Free for Students & Teachers
Recognizing a need to provide architecture students with the tools they need to enrich their academic curriculum, GRAPHISOFT®, the developers of ArchiCAD, have created the ArchiCAD FREE student / teacher download and interactive training guide. This download can be used, free of charge, by any student or professor for the period of one year (renewable annually).

ArchiCAD®, with its Virtual Building approach, offers architects extensive modeling and design freedom, while maintaining easy, accurate and efficient documentation while you are creating. Becoming proficient in this Virtual Building™ process, which is the foundation of the Building Information Model (BIM), will also provide students with a competitive edge in today’s marketplace.

Over a million building projects around the world have been realized using ArchiCAD’s unique Virtual Building concept. ArchiCAD is used by some of the best architects globally, including Chad Oppenheim and his team in Miami, Michel Rojkind in Mexico City, Axel Schultes’ office in Berlin and many others.

To make ArchiCAD more fun, students can post their work – and judge other’s – at, a community site developed for architectural students. This site allows students to publish their work and view fellow students’ projects from around the world. Any visitor to the site can rate the published projects on a scale of 1 to 10. It’s the perfect platform for students to get their work reviewed in front of their critics! Prizes are awarded for works that achieve the highest rating.

Graphisoft, the pioneer and leader in developing Virtual Building solutions, is widely acknowledged as the world’s #1 supplier of model-based software and services for the building industry. Its clients are at the forefront of the industry – delivering projects that are better-designed, more predictable to construct and less expensive to operate. Now students worldwide can take advantage of this technology.
