University of Freestate 2013 2nd year The design of this community center was lead by a focus on involving the community as much as possible during the design process. Creating exterior workshop spaces for street artists and having a more private exhibition and workshop area inside the center. As this was my first design and render using Autodesk Revit 2013 (being a 2nd year architecture student), I consider the software remarkable were much better than what I expected.

Tshwane University of Technology I'm a Second year student at the Department of Architecture. I have been using Autodesk Design Technology Over 3 years now and have found it as the most convenient and user friendly Technology and has resulted in saving me time from struggling with programs.

Design Centre 2013 I really enjoy working with Autodesk Revit software as I feel the program has so much to offer and it is pretty simple to use one you understand how to use it. Every time I have used the program I have learnt something new, may it be a new function/feature or an easier way to do something. I feel there is so much more to learn from the Revit program which is exciting and will only aid me in being more efficient and practical with the use of the program and design as a whole.
Design Centre 2013 - JAGG Coffee Shop A studio brief was given to us in class to design a coffee shop for the Johannesburg Art Gallery. The space needed to be a contemporary and vibrant space which would serve as a coffee shop by day and a social space by night, whilst incorporating a bar for exhibition openings. The space needed to engage with the surrounding community, as well as the community of the greater Johannesburg area. I really enjoy working with the Autodesk Revit software.
University of Johannesburg 2013 Btech Tower Project Finally the detail annotation features of Autodesk Revit allowed me to produce decent working drawings easily, and flexibly, responding to the 3d model as I went along.

Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University The Brief required us to “re-architecture” an old abandoned building, working within its existing framework, altering only elements that would not take away from the iconic image of the building. In this framework we were to give it a new function - A THEATRE Autodesk Revit – All 3d models (besides foliage) were modelled and drawn up in Revit. Used for space planning and proportions for each part of the space as accuracy is very important.
Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University The Brief required us students to design a retail space that was to attract foreign interest and be highly flexible in terms of seasonal changes (new look new promotion). We were also tasked to create a brand that was to be housed in this retail space. Software: Autodesk Revit and Autodesk 3ds Max
University of Johannesburg 2013 Btech: Tower Project The start-to-finish advantage of Revit helped me to concentrate on rationalizing a complex project which would normally have been nearly impossible with traditional CAD software. The conceptual massing features along with adaptive components helped me to creatively explore forms in a flexible way, responding to site conditions and contextual issues.
