The method in which we create. The workflow that works for us. The tools that allow our creativity to be unleashed. That is what I want to help you with. To show you workflows that can help you become a better designer. To enable you to communicate your most creative ideas using the digital tools that are in your toolbox. To open you up to more possibilities if you could use the other tools that are available. So often, we are limited by the tools we have. Hopefully Method will change that by opening the door to a new set of tools that haven’t perhaps been considered before.
Hi! My name is Evan Troxel, and I’m the guy behind Method. I am a designer and educator in the field of architecture. I specialize in public works projects that include k-12 schools, community college and university projects, as well as civic and other institutional projects in development at HMC Architects in Southern California. Additionally, I have been teaching the 3d design component for first and second year architecture undergraduates and first year graduate students at Cal Poly Pomona’s school of architecture for ten years.
These are the apps we use because they get the job done!
As architectural designers ourselves, we use these tools every day. Our mantra is ‘use the best tool for the job’ and we stick by it. If we can do something better in another app, we use it. There are so many great apps out there for architectural designers that it was about time someone started talking about why we use what we use. So here are the apps we use on a regular basis, and will be talking about on this site:
- Bonzai3d & FormZ
- Maxwell Render
We’ll post tutorials on these apps and others that come along. If there’s something you want to know specifically, we’ll see what we can do about that. Write down your ideas in the contact section on the right.
* We have no affiliations with these companies or software other than a few beta testing sessions. We use them because they are good tools.
