Luckily for him, it happened just at the moment he began looking for a software program. Having been a Mac user, with no plans to change, he was ready to go from hand-drafting right into ArchiCAD.

They report being able to fully explore a variety of design options because ArchiCAD supports their creativity with solid architectural data and building information.
