  Artifice, Inc.

  Directory | Curriculum Vitae | Statement | Teaching | Service | Research & Creative Work
Artifice was founded to deliver the DesignWorkshop modeling software to the architecture profession through commercialization. The ongoing work of Artifice provides me with a combination of professional practice in the development and delivery of architectural design tools, with developmental research as we continously extend the capabilities of the software. Our long-range goal is to demonstrate that a total building design system can be based on a fundamentally design-oriented core user interface.

Artifice has funded research in the Design Integration Lab, and has also licensed content and software to other new media publishers.

It features a much-simplified tool palette to enable "out-of-the-box" 3D viewing in a multimedia context, plus integrated mark-up tools and image export capabilities for use in teaching applications.
