Prezi for Architects - Available Now!



As many of you know, I released BIM After Dark almost a month ago.  The response has been awesome and the feedback has been great.  If you have not checked out the BIM After Dark website yet, click here.  Originally, I packaged "Prezi for Architects" as bonus materials for the "Complete Package".  This will remain as is.. with a new option.

I received quite a few emails from people who purchased the "Videos" and "Videos Plus" package asking if I could offer "Prezi for Architects" on it's own.  So I did!  There is now an options to buy the Prezi videos and templates separately (if you so desire):


Have you heard of Prezi? Have you used it yet? Are you still using those boring old PowerPoint templates for your presentations? You've embraced technology enough to be using BIM authoring tools but you still present with PowerPoint!?

Get with the times! Prezi is perfect for architecture!



For those of you who are not familiar with Prezi here is a perfect definition:

"Prezi is a virtual whiteboard that transforms presentations from monologues into conversations: enabling people to see, understand, and remember ideas." (Prezi.com).

A proper Prezi presentation illustrates an understanding of scale, orientation, movement, design, and proportions. Hmmm... All of those things sound very familiar. With Prezi you can lay out an array of ideas in a non-linear form and focus on which ideas matter. It's perfect for us scatter brains!

Another reason I feel Prezi is made for architects is the ability to zoom. Zooming changes scale. Imagine being able to quickly zoom from a campus map, to a floor plan, to a room, and then back out to a campus map. Seamlessly changing scale while keeping your audience in context. Brilliant!  (Click here to check out my Masters Thesis Prezi presentation...)

Not convinced yet? Still want to fire up PowerPoint and get that gradient background master slide rolling? Click here to download BIM After Dark. The complete package includes a 10 minute video that teaches you everything you need to know about Prezi (again, there is also an option to download "Prezi for Architects only). That's it... Ten minutes! It is that easy to learn.
