Construction design, part 3

Google SketchUp mock-up model with some custom elements included.

Useful iPad apps for architects and designers

Since my purchase of Apple’s iPad I have continuously been searching for useful applications for my use as a landscape architecture student. The list grows by the day. In this post I will list applications I have come to use regularly in my studies, as well as recommendations on useful tools for the architect and designer on the go. Many of the applications featured in this list have previously been selected as App of the Week in the Apple application store.

  • We need to talk about water
    They say that the future wars and conflicts will be about water. Battles will be fought over a valuable and vital resource due to the decreasing levels of it. Despite our dependency of it, we seem to take it for granted. Is the ubiquity of water causing us to manage it so callously?
