SketchUp DESIGN

LEO R. KATZ ARCHITECT

For many projects, Leo uses SketchUp: a 3D modeling software utilized in the early stages of design and through design development. The 3D model provides a powerful tool for the architect to communicate the design to the client: 360-degree perspectives, virtual walkthroughs, and architectural details. Through a GoogleEarth-support feature, the model can be designed on the actual building site, to include important factors, such as topography, vegetation, and surrounding context.
