This week, architects criticised Autodesk's BIM software - architecture and design

This week, architects criticised Autodesk's BIM software

This week on Dezeen, a group of 17 of the UK's leading architecture studios wrote a letter to American software maker Autodesk criticising the cost and lack of development of its Revit application.
In the letter, the architecture studios, which included Zaha Hadid Architects, Grimshaw and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, stated that the rising cost of Building Information Modelling (BIM) software Revit was damaging their businesses.
"Where once Autodesk Revit was the industry enabler to smarter working, it increasingly finds itself a constraint and bottleneck," it said.
In response to the letter, Autodesk vowed that it would listen to the feedback from its customers and would make addressing their concerns its "top priority". ASICS creates face mask for exercising during the coronavirus pandemic
Also responding to the pandemic, Sportswear brand ASICS released a face mask that contains vents so that people can wear it while working out.
The coronavirus continued to impact events with the organisers of the Consumer Electronics Show making the decision to cancel next year's January event in Las Vegas and replaced it with an online version.
