Paris, France - Since the beginning of May, 70 licenses of Artlantis Studio have been installed in the computer lab of the Department of Architecture at the University of Pretoria, thanks to Athol Phillips, the executive member of Autograph Design Technologies and Artlantis distributor in South Africa.
As a result, 70 students will use the software Artlantis on specific projects, with the support of their teacher. With the University of Cape Town and the Durban University of Technology (Department of Interior Design), 180 licenses are offered to architectural schools in South Africa.
"Today they are students in architecture, design or city planning, and tomorrow they will work for real," says a company representative. "By offering the students free Artlantis Studio serial numbers for one year, we express our conviction that school conditions should be similar to the professional ones. That’s why this offer includes a full commercial license without any functional limitation. We believe that builders of tomorrow need the best technological, educational, and financial existing tools, in order to learn and open their way to their future. More than 216 schools and 12,000 students have been equipped with Artlantis. They are all students from 216 universities, and architecture and design schools from all over the world, from Finland to Poland, China, Brazil, Germany, South Korea, and Mexico.
