For the team at SketchUp HQ, Boulder is home. Our office has a fantastic view, three-hundred (or so) sunny days a year, and more perks than most: nerf guns, a kickball team (go Sketchballs!), and a pro-grade espresso machine that pumps coffee-scented life into our veins during the afternoon slump. Not to mention, we’ve got some of the coolest, most inspiring people to work with.
We spoke with Joseph Kim, architectural designer with CallisonRTKL; a global architecture practice responsible for some of the world’s most memorable and successful environments for developers, retailers, investors, institutions and public entities.
An advantageous member of the DAJ design team, architect Ryan Costner has completed many commercial and residential projects that anyone would be thrilled to call their own. A Colorado native, the latest EVO Rock + Fitness climbing gym in his backyard is his latest endeavor. In a community where climbing is a passionate hobby for many, I asked him how SketchUp helped him create another project that he could be immensely proud of.
Today, we’re interviewing Alex Schiff, product manager for Canvas, a new 3D scanning app that makes it fast and simple to capture a 3D model of a home… for use in SketchUp, of course!
Every day I see wild concept videos of futuristic homes. Last week, I saw a floating pod that you could live in. The bedroom was underwater and your living room was up top. A couple of years ago, someone on the SketchUp team watched this video which led is to us making a digitally fabricated Wikihouse.
I love insane, ridiculous, and forward looking concepts of the future. Not being bound by budgets, design norms, and consumer demand can allow for anyone's creativity to produce some amazing ideas.
