read about a landscape architect with a can-do attitude about BIM and Revit in landscape architecture. Though I was admittedly surprised by a few statements throughout the article.
